Challenge run stars!

Not content with completing a Duathlon yesterday, twenty eight year Year 5 and 6 children went straight to Joseph Hood recreation ground to take part in the annual Merton Schools' Challenge run. With 25 school taking part there were over 170 children in each race. We were very proud with the determination and perseverance shown by all our children to complete the mile long course and we want to thank them for their efforts.

A particular mention goes to the year 6 girls' team who finished a brilliant 6th out of the 25 schools. And very special congratulations to Muna, who once again, for the 2nd year running, beat off strong competition to win the year 5 girls race! When you see the scale of this event and the huge number of children taking part, you realise what an amazing achievement this is. Well done Muna!
