Erewash Cross Country Event at Wilsthorpe Secondary School

On Thursday 6th October Mr Bunhejee and Mrs Dainty were lucky enough to be able to take 24 children to the Erewash School Sports Partnership Cross Country event at Wilsthorpe Secondary School. The team had been practising for the last two weeks, with Mr Bunhejee at dinner times, and were excited to finally get to race against other schools. The first race was the Y5/6’s racing over a distance of ¾ of a mile against 32 other children. The team did really well and finished 4th 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 coming 2nd overall. Finally came the infant race with nearly 100 children, but running at the front were the children of Longmoor who managed to earn the team another 2nd place finish after some fine sprints to the line over the ¼ of a mile course. Three fantastic results for Longmoor! The children can be proud of themselves and how well they represented school. To top it off we were awarded the sportsmanship award for competing so well and supporting other children in the races! 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.
