Team of 115!

There was a stunning sunrise on Sunday 10 February as over 2500 children arrived at Pt England Reserve to participate in the Weet-bix TRYathlon. Our team of 115 children from St Heliers School were full of excitement mixed in with just a little nervous anticipation.

Many of the children had attended the training sessions held at Glover park leading up to the race. They knew their transition checklists, they were ready to put in 100% and most importantly to have fun, and that is what they did! It was wonderful to see each child go past looking determined, happy and proud, especially those who saw me and yelled out “I’ve Got This!”

This event is incredibly well organized and is a fantastic introduction for children to experience how great this kind of activity can make them feel, both physically and mentally.

I would like to say a very big congratulations to all of the children who competed, and thank you so much to the parents who made it possible for them to do so.
