Cornwall School Games- Finalists

It was a proud day for these three students from Nansloe who competed at the Cornwall School Games Cross Country Finals last week. To compete at the highest level in Cornwall and all finish inside the top 20 for your age group is a remarkable achievement.

Round 5 Results

Below you will find the results for Round 5 of the cross country season held at Helston School. A number of children from Nansloe were running their 4th and 5th race of the season meaning they are on course to achieve the endurance medal later this year. As always thank you to the parents for transporting the children. 

Magnificent Seven

A big well done to the 7 children from Nansloe who qualified to represent the Helston area at the Peninsula Cross Country Event.

Cross Country will now take a break for the winter and return again in March. Below you can find the results for the last two races and the league table for all of the schools involved. It has been fantastic to see so many children from Nansloe competing and scoring points to the school. We are incredibly proud of all of the runners and particularly those who turn up for each race and are determined to beat their personal best. 
Last Tuesday was the second cross country race of the season hosted by Helston. This event gave the KS1 children an opportunity to have a taste of competitive cross country and hopefully encourage them to take part when they reach Year 3. We had over 35 children take part in the event and as a school scored over 1,200 points which is incredible. It was also fantastic to see so many new faces representing the school for the first time. Below you can find the race positions for the children from Nansloe and the current league table. The next event will be at Porthleven on Tuesday 16th October.
Congratulations to all of the children who took part in the numerous races across the cross country season. As a school we set a new record with 12 children receiving the endurance medal for taking part in 5 or more races. We also had a number of children who finished as a top 3 point scorer for their age group.

Let's see if we can pass that score by getting as many children as possible competing in the final 2 events of the year.

St Michael's School held race 2 for the first time and it turned out to be a tough but enjoyable course. Well done to Tom who finished 4th in the Year 3/4 race and Harry and Josh in the Year 5/6 race who finished 5th and 7th respectively.
