Cross Country is a sport event that involves long distance running. You are given a specific place to run in Cross Country. Our Senior Syndicate route went up Castledine Crescent, up Apirana Avenue around Cintra Place and back down to Castledine Crescent.
All of Saint Pius students had to gather in the tennis courts. The senior syndicate were told to line up in their age groups starting from 8 to 13 years old. We were separated into lines and everyone was involved.
Cross Country only happens once a year at St Pius. My year group was the 11 years olds. Like some other seniors the 11 to 13 year olds had to run twice and others did the run once,
the day ended with the Junior Syndicate having their run on the field.
The school bell rang and everyone got into their lines ready to go back into class. The races made everyone tired and exhausted. It was a fun day full of hard work running around the neighbourhood.
