Last week Melville Intermediate's Cross Country team competed at Porrit Stadium in the Waikato Inter-Intermediate Cross Country Competition. It was a challenging day for our students highlighted by Blair's 6th place finish and Kaleb from Room 8 making 33rd. It was a wonderful day for the students and Kaleb wrote this report:
The cross country was held at Porrit Stadium on the 21st of August 21, 2009. There was lots of different schools such as Te Awamutu Intermediate , Cambridge Intermediate , Berkley, Peachgrove Intermediate, Fairfield Intermediate and a lot more of them .
I think that it was great work for Melville. We did great work climbing those hills and going through those giant lakes that were up to my knees. It was great fun. I’m really proud of myself and others. I think that Blair did the best because he never gave up even though he had a very sore hamstring he came 6th. I came 33rd it was a great day for us all. It was hard work so it was great fun and we all had a good time.
