Strandites Shine in Borough Cross Country
On Wednesday, Strand took part in the cross country Championships at Osterley Park. Thirteen children from Years 4-6, who had impressed us with their long distance running in the Mini Marathon, were chosen to represent. Children in Year 3/4 ran 1km while those in Year 5/6 ran 1.6km. For the boys races, well over 150 children were running and for the girls nearly 100! Incredibly, out of the hundreds of children competing, Hannah in Year 4 and Sofia in Year 6 both came 1st in their races meaning that between them they won every girls race in the borough. Hattie was close behind them coming in 3rd place! For the boys, Sebastian in Year 5 came an impressive 5th place and Daniel in Year 6 10th. The rest of our runners almost all came within the top 100. Because of their outstanding achievements and being in Year 6, Sofia and Daniel have been put forward to represent Hounslow in the London Youth Games cross country event later this month. We are all so proud and impressed with all the children and their efforts. Well done to Tyler, Halel, Iaroslav, Hannah, Hattie, Alma, David A, Jack, Sebastian, Bohdan, Sofia, Daniel and Marlowe.
