P6 ‘TRYathlon’ Event on Wisepay


P6: Edinburgh `TRYathlon’ Event
Tuesday 5th May 2015 9.00am 12.00pm

Active Schools, in partnership with triathlonscotland and Edinburgh Leisure, have invited our P6 pupils to the 2015 Triathlon Event. This free annual event will again be held at Forrester/ St Augustine’s High School on Tuesday 5th May 2015.

The Race distances will be: 40m Swim (approx. two lengths of our pool)/ 400m Bike / 400m Run. Pupils do not need to be strong swimmers but should be confident in the water. This is a participation rather than a competitive event where pupils will be encouraged to give Triathlon a try `TRYathlon.’

Pupils will travel by travel coach leaving school at 9.00am SHARP. Once the pupils have completed the event, they will be able to take part in many extra activities that will be provided. (Pupils who do not wish to participate in the event will remain in school with Ms French and Mr Anthony.) We will return to school in time for lunch but pupils should bring snacks and water for the morning as well as a bag to store their clothes. Pupils should wear a swimming costume underneath biking/running kit and can bring a towel if they wish.

Pre event Kit Crate
Kit crates will be provided for all participants in the St Augustine’s Games Hall. Following the swim, participants will put on their bike and running kit from their crate and enter the transition to cycling. Primary Schools will complete 1 lap of the Pitch Crates will be removed following the pool section and taken to St Augustine’s Games Hall for collection after the event.

Participants will be directed from the Games Hall into the Pool area with their crates where they will have a full brief of what will be expected. Staff will make it clear if there are any weaker swimmers at the Pool. Noodles and floats can be used by any participant. The participants will collect a goodie bag at the finish line and the opportunity for pictures with Elite Triathletes can take place here.

P6 pupils have been asked to note interest and we have up to 65 places available. Please log on to Wisepay and book a place if you wish your child to participate and email lucy.gallagher@sciennes.edin.sch.uk with any questions.
