The North Coast Sports Association Inter School Cross Country Event

This event was held on Thursday 18th May at Dennison Park in Ballina and involves all the Independent private schools from Tweed Heads to Coffs Harbour. A beautiful day at a picturesque spot set the scene for a magnificent day where over 45 students from our school competed against some of the biggest schools and best runners in the Northern Rivers Region. Unfortunately our year 10 students where on “work experience” and most could not participate in this event, but thanks to a great team effort by the rest of our students, Cape Byron Steiner School came a very impressive 5th place overall. In the primary school division we were able to take out 3rd place despite the fact we only send our year 5 and 6 students to compete in this event. This is a fantastic result!
Eight of our students earned an invitation to represent the NCIS at the CIS state championships at eastern Creek in Sydney on the 15th June and many were placed in the top 10 in their division. All ran with pride and exuberance. Both Lizzie Gavaghan and I were proud and impressed with the student’s performances and behaviour on the day. We both agreed that we would be happy to accompany this group of students to any function. Well done! The following students all received exceptional results in their divisions.

Briana Hart 2nd, Arlo Amos-Eakin 4th, Amit Sonnenfeld 7th, Leila Campbell 5th, Hannah Murray 6th, Yani Murray 4th, Tahlia Van Oostrum 4th, Harper Kelso 3rd, Omri Ben-Harush 3rd.
