Cross Country News

Congratulations and well done to all the students who attended and represented Fawkner Primary School at the Glenroy District Cross Country event on Thursday 25th May. Our school competed with 10 other schools on the day.

Students who participated in this event were:

Jaffer Zein Sabin
Ali K Fatima Saheenar
Abdulrahman Portia Azka
Saleh Aqsa Ahsan Mahmoud
Jack Hamza Raees
Ali M Ali T Mustafa
Jude Kiara Talha


During the event many of our students ran massive personal bests over a tough course. It was pleasing to see that most of our students stuck to our race plan of cruising out strongly during the first half and running faster in the second half.

The bravery award this year goes to Portia for running courageously with a painful stomach stitch. It was a happy ending when mum gave her a massive hug at the end of the race.

A big thank you to Rob and Frances who attended and helped out during the day.
