Term 2 saw 20 students from Year 4 to Year 6 take part in Aquathon Training. Training was run over a 2 hour session once a week focusing on swimming, transitioning and running. The Aquathon Race consists of a 250m swim and a 1km run done by each individual in a team of 6.
AISHK sent two teams to Kellett in May and KGV last Saturday. KGV is the pinnacle of primary school Aquathon with 26 teams competing from 15 top International Schools.
