On Saturday 17th November 5 pupils from Great Chart participated in the Kent County Cross Country finals at the Detling Showground. It was an enormous event with over 1400 children from 90 Kent Junior Schools competing. The course was tough with long, wet grass and a steep hill to contend with.
The children showed great resilience, strength and talent as they competed with the best in Kent and had some amazing results. In each event there were about 170 pupils so competition was fierce:
Oscar – Year 3 boys was 9th place
Willow – Year 3 girls was 49th place
Jack –Year 4 boys was 39th place
Aki – Year 4 girls was 2nd place
Tom – Year 6 boys was 5th place and qualified on for National trials.
An amazing performance from them all. We celebrated their success in assembly too.
