Copped Hall Run 2013

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.

Epping Town Show Races

20130708-010725 PM.jpg

Those attending the annual Epping Town Show were in for a treat this year. The charity wheelbarrow race had an extra entry... two fresh faced individuals in Ivy Chimneys school uniform strode purposefully towards the start line, proudly displaying their painted barrow, complete with blackboard graffiti.

The entries were organised into 3 heats, with local businesses fielding teams for this fantastic event. Ivy were drawn in heat 3, against some very tough opposition in the shape of firefighters and burly builders!

Sam Roberts took the handles first, with Mr Jones sitting pretty in the barrow. A flying start, excellent swap-over and determined return leg were sadly not enough to finish in the top two and qualify for the finals.

Well done to everyone who came along to support the event, a lot of money was raised for some very deserved local charities.
