Kowhai and Kauri Cross Country

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

The school cross country races for Year 3 – 6 children will be held on Tuesday 29th August (Rain Day 31st August) at Monte Cecilia Park.

The Year 3 and 4 children will run a set course of approximately 1.2 km around the Park, while the Year 5 and 6 children will run a course of 1.75km. The races will be run between approximately 10am and 12:30pm.

Order of Running: Please arrive slightly earlier to ensure you do not miss seeing your child run.

10.00 am: Year 6 girls

10.20 am: Year 6 boys

10.40 am: Year 3 girls

10.50 am: Year 3 boys

11.00 am: Year 4 girls

11.25 am: Year 4 boys

11.50 pm: Year 5 girls

12.15 pm: Year 5 boys

All children should run in their House T-Shirt, school shorts, and suitable shoes (compulsory, no mufti please). The children will need a drink bottle (or two!) ready for when they finish the event.

The team for the zone competition (Year 4-6 only) on 26th September, will be chosen from a training squad selected from this event and from those children who are unable to attend because of illness or injury.

The Year 1 – 2 children will run a course around the school field from 1.30pm so that parents and senior children are also able to watch the races and cheer for their houses.

Parents are welcome to come and watch. Parents are encouraged to walk down to the event with the classes if possible. If necessary, it is recommended that you park on Budock Rd or Korma Rd (near the finish line). We need some help with supervision of the course at turning points. If you can help, please return the slip to your child’s class teacher.


Yours Sincerely,

Brian Keith

Sport Coordinator
