The North Coast Sports Association Inter School Cross Country Event

This event was held on Friday 17th May at Lennox Head and involves all the Independent private schools from Tweed Heads to Coffs Harbour. Cool weather with a little bit of drizzle set the scene for a magnificent day where over 30 students from our school competed against some of the biggest schools and best runners in the Northern Rivers Region. Our primary school came 5th place overall. This is made even more impressive as we do not send our year 4s and 3s to this event so our team is considerably smaller than the other schools. The high school was low on numbers this year and our results were not as high as we have done in the past.
Four of our students earned an invitation to represent the NCIS at the CIS state championships at Eastern Creek in Sydney on the 17th June and many others were placed in the top 15 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.

Kaden Ellyard 6th, Hugh Bishop 5th, Jasmine Ruthven 4th, Asher Clarke 9th and Hannah Murray 8th. Have all been invited to represent NCIS at the CIS championships in Sydney on the 17th June. We wish these students well at this event.
