Triathlon

A group of our year five and year six children recently competed in the first ever Sunderland Schools Triathlon, held at Silksworth Sports Complex.

The children had to do each discipline for a set amount of time, and the distance covered in the allotted time was measured.

At the end of each discipline the children’s position was determined by how far they had managed to travel. At the end of the event all the distances were added up to find the overall winner.

We finished in a very creditable overall position, and we had some individual winners too!

All of our children who took part were excellent ambassadors for our school, showing fantastic sportsmanship and excellent interaction with children from other schools. The Mayor of Sunderland commented on how good the children were during the event.
