Pupils all ready for an­nual beach triathlon

Kapi-Mana News - - EDUCATION -

Ti­tahi Bay School will host its third an­nual triathlon next Satur­day.

It is the school’s fundraiser for the year.

The races start at Ti­tahi Bay Beach at 9am for the new en­trants/year 1 group, and will be fol­lowed by year 2 and the rest of the school in as­cend­ing or­der.

Chil­dren in the triathlon will run, cy­cle and then swim ( or wade) in their in­di­vid­ual year groups, with the length of each dis­ci­pline ad­justed to the age of the year group.

‘‘We are very thank­ful for the sup­port of our lo­cal surf club,’’ said Robyn Fountain, par­ent of year 2 twins and an en­thu­si­as­tic sup­porter of the school.

‘‘We are ex­tremely blessed with hav­ing such a great beach and flat sur­round­ing area.


‘‘And, just like last year, the lo­cal busi­nesses have been be­hind us 100 per cent.

‘‘Their gen­eros­ity is out­stand­ing and it makes us proud to be part of such a fan­tas­tic com­mu­nity.’’

The event will be near the Toms Rd en­trance to the beach.

The com­mu­nity is en­cour­aged to get along and join in on the fun, raf­fles and food, and to cheer the chil­dren on.

A course map will be posted on the surf club out­door no­tice­board.

Funds raised will pur­chase stag­ing for the school hall.

Beach ac­tion: The an­nual triathlon is al­ways a big day for Ti­tahi Bay School.
