Cross Country Event


It was wonderful to see so many Underwood children taking part in this year’s District Cross Country event at Florence Nightingale Academy!

The children had to complete a challenging 1.5km course around Coronation Park; there were approximately 75 children in each race!

They showed amazing determination to not only finish the event but also to finish it so well: the girls did very well indeed and came second out of the 15 schools that took part – they missed out on first place by just two points!

The boys put in an extraordinary performance themselves – Harrison A in Year 4 came first and Isaac S came second and received medals for being podium finishers. Their efforts, combined with the wonderful runs from so many of the Underwood boys led to them being placed first out of the 15 schools and Harrison and Isaac collected the boys’ trophy!
