Grade 1-3 students from Children’s Garden School (at 670 Eglinton Ave. East) competed in their annual Cross Country Championships at Sherwood Park Wednesday. The conditions were perfect. The rain held off and the sun shone through the beautiful fall leaves. The children ran the 1.5 kilometres course with great determination and enjoyed the friendly competition between their school houses — Delphinus, Draco, Pavo and Pegasus. The children have been training hard since early October during their early morning sessions at Leaside Fields. All that hard work paid off.
