Cross Country

We have had a fantastic and very busy start with our sporting events. On Tuesday 26th September, Shelley College hosted the KS1 and EYFS cross-country races and we were thrilled to have over 20 children attend. Our youngest children really set a high standard for our school and this was matched by KS2 on Thursday 28th September. For the first time, we had six children qualify for the next stage at Newsome Academy on Monday 2nd October. Despite the drizzle, our six Scissett Stars raced brilliantly, all finishing within the top 15 of their races – another first for us! We also had three top five finishers in Maisie, Betsy and Henry, all of whom will progress to the Kirklees final. We really are so proud of all the children for taking part in the cross-country events and wish our Kirklees finalists the best of luck.
