Bowraville Central School students take on annual Cross Country challenge

Bowraville Central School students ready to compete in the annual Cross Country event.


BOWRAVILLE Central students spent an afternoon running up hill and down dale recently, over muddy holes and around beautiful golfing greens in valiant attempts to finish the annual School Cross Country.

Megan Cochrane, Community Liaison Officer, Bowraville Central School, said the young runners handled the wet conditions well.

“Luckily the sun was shining and the muddy holes weren’t too deep.

“The Bowraville golf course and the nearby ‘Townley’ farm provided the perfect ‘cross country’ terrain for budding runners,” she said.

Kindergarten students commenced the day with a fun run around the Golf Course.

The serious competitors followed with Primary School students (eight years and up) right through to the Senior Secondary students in Year 12.

The students ran in age groups around the Golf Course and through cow paddocks completing a three kilometre run.

“Runners maintained smiles and great sportsmanship often encouraging each other over the line,” said Megan.

There is more to come for a handful of local runners, with Levi Welch and Tarren Jarrett progressing to the Zone Cross Country Carnival in the Boys Under 13’s while Clayton Hoffman progressed through in the Under 12’s.


Big smiles and fierce competition as the BCS girls take on the muddy track.
