Over 100 Pupils Participate In The School Games Yr5-6 High 5 Netball Competition


Yesterday was a blustery afternoon which saw over 100 pupils compete in the School Games Yr 5-6 High 5 Netball Competition at the UEA Sportspark. The event forms part of the Norfolk School Games which aims to increase the number of opportunities pupils have to represent their school in competitive sport.

14 teams from 8 different schools attended the event. The Schools that attended the event were;

High 5 Netball is an entry based game into netball and is tailored to children. It is a mixed gender game with the number of team players on the court at one time reduced to five. Each of the pupils are also required to follow a rotation, giving the opportunity for all involved to learn and play the different roles within the game.

At the end of the competition, the results were;

  • 1st:          St Francis of Assisi Primary A
  • 2nd:         Hethersett Primary
  • 3rd:         Cringleford Primary A
