On Friday 21 August a selection of Year 3-6 students, headed to Armadale Primary School to compete in the DDSA Cross Country. There were 5 schools in the competition and Roleystone Community College came in second, closely behind Armadale.
The athletes participated in a gruelling course that saw them run through many rocky puddles, mini streams, up and down slippery rocks and over one person bridges. The students loved the challenge and nothing held them back (not even losing a shoe during the race!).

The list of athletes below who competed, all did an outstanding job and showed excellent physical resilience and sportsmanship.

RCC congratulates them all and we are very, very proud of their efforts.

RCC must thank Miss Jackson and Miss Sutherland who both did an amazing job organising the event and the students on the day and working hard to help train them up prior to the competition.
