Congratulations to our Year 3/4 boys who represented Norwich East, at the School Games Final of Sportshall Athletics, today at the U.E.A Sportspark. Coming second in Norfolk is an incredible achievement and the boys performed so well in a number of running, jumping and throwing events.
The boys were awarded their medals by Iona Lake, who is competing in the steeplechase at the Commonwealth Games in Australia, later this year. She signed all of their t-shirts so they will remember this special day forever. Who knows she may inspire one of them to follow in her footsteps…
Thank you to all of the parents who came to support us. Thank you in particular to Jonathan Childs who helps to train and prepare the children for these events.
If your child is interested in trying this sport then visit the City of Norwich Athletics Club website at conac.org.uk and click on the Sportshall link. This is a fun, team based sport which children can start from the age of 8. Sessions are run throughout the week. The season starts in September and runs through to March when lots of children then start on track and field events outside.
What a great day. Thank you boys!
Mrs Brown & Mr Childs
