Old Palace pupils compete in the Restless Triathlon sporting event to raise money for charity.
Girls from Old Palace aged from 8 – 13 took part in the Human Race Triathlon on Sunday 23rd April. Competing in teams of 4, the girls all had to swim, cycle and run.
It was a fun filled day and the sun was shining as the girls came away with medals and goody bags. The highest performing team came in third place which consisted of Emily, Morgan, Vishali and Alice, all in Year 8.
All the girls had to raise a minimum of £50 sponsorship with many girls raising over £100. The money raised will be split between Restless Development and The Children’s Trust in Tadworth. Total sponsorship raised was in excess of £1,000 but sponsorship is still coming in.
Mrs Coster, Head of Prep PE commented: “Well done to all competitors and especially some of our youngest athletes (some of who were only 8) as a triathlon is no easy event!”
Restless triathlon, aimed at young people, is a sporting event for all levels of competitor and schools are encouraged to enter a range of abilities, from competitive teams, to those who want to have a fun day out with friends.
Restless Development is a youth-led development agency placing young people at the forefront of charitable development in Africa and Asia.
