Great North Run 2018

It was fantastic to hear of so many of our boys taking part in last weekend’s Great North Run.

Congratulations also go to all of the boys who took part in the Junior Great North Run last weekend, including Tom S (Year 8, pictured) who won the Years 7 and 8 race, Cas C (Year 7) who ran for St. Oswald’s Hospice, Harvey G (Year 8, pictured) who also successfully completed the race, Thomas N (Year 9, pictured) who ran for the 12th time and Adam R (Year 8, pictured) who ran for the Great North Children’s Hospital straight after his Under 13’s rugby fixture that morning.

There were also a number of junior boys who took part including Folu E (Year 6) who finished a particularly impressive 17th place in his age category. Other boys to have completed it include Alex B (Year 5), Rob C (Year 3), Tobi E (Year 1), Thomas H (Year 3), Archie M (Year 6, 59th place), Alex (Year 4) and M (Year 2), and Charlie (Year 2) and Oliver W (Year 4).

Also, a further congratulations to Mrs Cheng and Mr Clark, who both completed the Great North Run on Sunday in what were particularly warm conditions.  Both teachers were running in support of very worthy charities, with Mrs Cheng supporting Mind and Mr Clark raising funds for Newcastle Dog and Cat shelter.
