Triathlon t-shirts!

 

Mrs Rhodes has arranged for special triathlon t-shirts for all of us. All pupils will be given a t-shirt to be worn for all events. T-shirts are also available for staff, parents and friends to buy. Our triathlon logo was designed in a school competition, won by Freya, Lucy and Olivia G. The t-shirts are sponsored by our cycle training team from Big on Bikes. We are delighted to have them to wear. Thank you.
