Pentathlon 2024

Class 5-6 traveled to Freeport for the annual Pentathlon last week. This traditional Waldorf event comprises five athletic components: long jump; javelin; discus; wrestling; and a relay race. Fifth graders from participating New England Waldorf schools were mixed and sorted into city-states: Sparta, Corinth; Athens; and Thebes. It was a day of friendship, copious sunshine, cooperation, and shared successes. As one little sister who traveled to the event quipped, “It was fun, hot, and nobody won!”
