On Friday 5th October 2018, the Merton KS2 Inclusive Cross-Country Festival took place for students across our four cluster areas with representative schools coming from Wimbledon, Raynes Park, Mitcham and Morden. Thank you to all schools, teachers and supporters for attending today’s festival.  

13 schools attended and each brought a set of excited participants. Aragon, Bishop Gilpin, Cricket Green, Dundonald, Garfield, Links, Lonesome, Poplar, Singlegate, St. John Fisher, St. Mary, St. Matthew, SS Peter and Paul came with runners from years 3, 4, 5 and 6 and took part in the schedule of races: 

Race 1 – Year 3 and 4 Girls 

Race 2 – Year 3 and 4 Boys 

Race 3 – Year 5 and 6 Girls 

Race 4 – Year 5 and 6 Boys 

Participants tried their very hardest around the two laps of Morden Recreation Ground and were cheered and motivated on by the other schools every step of the way. This was especially noticeable when passing the spectator area where the noise and atmosphere was tremendous and so supportive! 

Congratulations to all 13 schools who took away MSSP participation certificates and a special well done to Singlegate School who were nominated by other schools for the REFSPECT Award. Great respect was shown across the whole event including cheering and clapping for other schools, making up supportive songs for the runners and someone even going back to help another runner who was struggling to finish the race. This help and awareness for others is wonderful to see in sport and physical activity.
