Cross Country Event at The Northern Gateway Sports Park with years 3, 4, 5 and 6

On Tuesday the 9th Of November we took a group of year 3, 4, 5 and 6 pupils to a cross country event at the new Northern Gateway Sports Park in Colchester. The children ran in the same gender year groups against other schools, with approximately 70-80 children in each race. The children all ran to the absolute best of their ability and did the school proud. Just a few special mentions; firstly, to Mia who came first (by a long way!) in her year group and will be going forward to compete in the Individual School Games County Finals in April. Secondly to Mason and Rayan who came 6th and 7th in their year group, Imogen who came 10th in her year group, Blaise who came 11th in his year group and Jaxson who came 17th in his year group.

We are very proud of you all. A special thank you must also go to all the staff and parents who helped transport and then support the children, because without you we wouldn't be able to attend these events.

St. Lukes v Gosbecks - drew 0-0

St. Lukes v Braiswick - won 2-0

St. Lukes v Lawford - lost 0-1

The children all played brilliantly and we had some great goals from Rayan, Ollie, James, Danny and Mason. Scott made some amazing saves and the rest of the team demonstrated some fantastic football skills and tremendous sportsmanship. They were a credit to the school.

We had to wait anxiously to see where we had come in the competition. We all thought about 3rd or 4th. However. after a tense wait and run down of results from 8th to 1st, we found out that we came 2nd!!! We were all over the moon and Mrs Heard and Mrs Walker were very proud of them all.
