We welcomed over 400 students from the South Eastern Independent Schools Association (SEISA) group for the annual Cross Country Carnival.
The weather was very accommodating with the last few races finishing in glorious sunshine, which made for a terrific day of running that allowed competitors to perform at their best over the 3.5 and 5.5 km courses.
Our team put in an awesome effort to finish a strong 2nd out of the five competing schools.
1st Gippsland Grammar (Sale)
2nd Newhaven College
3rd Beaconhills Pakenham
4th St Pauls
5th Beaconhills Berwick
All students who represented Newhaven were congratulated for contributing to this outstanding result.
