Inter Primary champion school of 2018, the Charlestown Primary School, fittingly started the ball a rolling for the athletic term 2019, when they hosted their second annual cross country road relay, on Thursday 17th January.
According to Coach Queeley, the athletes ran in the following categories:
Kindergarten to grade two; grades 3 and 4 and then grades five and six.
The route used is the same route that will be used for their regular cross country runs but this one was dissected into segments, as various baton stations were established on the route.
The parents; siblings, other family members and general supporters of the school, showed up in their numbers and created quite a din, as they vocally showed their support for their various houses and/or family members.
At the end of the six races, the results were as follows:
Infant girls- K-2
