Primary 5 pupils completed their Half Marathon of 13.1 miles on what turned out to be a very pleasant Wednesday afternoon. Approximately 43 Primary 5 children crossed the finishing line to achieve their Half Marathon Medal. All other Primary 5 children supported their peers by marshalling the route and encouraging the runners on their way round. Well done to all!
The celebration mile allowed parents, grandparents and other spectators to join in and support the runners. The PSNI were present, with Constable Anderson and Constable Brown distributing the Race packs to the children crossing the finishing line. Mr Mitchell, our very own P6 teacher (and Glenavon football player) presented each runner with a medal and certificate, alongside Mr McCambley. Our Race packs were very kindly sponsored by Moutrays, PSNI and Intersport, Rushmere Shopping Centre. A special THANK YOU to the PSNI for their kind sponsorship of goodies for our race packs and also for coming along and supporting the Celebration Mile! The children really enjoyed the extra treat of getting to see inside the police car!
Mrs Williamson and Miss McAnearney enjoyed leading the Half Marathon Club this term and have been delighted with the children's enthusiasm throughout the 7 week programme and would like to congratulate each child on their Half Marathon achievement. A huge thank you to our marshalls and also to Miss Duncan for all her assistance on the day. Take a look through the gallery below, thank you to Mrs Peacocke for being our photographer:
