‘Give Them Wings So They Can Fly!’


KS2 Accrington Academy Time Trial Biathlon


On Monday, 9th October six KS2 children  competed in the increasingly popular schools’ biathlon at Accrington Academy.  Competing in the Under 10 and Under 11 categories, against children from schools across East Lancashire,  each had to complete a 50m indoor swim followed by an 800m outdoor run.  All the Gisburn children performed very well with particularly strong performances in the swim from 'A' and in the run from 'B' and 'I'.  'B' earned a silver medal in the Under 10 boys with 'A' and 'I' just missing out on places in their categories, all three finishing behind children from Baxenden Primary, a school with a long tradition of success in biathlons. 


Although a tough event, all the Gisburn children enjoyed competing in the biathlon.  Well done to all!
