WELL DONE TO OUR STUDENTS WHO ENTERED THE TRYATHLON
Congratulations on completing the Hibiscus Coast Sanitarium Weet-Bix
Kids TRYathlon! Well done, we hope you had fun with the 2,400 Kiwi kids who
took part there.
Whangaparaoa School - Won 15 x FREE entries into the 2017/18 Weet-Bix Kids Triathlon Series!!!
Thank you to Leonie Frogley from
Whangaparaoa School for
organising the largest school group with 83 students!
Leonie wins a Watties prize pack.
Also a big Thank You to all those families who helped on the food tent at the Tryathlon on Sunday. Their efforts raised just on $2,300 for the school! That was a lot of bacon & egg rolls & sausages to sizzle! A special mention to Leonie Frogley for coordinating and a huge thanks to Mardie Wilson, Helena Humphries, Sam Munnings, Donna Nicholson and Warren Frogley for the big effort in organising the food, money and equipment.
On Sunday I drove to the weet-bix tryathlon.
In the tryathlon we have to swim then bike then run.
The 8 year old’s have yellow caps and yellow stickers, when it was the 8 year old’s turn we all
bunched up in a big huddle, soon I saw my friends Kris and Isaac and Kruze, we took a photo
together. Then a helper came and she put us in a group I was in the second group. After, we
got split up into tinier groups.
Soon it was my turn to get into the the water, we ran into the water. I dived into the water and
swam and ran in the water. When I got out of the water I sprinted to get my bike. I took off
my rash shirt and grabbed my weet-bix shirt and put it on. I popped my shoes on and got my
helmet and walked my bike to the hop on sign. I hopped on and cycled as fast as I could, I
passed some people as I biked around the corner and then I sped as fast as I could. Soon I
came to a slow down sign, everyone put their brakes on. I nearly fell of my bike. Soon I was
speeding down the road. I did a 180 spin and headed back to the bike entry and walked my bike
to my transition box. I put my bike on the stand and took my helmet off. I jogged to the exit
and ran around the circle. Soon came the finish, I sprinted to the finish past everyone. 1
minute later Eliza Mccartney put my medal around my neck and Duke, Charley, Kruze and I took
My mum and dad came to me, then me and Kruze took a photo of us biting our medal. Soon it was time
to do prize giving… Our school got 15 free entries to the weet-bix tryathlon! THE END
