YEAR 11 SPORTS LEADERS PRAISED FOR SUCCESS OF PRIMARY CROSS COUNTRY
Richmond School hosted a key stage 2 cross country competition which saw 33 local Primary Schools attend, equating to approximately 950 pupils running around our challenging course.
The event was supported by our Year 11 Sports Leaders who had to independently manage groups of up to 300 pupils in the warm-up area and take charge of excited pupils at the starting point to begin the race safely and efficiently. They also managed the finish line to ensure all pupils’ finishing positions were recorded correctly and pupils were celebrated as they crossed the line, as well as marshal and hare the event to ensure all pupils knew where to run.
The event was a huge success which is largely down to the effectiveness of our Sports Leaders who were so encouraging and supportive. The top 10 pupils from each race category progress to a North Yorkshire county final on Thursday, 10th November at Giggleswick School.
