Oakfields Montessori School in Harwood Hall Lane took part in the ISA Junior Triathlon event at Woodlands School in Hutton Manor on Friday, October 5.

The pupils were selected from Years 5 and 6 based on their cross country, swimming abilities together with trials for their stamina on a bike.

At the triathlon they had to swim 90m, jump out of the pool and cycle 800, and then run 80m around the field.

Chrissy Peacham, head of PE, said: “The results were astounding for our school considering it was our first time that we have entered and that we are such a small school compared to many schools there.

“Congratulations to all of our pupils who showed such determination, enthusiasm, motivation and education.”

The school’s girls team finished seventh and the boys finished eighth out of 22 schools.
