Last week our Elementary School participated in our first-ever “virtual” Cross Country Meet. This year's event was held at the Camp Hill Cemetery, and all of our Grade 3-6 students participated, putting in a good effort and finishing with a smile on their faces.
Having an annual cross country event is important for our students, as it provides an early opportunity to take part in a "competitive" athletic event, and to experience the highs and lows of competition. In the long run, sporting events like these play an important role in helping students develop resiliency and self-regulation skills, as well as goal-setting, growth mindset, and sportsmanship.
Big thanks to Mr. B and Mr. G for organizing and running the event, and for their ongoing dedication to keeping our students active and healthy.
