Primary 7 pupils completed their Half Marathon of 13.1 miles today on what was a very warm run! Today saw just over 40 Primary 7 children crossing the finishing line to achieve their Half Marathon Medal. This sees a total of 96 children in Key Stage 2 this year achieving the HM distance and medal. Well done to all!
As this was our Primary 7 group of children, we saw some very strong, impressive running and hope that these young athletes may continue to show an interest in running as they progress to the next stage in their education career.
The pupils ran a celebration mile where parents, grandparents and other spectators were able to join in and support the runners. Mr Gordon, one of our Board of Governors along with Mr McCambley presented each runner with a medal and certificate. Each child also received a pack kindly sponsored by Mr Mark Gordon (Parent & Governor), Elaine Livingstone (Asda) and the House of Sport, Lurgan. Mrs Williamson and Mrs Brown were joined this term by Mrs Peacocke whom has also been of great help to the HM Club. They are all delighted with the children's enthusiasm throughout the 7 week programme and would like to congratulate each child on their Half Marathon achievement.
