WGS 4th Annual Cross Country Run 2016
Tired, happy faces dotted the finish line of the school’s 4th Annual Cross Country Run on 4th March 2016, which took place along the Woodlands Avenue 12 park connector. The race, which had more than 1200 participants, consisted of ‘B’ division (boys / girls), ‘C’ division (boys / girls) and staff/PSG/alumni categories. Each participant had to complete a distance of 3.88km.
Running a marathon is never easy, but the entire experience was definitely more uplifting with a great atmosphere. Having friends start the race together and end the run in celebration definitely contributed to a positive race experience.
Many of the participants enjoyed the race as it was a time for them to compete as a class and strive to win the Best Class Challenge Trophy. Amongst the staff/PSG/alumni, Ms Charlene Tan, Ms Chong Pei Fen, Mr Haqif as well as Mr Flavian crossed the finish line strongly to clinch the top 2 positions for their categories. On top of that, the Science department gave Humanities department a good fight and regained the trophy for the “Best Department Challenge”.
