Giving it a go takes courage

The House Cross Country is perhaps the most physically demanding activity the Junior School boys undertake during the year. Although we celebrate our best runners, the focus of the event is on everyone ‘giving it a go’.

Every boy from Prep to Year 6 is encouraged to run the course and the effort the boys make is a great source of pride.

Over the last three years, the distance for all year levels has increased, requiring the boys not only to train harder, but also to build their determination and resilience.

It is inspiring to stand on the 2.2km course during the Year 6 race and see every boy running, and living out the Junior School House events mantra: You don’t have to be the best, you just have to give your best.
