Cross Country

Union Preparatory School’s 2019 cross country event was held with great success yesterday morning, Friday, 6 September.

This annual competition allows the learners to engage in friendly competition while also encouraging an interest in cross country and track.

The learners have to complete a long-distance course over various terrains, and while it is no easy task for these little learners to run such a demanding course, they successfully accomplished it with pride, grinning from ear to ear while crossing the finish line.

It was a really heart-warming scene to see the whole school actively participating in this event, especially the graduating batch of Grade 4s who participated in their very last cross country event at UPS.

β€œIt’s so exciting to see this event continue to reach so many learners year after year, encouraging a habit of physical activity,” said Grade 2 teacher, Mrs Natasha Burger.
