Every week we endeavour to include as many of our students achievements that we hear or read about. If your child is not mentioned from events where many of our students are involved in please email me and I will include their results the following week. Essington Representative Teams Cross Country The cooler weather resulted in some very fast times last week for both the 10 & Under 2km runners and the older 3km participants. Two hundred participants again last week helped to boost their school point totals. Next week is the final week with the individual ribbon run followed by presentation of shields and trophies to the first, second and third placed schools. Nakara topped the points score this week with 53 points, closely contested by Essington with 48 points and Parap with 40 points. Parap and Good Shepherd Middle School were the strongest bonus scoring schools with 27 points each. There are some clear favourites to take out the overall points competition in both Primary and Middle School divisions while the Handicap result will go down to the wire. Participants wishing to nominate for selection in the City Cross Country Representative teams as part of the Cluster Athletics team to compete in August at the School Sport NT Championships should collect a nomination form from the table or from the sports coordinator at their school and return it to the cluster office at Millner.
