Children in Year 3 to Year 6 have competed in our first House Duathlon. The event took place throughout last week in the children’s games and swimming lessons.

Year 3 opened the event with their swimming races and Dursley took the lead in the first round of the competition with a combined time of 17mins 1secs. The House Duathlon continued with Year 3 and Year 4 running, where Dursley moved ahead of Grappenhall by 1 minute and the team finished in 2hrs 21mins at the halfway mark. However, Grappenhall were able to take the lead after the Year 5 and Year 6 running event, with 4 hrs 24 mins. On the last day,  Year 5 and Year 6 competed in swimming. After this, it was time to count the final scores and announce the winning team.

We are glad that our first-ever House Duathlon was packed with excitement. The children demonstrated exceptional effort and the teams showed great support for each other.

“The House Duathlon exceeded all expectations: the children performed brilliantly, and it created a real buzz around school. It was great to watch everyone competing and showing excellent determination, compassion, and a desire to do their utmost to help their house win. We will certainly make this an annual event!” Mr Gavin Jones, Head of Sport.
