Prep pupils compete in first-ever Triathlon competition
June 27, 2022

Rydal Penrhos Prep pupils gave their all during a recent Triathlon competition, the first time they’ve competed in such an event.

Enhancing development through physical exercise is something that forms a key component of the education provided at Rydal Penrhos. Pupils are encouraged to participate in activities such as sports and outdoor education from an early age, which bolsters key skills that can transition into a classroom environment in some instances.

We are always looking for new and exciting ways for pupils across all areas of school life. They are also given the opportunity to compete in fixtures and other competitions across the region over the academic year, which is another outstanding method of improving and learning how to remain composed in a pressurised setting.

Another exciting element to this came from Prep pupils recently, who got the chance to compete in their first-ever Triathlon competition. This was organised by the Brownlee Foundation and greeted by tremendous weather to mark the occasion.

The Brownlee Foundation, set up by triathletes Alistair and Jonny Brownlee after their successes at the 2012 Olympics, was founded to inspire children from all backgrounds to enjoy sport, encourage them to lead active lifestyles and benefit from the opportunities sport provides.

This caught the imagination of our pupils despite the testing nature of triathlons. Despite their lack of experience within this discipline, each competitor gave maximum effort during the event to emerge from their respective debuts with an enormous sense of pride.

The effort, commitment and drive demonstrated by each pupil were nothing short of outstanding. They also encouraged each other through some testing stages of the triathlon to reach their goals.

Rydal Penrhos is planning to enter more triathlon events next year after this success and we would like to congratulate every pupil involved on an exceptional effort.
