Bayside District Primary Schools Sports Association Cross Country Running Championship

​On Friday, 20 May, over 70 students from Minimbah travelled to the Senior Campus to compete in the annual Bayside District Cross Country Running event. In still, cloudy, and ideal running conditions, they ran on a course that winds its way around the Wildlife Nature Reserve in the top paddocks behind Cruden Oval.

Competing with over 500 students from 11 other schools, our students produced a sensational team effort, winning the Division 2 Junior Shield,Senior Shield, and the Combined Team Championship Shield.

The team was very well led by a large group of Year 6 students nominated as Team Leaders for this physically demanding event and the many training sessions in the weeks leading up to the championship.

Final scores for the Division 2 Championship were –

1st : Woodleigh School – 658

2nd : Frankston East PS – 1004

3rd : Karingal PS - 1230

4th : Ballam Park PS -1296

5th : St Francis Xavier PS - 1630

6th : Karingal Heights PS - 1913

Congratulations to all team members and, in particular, to the following students who have now qualified to run in the Northern Peninsula Division Championships at the Hastings Foreshore Reserve on Wednesday, 31 May, by placing in the top 10 at the District Championships. The whole school community congratulate them on outstanding personal achievements and wishes them well in their endeavours. Well done!
