On Thursday June 25th, a warm but overcast day, all the Regents Primary students and staff left classrooms, corridors and offices for the afternoon to take part in what has become a very popular and hard-fought annual event – the Regents Race. This not a race for the faint-hearted as it takes competitors through the countryside around the school for a 3 km experience. Runners tackle slippery sand, rough rocks, solid cement and weave between scratchy bushes. In true Regents style, however, always remembering that, ‘There is more in you than you think’, (Kurt Hahn), our children are up for the challenge and take part with the will to do the very best that they can.
Even our youngest students have the opportunity to face and overcome challenge as they tackle the obstacle course on the Oval, endeavouring to complete the course as many times as they can.
Congratulations to all the students, staff and parents who take part in the Regents Race last year – see you out there again next June.
And the winners are:
