Twenty of our young athletes competed in the Cross Country race at Bundoora Park last Tuesday. The long 3km race is a difficult task to complete at any time of the year, so to attempt it whilst fasting is a great achievement in itself.
Not only does this show the resilience of our students, but it shows their appetite for success and confidence in their own ability. Two of our students – Karim and Amira – placed in the top 20 in each of their races. Well done to all students that participated, and we hope to have more students place in the coming events.
Keep active, eat well and remember; fitness is not only good for the physical health of the body, it is very important for our emotional, social, and mental health!
