Crystal Palace Cross Country Event

Small schools Cross Country Winners!

St Nick's retained their small schools' x-country trophy at Crystal Palace on Saturday, with over 60 children turning out to compete on a mild and sunny day. Every single child that ran made the school proud, but particular highlights included finishing 2nd overall in the Year 3 girls' category, as well as 5th overall in both the Year 3 boys' and Year 5/6 boys' category. There were plenty of great individual performances, one of which was a 3rd place medal finish for Christian Pauling in the Boys 5/6 race, one that had over 500 participants. Perhaps the best moment of the day however, featured Sevina stopping mid-race to go back and assist Saron who had hurt her leg. Savon was able to continue running and both finished the race with big smiles. A true example of endurance and friendship!
