Dressed up in wigs, costumes, funny t-shirts, our team took to the start line ready to finish their season off with a giggle!
It was lovely to see some of our younger students getting involved too, including George from Oak Tree Class.
As the race came to a swirly end, the children gathered in their teams to hear the well-anticipated results of the season, including races 1 - 5.
Awards were given for the top male and female runners, as well as small schools and large school awards.
Silas received the cross country trophy ,as he managed to finished 1st in every race this season apart from one because he was absent. Ewan, one of our youngest runners, also received a medal, as he finished 3rd out of all of the boys. Aaron was also awarded a medal as he came 10th out of all of the boys.
