…and they’re off

The cows were kept well out of the way, and only a few pukeko were surprised to see most of Gordonton School turn up for the annual cross-country run today.

The conditions were a little soft under foot after the wintery blast of the day before but the sun shone in a clear blue sky. 

The students ran like the wind – and Number 8 Network braved the chill to grab a few pics.

Results coming soon.

Wait for it…

Everyone needs cheering on, and the nearby child centre was happy to help out:

Number 8 Network reckons we need a cup of tea after watching all that running.  Well done everyone!
