On Tuesday 3rd March, Coopersale Hall took part in The Epping & Ongar District Cross Country Races held at Ongar Primary School. The first race was for the Year 5/6 Girls team. The girls ran really well, with Nia 9th and Francesca 12th our first two girls to finish. The second race was for the Year 5/6 Boys over the same distance. Once again the boys ran so well with Benjamin 14th and Jonathan 23rd our first two home. The third race saw the Year 3/4 Girls get their chance to run two laps of the course. First to finish was Chloe in an amazing 4th place, followed by Francesca who is in Year 3 in 14th place.
The final race of the afternoon was for the Year 3/4 Boys, once again over two laps of the course. We had saved the best to last as Oliver ran the race of his life to win on the line. To pick up a gold medal at such a big event is a massive achievement. Oliver you should be so proud of your achievement, we certainly enjoyed cheering you on! Well done to Ewan who finished 8th.
When all the points had been added up we were second in the small schools’ competition. Mr Robinson would like to thank all of the pupils for all their hard work and determination. Also a big thank you to all the parents who turned up to cheer the pupils on.
