Tumpane Cross Country Runners at Etobicoke Centennial Park

The Tumpane Cross Country team ran their races on October 2nd 2014 at Etobicoke Centennial Park. Students in Grade 3-5 participated in the long distance races and showed great determination in completing the very difficult course. With each race consisting of anywhere from 200-300 students our students faired quite well in their results. The team was very dedicated in attending practice and their training helped improve their stamina. With only a month to prepare for the very long running event this is often not very easy to do. Coaches Haye and Harvey were very proud of all our runners!!!!!




Terry Fox Run


Tumpane students collected over $ 600 for cancer research during our annual Terry Fox Run at Tumpane P.S. Classes brought in their money and ran for 30 minutes each outside in our school yard to see who could run the farthest. Each class did their best but in the end there were two clear winners. For the Primary division the winning class was Ms. Campagna and on the junior side of the school the winners were from Mlle.Given.

The event was a great success, the students had fun but most important we raised a lot of money for a very good cause. Be very proud of yourselves Tumpane community.

Mr. Harvey and Ms. Bair
