FOUR local schools competed in the second annual Open Morning Triathlon at St John’s on-the-Hill School on Saturday (4th March).

Pupils from Primrose Hill Church of England Primary Academy, Berry Hill Primary School, Rogiet Primary School and St John’s on-the-Hill School competed in teams in swimming, indoor athletics and running races.

The St John’s Lions came first, followed by Rogiet Sharks in second place and both Berry Hill teams (Rhinos and Leopards) in joint third place.

Lisa Duncan, Head of PE and Girls’ Games at St John’s, said: “This year’s triathlon tested the children’s fitness, agility and determination. The school teams put their all into each event and we were particularly impressed with the running – the children took turns to run for a total of 15 minutes – each completing between two and four 400 metre laps – they kept up a strong pace throughout and the standard of running was very high.”
