Essex Schools’ Cross Country competition
On Saturday, Mrs Harris took pupils to the Essex Schools’ Cross Country competition, Matt (Year 10) represented both Sweyne Park and Castle Point and Rochford, running with the very best Year 10 and Year 11 boys in Essex.
The bad weather meant that it was too dangerous to run in the woods as planned, and so the competitors endured a repetitive and very hilly run of 5 laps. Matt ran incredibly well and did himself and Sweyne Park proud, coming 37th out of 100. Matt was one of the youngest boys in the competition and will now be well prepared for next year’s race when he will compete in the same age category. This will make a real positive impact on Matt’s GCSE PE grading.
We are extremely proud of Matt and send him our huge congratulations on a fantastic achievement!
