On Saturday 18th January, the Kent Schools Cross Country Championships took place at The Duke of York’s Royal Military School in Dover. Three of our pupils qualified for these championships: Archie Burden (First Form), Edward Dyer (First Form) and Saffron Roberts (First Form). Read Archie’s account of the day below:
“We arrived at the school on a beautiful, sunny but chilly morning, perfect for running. The cross-country course was over good ground, not too much mud and with some nice hills! Saffie ran first in the Year 7 girls’ 2.5km race, finishing 107th. She ran really well, especially as this was only her third race. Ed and I ran the Year 7 boys’ 3km race. Ed came 38th and I came 28th. Everyone made a huge effort and we were all proud to have taken part in the race, representing SVS. Congratulations!”
Great account Archie, we are very proud of you all.
