Many congratulations to St. Gerard’s Cross Country Team Finalists.
They were brilliant and represented the school with pride.
Special congratulations to Ben Cogan who came 4th in the P7 Boy’s Race and Katie Brennan who was 5th in the P5 Girl’s Race.
The final at Coatbridge outdoor track was the venue for the North Lanarkshire School Final. Congratulations to all St. Gerard’s Team. Well done!
