Tuesday 12th February was a historic day for the students and teachers at the Cicely Browne Integrated School.
On that day, the school hosted the first ever cross country races, in the history of the institution.
The excited students took to the track, watched by their equally excited parents, other family members and a contingent of students and teachers from the nearby Ivor Walters Primary School, led by Principal Mrs. Janice Richards.
The higher functioning students started their route, immediately below the fencing of the Ivor Walters Primary School and ran down the pathway into the nearby village below the school and then back to the school.
The lower functioning students just ran from one end of the road immediately below their school, to the other.
Some of the parents ran along with their children and the races created much excitement.
When you thought all of the fun was over, some of the teachers and parents took to the track, utilizing the same course as the lower functioning children, cheered on by the obviously elated children.
The top results were as follows:
Higher functioning students-Boys
1st Unique Parris;
2nd Kijaunte Hobson;
3rd Andrew Samuels;
4th Hildreth Tross;
5th Jelani Herbert
Higher functioning –Girls
