Primary 5 pupils completed their Half Marathon of 13.1 miles on what turned out to be a very pleasant Friday afternoon. A total of 40 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. Mrs Geddis, one of our Board of Governors (and parent) presented each runner with a medal and certificate. Each child also received a pack kindly sponsored by Tesco, Craigavon and Intersport, Rushmere Shopping Centre. A huge thank you also goes to Intersport for sponsoring vouchers for 3 very fortunate runners! All names were placed into a hat and a draw was made after the Certificate ceremony!
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. Take a look through the gallery below, thank you to Mrs Peacocke for being our photographer:
