Golden Sands School Non-Competitive Fun Cross Country
Thursday 27th June 2019

What an awesome fun day this was!  It was fantastic to see everyone dressed in their Whanau Group Colours and supporting each other in their groups, and running as many laps of our fun course as they could.
Great to see so many parents here joining in the fun, dressing up, and running with the children also.
The Whanau Group Chants were amazing!
A special thanks to Holland Beckett Law Firm for sending us the BOP Steamers Players for the afternoon to join in our event and judge the Chant competition.
Thank you to everyone who helped out to make the event such a success.
