Van Riebeeckpark Primary Cross Country


Van Riebeeckpark Primary is known as one of the top Cross Country Primary schools.  Cross Country offers

group participation to give every child the opportunity to take part. In 2018 more than 150 children took part

in a league competition. We also take part in team competitions like Super 12, Noord Vaal and Kempies / 

Riebies group relay competition. 


A big event of the Cross Country is the Cross Country training camp every year. The training camp takes place

in Sabie where the athletes train in the mountains and do adventure activities.
