Weetbix TRYathlon - What a great day!
On Sunday morning (very early actually) a dedicated group of students and even more dedicated group of parents and supporters made their way to Pioneer Stadium and Centennial Park for the Weetbix TRYathlon.
We put up a gazebo and our two school 'teardrop' flags to show that Oaklands had arrived. This became our 'base' and came in very handy when the rain came down.
It took awhile to get through all the events, but the satisfaction on the faces of students made it all worthwhile. Students' had to dig deep and call on all their reserves of 'just do it' as well as perseverance when the legs refused to move forward.
This THURSDAY we are going to get a photo at school of athletes with their blue weetbix t-shirts and medals. This is open to ALL students from Oaklands who competed on the day, not just the ones who registered through the school.
A reminder notice wil go into the school newsletter on Wednesday.
If any parents / supporters have any photos of the big day, we would love to get hold of them and put them on the blog.
You can either email them to email@example.com
or drop them into room 5 on a pen drive
