Cross Country

This week our year 4-8 students represented Kumara School at the Midland Line Cross Country. There were four other schools there too.  Kumara School students represented us really well and ran to the best of their ability.

The event was held at the Kumara race course, which is famous for its family race day held each year in January.  The race course is also where the Coast to Coast bases itself in February of each year.
The rest of the year the race course is home to a herd of cows, which made for an interesting Cross Country as we had to avoid the surprises the cows left behind for us.  Some students lost their shoes in the mud and had to retrieve them in mud as deep as their elbows.

Two of our students stood out in the races, with Carlos and Autumn qualifying to represent the Midland Line Schools at the West Coast Cross Country event next week.  Congratulations to them. As the event will be held back at Kumara race course they will have the challenge of dodging the cow's warm deposits again.

  4. Hi my name is John, i am a student from wesley primary school. I really like your cross country poster. It made me think of when i did the fun run (cross country) last friday week 6 term 2. I just wanted to ask you a question is your school (Kumara school) a primary and intermediate school? Maybe next time you could take a photo of the track and tell us how long the track was for example 200 metres long.

  27. WOW Room 1, you have a LOT of comments on your post :-) It is great to see your Tuhi mai Tuhi Atu buddies leaving you good quality comments. It sounds like your cross country run was lots of fun and VERY muddy! It's hard to imagine mud up to your elbows! No wonder you lost your shoes! I have done the Tough Guy/Tough Girl event in Auckland, it is a mud run that they hold in different parts of NZ. There was LOTS of slushy mud and deep mud too. We had to use tape to tape our shoes on so we wouldn't lose them. Well done Carlos and Autumn for doing so well and I hope your next run went well. Did you do lots of training for the cross country?

  28. Kia Ora Room 1 Kumara School we are a Year 1 to 4 class at Waima in the Hokianga loved hearing about your cross country. It must be a treat running on the race course. Our children get to run through the paddocks and along the road. Some years our seniors have had to cross a creek. Our cross country is next Thursday. Check out our blog.
