Gilthill Primary School

Cross Country

This week children across both Year 5 and 6 competed in the Broxtowe Cross Country Championship. In front of a busy crowd at Hall Park, Gilthill scooped up podium positions in every single race despite the drizzly and muddy conditions that caused one of our Year 6 runners to lose his shoe half way around the track! All children that competed did a tremendous job and ran terrifically, using all of their grit and determination to take them over the finish line. We would like to thank all parents/carers that took time out of their busy schedule to attend the event and support the children as they raced. We will keep you informed if another cross country event follows in the near future.

Here are the results from the competition

Year 5 Girls – 1st
Year 5 Boys – 3rd
Year 6 Girls – 2nd
Year 6 Boys – 2nd

Well done Gilthill!
