Cross Country Finals

On Friday, 28th March, Harry Parker (year 6) attended the Essex Cross Country Championships after finishing first in the Thurrock competition in November.

The year 6 boys’ race featured approximately 150 boys from across Essex, all of whom had finished top in their area competitions.

In an incredible race, Harry finished 1st, crossing the finish line nearly 20m ahead of the second place competitor. Harry was awarded a medal and trophy and earned the title of Essex Cross Country Champion for Year 6 Boys!

Please congratulate Harry on this wonderful accomplishment! We are so proud of his achievement!
