Essex Schools Cross Country Championships

Congratulations to Khai for winning her age group race and to Lila for coming 5th. They are both into the next round.

Victory For Our Endurance Runners!

What a week! On Wednesday 21st November we entered our first teams in the North West Essex School Sports Association District Cross Country Running Event at the Great Notley Discovery Centre. We entered pupils in Year 7, 8, 9 and 10. On the day Lila won the race for the Year 7 girls and Khai won overall. This was a fantastic result especially given it was the first time we had entered.

And then this Wednesday, we sent a team of Year 7s and 8s to the Cut Hedge Cross Country Event at Gosfield School. Expectations were high and we were not disappointed.

Khai won again and Lila came in 6th but best of all, overall, the girls’ team won the Silver Medal; they came second out of all the schools who entered.

Thank you to Sally and all the other parents who helped this happen. The Christian School (Takeley) is on the endurance running map!
