Cross-Country is a winter sport and it is compulsory for all students to compete in the school cross country. Term 2 is when the school holds their own Cross Country Championship. The cross country course is held on school grounds.
Following on from our School Cross Country is the Selwyn Central Zone Cross Country Championships. For students to qualify for Zones they need to run within a certain time.
If students finish in the top 12 at the Zones event, they qualify for the Canterbury Championships.
