St Piran's hosts inter-school cross-country tournament

A cross country competition was enjoyed by 140 pupils from across Maidenhead.



Years three and four pupils from seven Maidenhead primary schools attended St Piran's school in Gringer Hill for the event held on Thursday, May 1.

A total of 18 primary schools were invited overall.

Schools that took part included boys and girls from Cookham Dean CE Primary School, Holyport Primary School, Courthouse Junior School and Oldfield Primary School.

Each pupil ran 1,500 metres, which took them around two laps of the St Piran's grounds.

They competed in separate boys and girls races depending on their year group.

Head of St Piran's boys' PE Mike Smith, who helped organise the event partly because some Maidenhead schools do not have enough land to carry out the sport, was happy to see it so well received.

He said: "There was a whole mixture of ability but it didn't matter because it was just for fun."
