On Sunday the 6th of October, about 40 children took part in the annual cross country run, in the grounds of the Copped Hall Estate.
With the sun burning off the mist, the children took their starting positions – ready to race! The claxon sounded and off they went. The children sprinted into action, with Henry J taking an early lead, as they rounded the bend and disappeared off into the distance.
It seemed like no time at all before the children were back, pounding up the hill towards the finishing line, with Henry still maintaining his lead. With 1st place secured it was only a matter of seconds before the rest of the Ivy team were streaming over the finish line.
Well done to everyone who took part and helped to snatch 4th place in the schools overall position.
Full results are now available on The Rotary Club of Epping website and the children received their medals and certificates in Friday’s assembly.
Thank you to all of the parents and Mr Furness for their support and to Mr Jones for organising the team.
