Rupanyup Primary School staff and students enjoyed a busy Melbourne Cup day, participating in cross country and ‘crazy hat’ events.
The students usually compete in cross country running at Murtoa with other Dunmunkle schools, however, they competed at Rupanyup this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
School business manager Natalie Robbins said students raced for their houses, with Dyer winning overall.
“We were very impressed with everyone’s efforts,” she said.

“We also enjoyed a fantastic parade of fancy and wacky hats.
“Each class showed off their style to the others before staff made the difficult decision of who won in each room.
“It was very tough, but in the P12 room, the winner was Zahra, in the 3-4 room the winner was Sophie and the 5-6 winner was Georgie.”
Cross country winners: 11-12 boys, 1st Hugh, 2nd Archie, 3rd Jaxon; 11-12 girls, Emily, Abby, Hilary; 9-10, Lewis, Hamish, Casey; 7-8, Riley, Larnie; 5-6, Harry, Ella, Valeria.
