Sprowston pupils get into the Olympic spirit
High school and junior school pupils from near Sprowston came together yesterday to celebrate the Olympics.
They participated in a range of artistic and sporting activities at Sprowston Community High School.
Pupils from Year 5 and 6 at Sprowston Junior, Woodland View, Hainford and Frettenham, and Sparhawk Infant schools all attended.
Along with the high school's Year 7 pupils, they joined in a multi-sport event including athletics, cycling, rugby, tennis and cricket, and received certificates and medals for their efforts.
They were supported by student leaders at the school, and students in Years 8 to 10 worked on sculptures which will be displayed when the Olympic torch visits Norwich on July 4.
