Two thousand pupils take part in School Games Santa Dash


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”.
