Due to COVID restrictions, schools will not be gathering this year for the annual Skye Schools’ Cross Country Championship. However, High Life Highland have set up a virtual Cross Country which Raasay pupils will be taking part in. First of all, pupils had to measure out an appropriate course with 1800m for the P6/7, 1200m for P4/5 and 600m for the younger pupils. They decided on the shore path and measured out the distances using the trundle wheel. Each week, they will be undertaking the course as many times as possible and trying to improve on their own individual timings. There will be certificates for all those taking part and a special prize to the school with the highest percentage of participants. The event runs for the whole of March and we’ll keep you posted as to how we get on!
