Kent County Cross Country Event 2018

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.
