Triathlon Expo Trip

On Friday Mr Lees took a group of Year 7 pupils on a rewards trip to the Triathlon Expo at Event City. The trip was a reward to pupils who have shown outstanding attendance for extra-curricular activities in PE including participation in competitions for the A Team.

The expo gave pupils the opportunity to take part in a “Driathlon” and test themselves against each other and pupils from other schools, try out new state of the art fitness equipment and taste a variety of sports nutrition products.

The pupils also got the opportunity to meet former Great British World Champion Swimmer Mark Foster who was a guest at the expo, as well as Adam Walker who is the first British person to swim the toughest 7 Oceans in the world.
