District Cross Country – Friday 10th May – Belair National Park

Craigburn has a large number of students who each year train in preparation to participate in the District Cross Country event at Belair National Park. Trainings begin in Term 1 twice a week, stepping up to 3 times a week if possible closer to the event. For the past 8 years we have had a parent Stuart Knuckey train the students but unfortunately he no longer has children at the school. We are in need of a parent or two to take on this volunteer role of training the students in preparation. Previously trainings have been after school for 30mins. If you are interested in assisting please see Karen at school or email karen.pettman675@schools.sa.edu
