On Wednesday 16 of November 2016, Year 7, 8 and 9 girls and boys attended the District Cross Country Competition at The Discovery Centre in Braintree.
I marshalled and it was really exciting to witness everyone’s red faces, enthusiasm and good spirit whatever they achieved. Everyone came in very respectable places and tried their best. Out of the 11 schools that competed, Year 7 boys finished 2nd in the team event and Year 7 girls finished 8th. Year 8 and 9 boys finished 4th and 8 and 9 girls finished 7th. Jake Miller did especially well and came 1st for his category and was awarded with a medal. He has now been asked to represent Essex at the cross country championships in January. It was an amazing experience to witness, despite the challenging course, everyone worked very hard to successfully finish the race and made The Ramsey Academy, Halstead very proud. Well done everyone!
