On Wednesday 27 January 50 Aloha College students went to Sunland International School in Cártama to take part in the International Schools Cross Country running tournament. This is one of the biggest tournaments of the year involving students from Years 5-13. Each race consisted of up to 100 participants with points being awarded to runners finishing in the top 10 positions. At the end of the day, the school with the most points in all categories was crowned champion. Aloha were awarded the trophy for being champions for the first time ever!
They arrived back at school bearing the trophy that has been won by EIC for the last 10 years. The pupils were a credit to Aloha College. A special mention must go to the following students, who gained medals: Fiorella Santa Cruz (2nd place, U11 Girls), Dean Huijsen (2nd place, U11 Boys), Florence Sargent (2nd place, U13 Girls), Inez Adamovic (3rd place, U15 Girls), Nicolás Arranz (2nd place, U15 Boys), Tommy Tonge (2nd place, U19 Boys) and César Rubio (3rd place, U19 Boys).
A special thanks goes also to their wonderful PE department who just continue to go from strength to strength. They are grateful also to Mr Hunkin, Mrs Elliott and Mr O’Leary for helping train the team. Aloha College has really excelled in its sporting progress over the last 2 years. Wait until they open our new Sports Hall!
