Sports Awards Assembly at the Pelican

14 Nov 2013

Three members of The Cambridge University Modern Pentathlon Team came to present certificates and medals to the children for their achievements in Kung Fu, tennis, water skills, swimming, football, classical ballet, street dance, gymnastics and trampolining. The children were fascinated to discover Modern Pentathlon is made up of 5 different sports: swimming, running and shooting, fencing and show jumping and afterwards many were particularly keen to take up fencing!  Is there a link between this and the Pelicans’ much-loved topics on knights and castles?  Henny Dillon, the Chairman of the club, was very pleased to see that Pelicans participated in such a wide range of sports and encouraged the children to think about becoming involved in Modern Pentathlon in the future.
