The Northbridge International School Cambodia Grade 4 and 5's have been training this past unit in PHE for a biathlon (running and swimming). This unit focused on goal setting and students working towards their personal bests.

The final event was a 250m swim followed by a 1600m run. The students could aim for a time range of either Gold (0-20min) Silver (21-30min) or Bronze (30+ min).
In grade 5 the unit of inquiry looking at the scientific method so students were able to use their data from training to predict their outcomes and set goals. As a class we learned about pacing, breath control and overall improvement in technique.
Overall the students had a very successful day, most of our students achieved silver and some gold. Our top time for grade 4 14:38 and top time for grade 5 was 14:06.
We are proud of the determination all our students showed and look forward to another great semester next year in PHE.
At Northbridge International School Cambodia, with our covered Aquatics Centre, pool facilities and specialised staff, we are very lucky to have the opportunity for our students to learn how to swim as well as improve on existing swimming skills during our PHE classes.
As we approach the last days of the semester at Northbridge International School Cambodia, we can look back fondly on the successful return of sports for our community following the Covid restrictions since 2020. So nice to be back.
