Day 2 of the Games Finals saw over 600 Yr 3-6 pupils from across the County represented their local School Sport Partnership in the Cross Country Finals at Gresham’s School in Holt. The conditions were challenging with high winds battering the runners as they tackled the challenging course around the school grounds. Three of our year 4s represented the school coming 10th, 12th and 14th!

Day 4 of the Games saw young people from across the County travel to Diss Rugby Club to take part in the 2015 Norfolk School Games Tag Rugby Finals. The event included two separate competitions; an open Yr 5-6 competition for schools of any sized and a Yr 4-6 small schools competition for schools who have less than 125 pupils. During the morning session, teams were split into two pools within each competition with teams playing against each other in a round robin format. Once all of the matches were completed and the results were added together, the teams that finished in 1st and 2nd place in each pool were invited to take part in the afternoons Cup Competition, with the teams that finished 3rd and 4th in each group going into the Plate competition. Both the Plate and Cup competitions were again split into two pools with approx. 4 teams in each. The afternoon saw some close matches with teams coming up against other teams of similar abilities. At the end of the afternoons matches the teams that finished in 1st place in each pool competed against each other to decide the final overall placing for the days competition.

The headline final standings were for the Big Schools Competition Cup Competition;

  • 1st – Wicklewood Primary School (South Norfolk SSP)
  • 2nd – Falcon Junior School (Norwich East SSP)
  • 3rd – Cliff Park Junior School (East Norfolk SSP)

We are very proud of their achievement.

A big thank you to Arthur Pattison for the coaching, encouragement and time that he gave to the tag team as well as to the parents who supported both of these events.
