The children in Rang a sé were involved in a new school initiative recently. In conjunction with Triathlon Ireland the school engaged in the Tri Heroes programme. This allowed the children to experience and learn all about the 3 disciplines involved in a triathlon. Over the course of a few weeks the children participated in running, cycling and swimming activities to improve their techniques required for a triathlon.


This culminated in a duathlon event which was held in the school on the 13th of December last. Despite the unfortunate weather conditions the children battled on and remained in high spirits as their teachers, parents and friends cheered them on!

The event was a huge success and it will continue to grow from strength to strength. Mo Chumas Abú!
