School Groups

If your school has registered as a group at your event, your students can receive a school group discount for their registration fee and help your school to win great prizes! Your students can join your school’s group either by completing a permission slip and returning this to the school group coordinator or by choosing to link to your school group when registering from home.

In order for your school to qualify for prizes, the school group will need to have a minimum number of participants entered:

School Roll * Number of Participants Required
100+ 15+ students
51-100 10+ students
50 or less 5+ students

*School rolls as supplied by Ministry of Education 

School group registrations do not carry over from year to year, so you will need to apply to enter a school group into the 2016/2017 Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon series even if you took part last year.
