World Marathon Challenge! Sirius grit and courage!!
Over 30 students from Sirius Academy took part in a 'World Marathon Challenge'.
The challenge is part of a world -wide competition for Year 8 students only.
The students take it in turn to run 200m at a time as a team - until they have completed a whole marathon!
Our students were exceptional -and showed determination, grit and courage to achieve their best time!
Everyone in the team played their part and responded magnificently !!
Sirius recorded a very respectable time of 2 hours and 9 minutes and 30 seconds - compared to that of their competitors in 2 hours 11 minutes and 50 seconds.
Out of 489 schools throughout the world - at present - Sirius are in 11th position in terms of time- some achievement! (Photo to follow).
