Rotorua Intermediate 10 August



The Sanitarium Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon is designed for Kiwi kids to help them stay active and healthy through a programme of participation.

We had a great day participating in the Weetbix Tryathlon. It’s always rewarding to try something new, step out of our comfort zone and have a lot of fun. The bonus was for our students to receive a free Weetbix t-shirt, Weetbix bag, medal and yummy breakfast.
