Primary Cross Country


It was in picture perfect conditions that the 2019 CYS Cross Country event was held for our Reception to Year 7 students on Friday May 17th.

The event is held on the Maitland Golf course to the south of Apex house and the Maitland Bowling Club. All students who attended ran the varying courses and earned points for their sports house.

This year it was an Eagles win, 277 points to the Sharks with 209

The event was also used to determine our nominations for the Southern Yorke Peninsula SAPSASA Cross Country team who will compete in Adelaide on June 6th. Students had to meet or better standard and be at least 10 years of age in 2019.

A huge congratulations to all participants and a very big thank you to the wonderful support provided by our wider school community. Events such as this would not be possible without the assistance of so many wonderful volunteers.
