The Norfolk School Games resumed today with Day 4 of the 2016 Winter Finals which was held at the Sportspark at the UEA. The day saw over 600 young people aged 5-15 years old taking part in the county finals for gymnastics, sportshall athletics, table tennis and indoor rowing.
The event was opened with a short address by School Games staff as well as a welcome speech from Phil Steele the Director of the Sportspark, the main sponsor of the Norfolk School Games, and host to Day 4 of the Games. Following the speeches, the pupils were entertained by a performance from Jump Rope UK who performed an incredible display of skipping skills.
All of the pupils that took part in the Finals had qualified to represent their School Sport Partnership (SSP) by taking part in local qualifying competitions held across the county over recent months.

Staff and coaches at the event were given the opportunity to nominate pupils for a brand new Norfolk School Games Sportsmanship Award. The award aims to recognise young people who show sportsmanlike qualities such as; teamwork, positive attitude, sportsmanship, empathy. Awards were given out to deserving pupils in both Primary aged events (gymnastics and sportshall athletics), with pupils being being congratulated in front of their peers and presented with a certificate at the end of each event.
Tomorrow is Day 5 of the Games and will see hundreds more young people gathering once more at the Sportspark for the County swimming finals as well as the high school sportshall athletics finals.
