Three Aylsham High School students are organising a dodgeball tournament for about 80 younger pupils from six cluster schools.

Harry Barwick, Lyndon Ritchie and Austin Everitt, all in Year Nine, have to plan every aspect of the event, on March 14, in order to gain an award from the Edexcel examining board.

They have completed a first aid course, are receiving dodgeball coaching sessions, have produced information packs for the schools, and the Friends of the high school have bought balls which the cluster schools - Hevingham and Marsham, Bure Valley, Buxton, Erpingham, Colby and Aldborough - will be allowed to keep.

The boys, aged 13 and 14, have also been responsible for all administration connected with the event, including publicising it.

They hope the tournament will become an annual event and that the schools will establish dodgeball clubs.
