posted in: Latest News | 0

64 children from Ramsbury Primary took part in the Flight Centre Schools Triathlon on Sunday at Marlborough College.

In teams of 4, the Year 3-4 children started with an intense 50m relay swim, with the Year 5-6 children undertaking 100m each, who were all cheered on by hundreds of excited parents. They then took part in the 1000m cycling labyrinth on grass and all finished with a 750m run, with the team crossing the finish line together to rapturous applause!

In the Year 3-4 group, the awesome ‘Ramsbury Strikers’ came 6th out of 94 teams and in the Year 5-6 group, the incredible ‘Ramsbury Jedi’s’ came 5th out of 127 teams!

The children all fundraised an incredible amount of money for Restless Development, a global development charity powered by young people, and for our charity this year, UK to Ukraine, a local charity based in Axford, supporting Ukrainian refugees in Ukraine and Poland.

A huge well done to everyone who took part in this unique sporting event!

Assistant Head Teacher, Sophie Pollock said “It was a fantastic performance from the children of Ramsbury Primary School who showed incredible sportsmanship throughout the day. Everybody cheered everybody and I was very proud to be part of ‘Team Ramsbury’! Well done everybody who entered, raised money and represented their school so admirably!”
