You know the year is near the end when it is time for the annual school’s triathlon. Once again, students from all over the region converged on Norman Point in Tin Can Bay for the 7am registration.
After teh action, teacher Dave Arthur praised the SES volunteers (who “scraped the kids off the road”) , the Tin Can Bay Police for helping with the course and safety, Tin Can Bay and Gympie South Schools, sausage sizzle volunteers, Greg from the pool, Pedal Power, Sportspower, Polleys, parents and supporters, staff (especially Mrs Moy and her team) and the 370 or more competitors!
Special mention must be made of Tin Can Bay U12’s Mikala Daniels and Kizzy Guest. Both girls nominated for the swim leg in different teams. Without any team members turning up – they swam and ran, and would completed the whole triathlon if a bike had been available. Well done, girls!
