Schools Triathlon Days

Primary school pupils will be tri-ing their best as part of a day of sport and history at Hever Castle.

Children in KS2 will be taking part in a half day of triathlon training and a half day of cultural learning about the childhood home of Anne Boleyn this week as part of the Tri-Knights Schools Roadshow organised by the Castle Triathlon series.

Elite triathletes will also join the training to share tips with those taking part.

St Lawrence Primary School in Stone Street, Sevenoaks took part in the schools triathlon in 2015 and 2016. Its headteacher Alison Saunders said: “This is a unique and exciting opportunity for the children to be exposed to a contemporary and popular sport. It is our role to expose children to changing trends in learning and sport and help motivate them to lead a healthy lifestyle. Triathlon broken down is swimming, cycling and running so naturally part of a child’s life, and we hope to use this fun platform as a creative way of delivering the curriculum and benefiting the children.”
