This event was once again strongly supported by Dan Hetherington, from British Rowing who we would like to say a huge thank you to for his continued hard work and support and special thanks also must go to Norwich Rowing club for supporting the event.
This event is extremely pleasing to organize and witness as we feel that the level of participation at both Level 2 and level 3 across the county in this event provides us with a diverse grouping of competitors that demonstrate the School Games values most evidently and really enforces the message that competitive school sport can be enjoyed by all young people.
A fantastic day enjoyed by all surrounded by a hive of atmosphere, laughter and determination to do your personal best.
“ A fantastic day excellently organized and ran, our students have really enjoyed the day, thank you!” Fakenham Academy
