It was a beautiful March morning for our annual Cross Country Carnival. On Wednesday 21 March, all students in NEGS Junior School participated in the event in some form. Transition ran a long race around the oval with Miss Sarah in the lead and K-1 students ran around the whole Junior School. Our 8/9/10 year olds had the challenge of 2km whilst 11/12 year olds came up against the 3km course.

All students tried their very best and congratulations to everyone for the excellent results obtained.
