Sun­ny­side Ele­men­tary School’s ath­letes in grades four through six have had a busy week in sports and they aren’t fin­ished yet. Last Tues­day the school’s cross-coun­try run­ning team com­peted in a 2.5 km run that took place at Ayer’s Cliff Fair­grounds. Par­tic­i­pants were from five lo­cal ele­men­tary schools; Sun­ny­side, Ayer’s Cliff, Princess El­iz­a­beth, Len­noxville and Hat­ley. There were 58 boys and 68 girls com­pet­ing in the com­pe­ti­tion. Medals were awarded for the top male and fe­male run­ners plac­ing first through third. Sun­ny­side’s Mar­i­ane Noel placed third in the girls’ com­pe­ti­tion.

Sun­ny­side’s soc­cer team took part in a three-school com­pe­ti­tion at Ayer’s Cliff Ele­men­tary School on Tues­day, Septem­ber 27th. Par­tic­i­pat­ing schools were Ayer’s Cliff, Princess El­iz­a­beth and Sun­ny­side. Each school played the other two schools twice, with boys and girls play­ing on

sep­a­rate teams, for a to­tal of six games per school. The fi­nal re­sults for the girls’ teams were Sun­ny­side and Princess El­iz­a­beth tied for first, and tied for first place amongst the boys’ teams were Ayer’s Cliff and Princess El­iz­a­beth.

Wed­nes­day, Septem­ber 28th, Sun­ny­side will hold its’ an­nual Terry Fox Run, where stu­dents will be run­ning or walk­ing 4 km to spon­sor the Terry Fox can­cer char­ity fund.
