[21 Oct 2013]

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).
