Stu­dents show their fit­ness

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Stay­ing fit: Cheeky rain showed up just as Mata­mata Col­lege stu­dents set off on their an­nual cross-coun­try run on Thurs­day.

Head of phys­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion Wendy David­son said this year the run was pro­mot­ing be­ing smoke­free and keep­ing fit and ac­tive.

‘‘The idea is that we are a smoke­free school and we en­cour­age stu­dents to make their own de­ci­sions around their health and well­be­ing,’’ she said.

Stu­dents had been train­ing for the Smoke­free Run for Health in phys-ed class for the past few months. Top run­ners from each age group will go on to com­pete at the Thames Val­ley ath­let­ics com­pe­ti­tion.

Ni­cola Ste­wart was at the start line.
