Years 7 and 8 swim, cycle and run their way to triathlon glory
At the start of another exciting and busy sporting term the pupils of Years 7 and 8 took part in the rather daunting Triathlon event.
This multi-sport tests not only the children’s levels of fitness but also their mental toughness and determination to challenge themselves.
Due to the increased numbers this year the organisation of the event had to be altered, but huge credit goes to so many boys and girls for getting involved.
The increased competition meant that children went faster and pushed harder than ever before.
It was great to see everyone helping each other with shoes and helmets in the changeover /transition area and then cheering on friends at the finish line. All the pupils hugely appreciated the support of all the parents and staff that were dotted around the course, shouting encouragement.
A huge well done to every pupil that competed in this event – this is a significant achievement!
