College Cross Country - Thursday, 13 August
Our annual College Cross Country has been re-scheduled for Thursday of this week (13 August) for all of our students from Prep through to Year 12.
The Cross County will take place at our Middle and Secondary Campus. Primary School children will be bused from the Primary Campus on the College buses and will return as their events finish (a program will be available soon once times have been confirmed). Please ensure that your child goes to their class first so that all children are accounted for that day. Middle and Secondary School students will meet in their House meeting areas before proceeding to the Oval.
Due to current social distancing guidelines, parents will be unable to attend this event, however photo and video highlights will be available to help celebrate moments throughout the day for parents.
