The school's cross country carnival will be held on Wednesday 3 May. All students will run with kindy and year 1 students running with 4/5/6 students. Those turning 8 and over in 2017 will run and their races will be timed to allow them to qualify for the South Sydney zone cross country carnival to be held on 24 May. The kinder weather over the holiday should have had a chance to dry the oval out. We hope the rain will hold off until next week.
