On Thursday 5th October Mr Bunhejee, Mr Johnson and Mrs Dainty were lucky enough to be able to take 27 children to the Erewash School Sports Partnership Cross Country event at Wilsthorpe Secondary School. The team had been practising for the last three weeks, with Mr Bunhejee and Mr Johnson at dinner times, and were excited to finally get to race against other schools. Representatives from Dovedale, Sawley Juniors, Firfield, Parklands Infants, Scargill, Grange, Ladycross and Harrington gathered for the start of the races. The first race was the Y5/6s racing over a distance of ¾ of a mile. The team did really well and finished 2nd overall with some fantastic individual performances. After that came the Y3/4 race over ½ a mile. We had lots of top 10 finishers and ended up winning the Y3/4 team race. Finally came the infant race with over 100 children, running a quarter of a mile. Running at the front were the children of Longmoor who managed to have the 2nd and 4th place boys and girls. Fantastic results for Longmoor! The children can be proud of themselves and how well they represented school. Well done. A big thank you to all the parents and carers who came along to walk the children to the event and support the children, we really couldn’t have done it without you.
