🏃🏻‍♂️ Junior Cross-Country

Junior Syndicate Teachers —

The Junior cross-country event will be held on Friday 7th September from 10.20am.


The cross-country involves the 5 to 7-year-olds in Rooms 1, 2, 4, 5, and 13.

  • 10:20-11: 20 am - 5-year-olds - 1 lap
  • 11:40-12:40pm - 6-year-olds - 2 laps
  • 11:40-12:40pm - 7-year-olds - 3 laps

The age cut off will be the day of the cross country - whichever date it is run.

Children are encouraged to wear their house colours which are as follows, whether this is in the form of a t-shirt, hair ribbon or face paint:

Maungakawa – Red

Maungatautari – Green

Kakepuku – Yellow

Pirongia – Blue

Hopefully, the weather will be sunny and fine. However, if it is not suitable for sitting outside and running a decision will be made by 8 am and announced on the school's Facebook page and our individual class Facebook pages.

This year we have a postponement date of Wednesday 19 September.

If the weather is not good that day either, then the cross country will be cancelled completely.

Decisions regarding unpredictable weather are difficult, but we need to make a decision as soon as possible and stick to it.

If you are uncertain as to what house your child is in, please call the school office on 827 5747.

Looking forward to seeing you on the day to cheer on your little ones.

Thank you - Junior Syndicate Teachers
