Y6 begin their triathlon with a ride along the

Monsal Trail

Today Y6 travelled to the Monsal Trail to complete the first stage of their sponsored triathlon. This involved a 15 mile cycle ride for some and a 4 mile walk to the Monsal Viaduct for others.

Y6 are completing the triathlon to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support, The Cystic Fibrosis Trust & Diabetes UK.

We need to say a huge thank you to all the parents and grandparents that came along to help us with transport, the ride and the walk - it wouldn't have been possible to do it without them. Also, thanks to Heanor Gate Science College & Mark Jackson who helped with transport and let us borrow their minibus.

A really great day. Everyone has good reason to be proud of themselves!
