This year our 5th Annual Cross Country Run on the 9 March 2017, started in Sembawang Park. The race took participants into the private estate of colonial houses, out to Admiralty Road East before turning into Sembawang Road and back to the park, ending about 100m from the start point. The female participants ran a distance of 3 km whilst the male runners covered a slightly longer route of 3.3 km.  

More than 1200 participants, consisted of B division (boys / girls), C division (boys / girls) and staff/ PSG/ alumni categories, took part in our cross country event.

To many of us, completing a cross country run is never easy, but the entire experience was definitely more uplifting with a great weather in the morning. 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. In the staff/PSG race, Ms Shariza, Ms Sherlene and Ms Rena clinched the top 3 positions for the ladies category; Mr Flavian, Mr Eugene and Mr Fariz clinched the top 3 position for the men category. And topping it off, the English Department won the trophy for the “Best Department Challenge”.
