There was no stopping Tūhono when it came to the annual Cross Country build up this year. We trialled a few training regimes and reflected on these in terms of fun, physical and emotional benefits. Students in the end made an informed choice as to what their needs were for the type of training they wanted to participate in. This helped everyone succeed in this are of Physical Education that can quite often be the most dreaded!! We had runners tackling the hill once, twice, even three times each day as their challenge, others training in peers and maintaining physical fitness through dance and skipping.
Cross Country day came and Tūhono were given the choice of what events they entered into. It was really encouraging to see so many students participate in the individual competitive races because they knew that it was challenging them and maybe taking them out of their comfort zone. They should all be very proud of themselves in their achievements and attitudes towards this event.
Also a big tino pai to those who represented us at the New Plymouth Cross Country today. We are looking forward to hearing reports back of how much fun they had taking on another personal challenge.
