This inaugural event is going to be so much fun for the whole family. The Triple Challenge triathlon consists of a Swim – Run – Paddle for both Junior and Open divisions. In and around the event are many other activities: Easter Bunny, Games Stalls, Pamper Stall, Pony Rides, Inflatables, water activities, delicious Food Stalls, Craft Beer, Tea Garden and many more activity stalls.
The Family Fun Day is the brainchild of the St Francis College Parents Association (SFCPA), but is inclusive of many local businesses and activities.
There is no other event offered that weekend besides the Easter egg hunt at the Links, so we look to the support of not only the school, but of the whole community & visitors to our Village.
