Mount Isa District Cross Country

On 28 April 2016, 25 students from our school travelled to Happy Valley State School to compete at the Mount Isa Schools District Cross Country. I was very proud of how well our students represented Barkly Highway State School on the day. Not only were our students wearing the school uniform proudly and behaving very well, but our performance on the track was excellent. Individually, 7 of our runners finished in the top 3 in their respective events:
Patrick 1st,  Arjuna 2nd, Ethan 3rd, Tom N 2nd, Maddison 2nd, TJ 2nd and Hayden 2nd.
Our 10 years boys’ team of Patrick, Arjuna, Ethan and Cooper won the team competition for their division. Our 12 years boys’ team of TJ, Hayden, Tom B and Brodie won their age division as well.
Finally, with such strong results by our students it was no surprise that Barkly Highway State School were crowned the champion overall school for the day, and our School Captain Hayden was on hand to collect the trophy. What a great day for our school and congratulations to all members of this team.
