Monday 4th February 2018 - MPSSA Cross Country
On Monday the 4th February, Mr Austin, Mrs Sweeting and 20 KS2 children went to a cold, windy, muddy and hilly cross country event at Hughenden Manor. After a jog round the track, we knew where we were going and were ready to race! There were 4 different races: year 3/4 boys, year 3/4 girls, year 5/6 boys, year 5/6 girls. Every single child tried their hardest and showed a real growth mindset, especially when running up the steep hill halfway round. After all was said and done, Great Missenden School won both the girls overall trophy and the boys overall trophy! Every child contributed to this win, showing real desire and commitment to represent the school, not giving up in tricky conditions. A huge well done to everyone involved, you should be immensely proud!
Hervines Park Cross Country - Saturday 27th January 2018
Hervines Park was exactly as the organisers said it would be, muddy! We had 34 children participating in the event to represent our school, who all showed their determination to support their peers and challenge themselves. The cold and damp weather clearly did not impact our runners, as they all displayed their growth mindset from the start line through to crossing the finish line, even supporting each other during the event! In the team trophies, Year 6 Girls achieved a bronze medal! It is all about the taking part as all the children were fantastic and a huge well done to everyone!
