Lorne P-12 College House Cross Country

Dear Parents/Carers,

Lorne P-12 College House Cross Country Event will be held on Wednesday 9th May 2018 on the Lorne Foreshore, with students from Yr 3- 12 participating in their age group levels for the house competition. P-2 will participate in a shorter fun course.

Parents are invited to come down and see the students run the course, which for the seniors will extend to Erskine River and back to the surf club. Distances are modified according to age levels, but finish and presentation is expected to occur around 12 – 12:15pm on the grassed foreshore between the pool and surf club.

Distances:

P-2   Fun course                                                           1.5km

9-12yrs ( Yr 3 – 6)                                                        2.5km

13-20yrs Full course (Yr 7 – 12)                                   3.5km

All students will receive a house point for participation.

Students must wear full sport uniforms or appropriate running gear in house colours for this event. Students who are not in sports uniform or house colours on the day will be asked to attend a lunchtime rerun on Friday 11th May in their full sports uniform on the oval at school.

Students who are unable to compete need to provide a note from their parents/carers explaining the medical reason for not running and are encouraged to wear house colours and assist the age groups leaders in the event.

Students will need to bring sports uniform, hats, sunscreen and water bottles and prepare themselves with a good breakfast to give them energy for the race.

We would be very appreciative to have parents helpers to assist with the P-6 age groups so if you can assist, please let the office know.

If you have any questions feel free to contact Amy Lane at school of 52891585
