Some wonderful news on our return. Henry in Year 5 represented The New Beacon at the 2021 British Schools’ Modern Biathlon Championships over the half term. Competition was high, but Henry came second in his swimming heat and 4th in the running heat meaning that he ranked 20th overall in the U10 event (top 1/3) with a total of 2264 points. He ran the 400m in 1:21:15, and swam the 25m swim in 0:21:20. Well done, Henry.
To top it all off, Henry met Old Beaconian and Modern Pentathlon Olympic Champion Joseph Choong, as well as Olympic Champion Kate French.
