The school took part in the CGS Sports Partnership Cross Country Competition please?
The whole event is made up of four races involving year 3/4 girls, Year 3/4 boys, Year 5/6 girls and year 5/6 boys.
St Mary's won the year 3/4 girls race, came second in the Year 5/6 girls race and they won the year 5/6 boys race.
Rachel Burrough from the school says: "We were also awarded the CGS Sports Partnership Years 3 and 4 Cross Country Trophy which is awarded to the school with the best combined boys and girls score.
"What's more we were awarded the CGS Sports Partnership Years 5 and 6 Cross Country Trophy which is awarded to the school with the best combined boys and girls score. This is a fantastic achievement and one we are so very proud of."
The school will now be sending their 3/4 girls team, year 5/6 girls team and year 5/6 boys team to the East Devon round which is being held at Bicton College on Friday, November 2.
