Cross-Country Event

 Fifty children from Bourne Abbey C of E Primary Academy recently took part in the South East Lincolnshire Cross Country Championships on Tuesday 6th October 2015.  It was a beautiful autumnal day and the children were very excited and looking forward to competing. 

For the majority of our Year 3 and 4 children this was their first cross country run and a lot of them were feeling very nervous.  Despite these nerves the children showed real determination and commitment and put in some fantastic individual performances.  This was a team event with the positions of the top 7 runners being taken into account.

All of our teams did fantastically well.  Our Year 4 boys team and Year 5 and 6 girls teams both finished in 2nd position and came away with silver medals.  Our Year 4 girls team and Year 5 and 6 boys teams finishing in 3rd place, winning bronze medals.

Congratulations to all those children who took part and represented Bourne Abbey with such fantastic performance.
