The Eastern Independent Schools Melbourne (EISM) Cross Country Carnival was held Wednesday 12 September at Ruffey Lake Park in Doncaster.

This is a very large carnival, with the EISM hosting all three divisions in the same location on the same day. This brings together students from 21 independent schools across the eastern region of Melbourne. The Cross Country carnival is truly a celebration of the EISM sporting network.

Our extremely dedicated students and staff have been training for some time now and were keen to race the delightful trails of Ruffey Lake Park. Their hard work, and the support of each other, contributed to Huntingtower winning overall in the Central Division. A special thank you needs to go to all teachers who were involved in training sessions throughout the term, and an even bigger thank you to the students who attended the weekly trainings and braved the cold mornings – the trophy is an awesome reward for their effort!
