We saw another family favourite return to the BIS calendar last week with the annual BIS Aquathlon once again competed by over 130 students. British summer time weather was ordered and the conditions were perfect for fast times in and out of the pool. The event consisted of two sections; a swim and then a run. This could be completed individually on the participants own, or as a two person team; one person swimming and their partner running. Both of these disciplines proved popular as we had big numbers for each of the races.
First up were the Year 1 and 2 children, eagerly entering the Junior campus and organising themselves with race information and proudly writing it on their arms for all to see. For some of these children it will have been the first time in the Junior Campus pool and on the big field. They did not, however, let the occasion get the better of them. All children completed the set distances in the water and on the grass to finish a gruelling event in style.
