Dear Parents, It is that time of the year again, that's right you guessed it.... Our Prep - grade 6 School Cross Country will be held on Wednesday 21st March 2018 on the Lara Primary School oval.
We would love to see as many parents as possible supporting the students and would appreciate any help you can provide manning the circuit (please see your child's teacher if you have a current Working With Children's Check and can help out on the day!). The timetable for the day is as follows: o9:15 - Staggered start 8/9&10 years Girls/Boys (1 lap of circuit = approx 1.4 kms) o9:35 - Staggered start 11 years Girls/Boys (2 laps of circuit = approx 2.8 kms) o9:55 - Staggered start 12/13 years Girls/Boys (2 laps of circuit = approx 2.8 kms) o10:30 - Start Grade 2's Girls/Boys (1 lap of oval = 500m) o10:40 - Start Grade 1's Girls/Boys (1/2 lap of oval = 250m) o10:50 - Start Preps Girls/Boys (1/4 lap of oval = 125m) o11:30 - Hall - Announcement of results

All students who participate themselves and encourage others on the day will receive extra points towards their house. A shield will be awarded to the winning house once all points have been tallied. Students who finish in the top 6 (4 to go through with 2 emergencies) in their age group (9 - 13 year olds) will have the opportunity to represent Lara Primary School in the District Cross Country event held in Term 2.
If you have any questions, please see your child's teacher.
