Balgowan are CHAMPIONS!! Cross Country Update 2015

On the 14th March 2015 Balgowan Primary School took part in the Bromley Primary Schools Cross Country’s annual event at Crystal Palace Park.

It was a freezing cold, but sunny morning at Crystal Palace but the children turned out in their hundreds. After warming up the girls in years 3 and 4 set off at 9:20 for their race. Eleanor Young and Jessica Matthews set the pace, again. Eleanor finished strongest in 48th with Jessica not far behind. Alexia, who keeps getting better and better, also finished well, in 62nd place.

Next, the year 3 and 4 boys had their turn. Sam, Theo, Jasper, Matthew, and Jacob performed admirably, again. However, this time it was Arthur who stole the limelight, finishing 32nd. The year 3 and 4 boys won the Francis Chappell  team trophy by a clear distance. The second time we have won the shiny, silver cup. Jasper, Matthew and Jacob will be eyeing the 1, 2, 3 next year!

The year 5 and 6 girls also ran superbly. Heidi F (6th) missed out on a medal by one place, Katie S, Katrine R, also finished in the top 40.

Mr consistent, Tom P, finished 2nd. He will no doubt go on to do great things in athletics.


Year 3-4 girls finished 8th

Year 3-4 boys finished 1st

Year 5-6 girls finished 7th.

Year 5-6 boys finished 3rd.

Overall, Balgowan Primary School WON the large schools trophy, the boys from years 3 and 4 won the team trophy.

Thank you to parents and children for coming.
