Get ready for Norfolk school games
The Norfolk School Games will take place on June 18 and 19, and schools are being encouraged to get involved.
Sport England is investing up to �35.5m of National Lottery funding in the games from now until 2015.
The aim is to inspire young people to take part in more competitive sport, and will see intra-school, inter-school and regional competition.
The focus is also on encouraging participation in sport regardless of abilities and experience.
Schools can also use their participation in the School Games to help qualify for London 2012 Ticketshare tickets, 100,000 tickets are available for schools through the London 2012 Get Set Network.

The competition will use the inspiration of 2012 to transform competitive sport in schools and get more young people playing sport.
