School Event

Whole-school cross country

ACG Tauranga students took part in our annual whole-school cross country event last week.

Students ran between 1 and 3km, depending on their school year, around our hilly gully course.

Older students helped younger ones, giving the event a family feel as students competed for points towards the school House competition.

“It was a great opportunity for students to embrace school spirit, challenge themselves physically and support their House,” said Physical Education teacher and Secondary Sports Coordinator Ben Howell.

Particular mention of our little students who did extremely well in their first race, sometimes running in the wrong direction, but absolutely loving it.

Congratulations to Mauao and Wairoa – joint House winners.

Some students will compete at cluster level, AIMS and Bay Of Plenty Competitions.

It is also a good warm up for the Tough Guy and Gal competitions.

Individual winners:

Secondary girl: Lily McSweeney

Secondary boy: Xavier Maddox

Primary girl: Hadassah Odumosu

Primary boy: Pierre Guitton
