TIME:           10.00 am to 2.00 pm (approximately)

VENUE:        Alex Moore Park



This year the school cross country will be held at Alex Moore Park. We encourage all parents and whanau to come and support the students, bring a picnic lunch and get involved in the fun activities offered throughout the day.


To ensure the smooth running of this we will be needing parents to volunteer to help walk students to and from the event, as well as a number of parents to assist with a range of tasks during the event.


Each year group will run separately and once their run is completed will have the opportunity to compete in some fun games held on the field, support the other runners as spectators, and have a picnic lunch at the field during the day.


Your child will need to be in class by 9am in sports shoes and appropriate sportswear. Please send your child with their bag, lunch box, warm clothing, hat, and water bottle. This year we will also be introducing Team colours to encourage team/school spirit within the school. Please see the different colours below and encourage your child to think of a way to show their team colours for example a coloured t-shirt, ribbon, or face paint.


Team Totara (Rooms 1, 2, 3, 18) : Blue

Team Miro (Rooms 4, 5, 6 ) : Yellow

Team Matai (Rooms 7, 8, 9) : Green

Team Rimu (Rooms 10, 16, 17): Orange

Team Kahikatea (Rooms 11, 12, 13, 14, 15) : Red


If you would like to come and watch your child compete in their race, races will be starting at 10am. The Year 1’s will race first, followed by the Year 2’s, 3’s, and 4’s. We will then stop at 12pm for lunch. At 12.30 the Year 5’s will race, followed by the Year 6’s. We aim to walk back to school at 2pm. Please note that this is a rough guide only, and times may change on the day.
