In our very first Interschool Cross Country Carnival North Perth Primary School was represented by 35 of our Year 3-6 students. The event was held at Charles Veryard Reserve, with a total of seven schools competing from our sporting cluster of schools.

Our students performed extremely well in a strong competition, with all competitors lifting for their school and fellow team mates contributing to a fantastic result. Due to their efforts, North Perth Primary School finished first overall to win the shield for the very first time. The results were as follows:

1st Place                North Perth Primary School                        947 points

2nd Place               Kyilla Primary School                                   768 points

3rd Place               Tuart Hill Primary School                            716 points

4th Place               Camboon Primary School                             670 points

6th Place               Sutherland Dianella Primary School          651 points
