0

Over 2000 pupils of all ages from schools across Norwich have taken part in the national School Games Santa Dash.

The Santa Dash is a fun way for pupils to stay active whilst having fun in the lead up to Christmas. Pupils were challenged to run, walk or jog around their school field wearing a festive Santa hat or Christmas jumper.

Pupils from the following school have taken part:

  • Chapel Break Infant School
  • Bignold Primary School
  • City of Norwich School
  • The Clare School
  • Cringleford Primary School
  • Hethersett Woodside Primary
  • The Hewett Academy (Taking part Thur 18th Dec)
  • Hethersett Academy (Taking part Thur 18th Dec)

Gary Hydon, PE Coordinator for The Clare School commented:

“It was fantastic to get outside in the sunshine once again (although a little chilly), and don our Santa hats. The pupils were very excited and completed many laps of our outside track.

Jon Osborne, Norwich SSP added;

“The Santa Dash is a great way of encouraging pupils to get more physical activity at a time when they cant take part in lots of clubs and activities due to the bad weather or COVID restrictions. We all like to eat a few more treats over the festive period but events like this are a great way of showing that we can all remain active and healthy over Christmas”.
