On Saturday 30 March, Annabella in Year 4 took part in the ISA National Cross Country Championships at Rugby School, Warwickshire. She was representing not only Oaklands School, but London North against six other ISA regions. On arrival, she was greeted with beautiful sunshine and a pristine course on which to run.
After a long wait for her race, Annabella was finally ready at the start line, jostling with the other girls for a good position. She held the lead in the early stages of the race, maintained a good position throughout, and came in with a strong finish to be placed 7th, which is a remarkable achievement. The top 10 finishers all received an ‘outstanding achievement’ certificate for their efforts. Well done Annabella.
A special thank you to her Dad and sister Cleo who supported her on the day.
