Today, 170 pupils came to the Norwich Family Golf Centre to participate in the Yr1-2 and Yr3-4 Tri-Golf Competition on a lovely sunny morning. The event forms part of the Norfolk School Games programme which aims to give pupils the opportunity to participate in competitive sport.
17 teams from four schools attended the event. The schools that attended were;
- Chapel Break Infant School
- Clover Hill Infant School
- Free School Norwich
- St Francis of Assisi Primary School
Schools were invited to bring up to three teams for each of the age brackets (Yr1-2 and Yr3-4). The team which scores the most points from each of the competitions is invited to represent the Norwich SSP at the Norfolk School Games Finals.
The competition consisted of eight different activities following the Golf Foundation, Tri-Golf format. On each of the activities, pupils had the opportunity to practice for a short amount of time, before a 5 minute scoring period. In this time, the teams had to score as many points as they could. At the end of the event, all the activity scores were tallied and the results were as follows;
