Each child competed in a minimum of two events to a high standard, having great fun and showing fantastic sportsmanship. It was a pleasure for us to see the children thoroughly enjoying the morning. The competition was fiercely  contested with Oxburgh winning the Sports Day for the second successive year.

The lower school sports day took place in the afternoon. All the children took part in a running race, sack race and an egg and spoon race, once again showing great sportsmanship and skills, with Blickling taking the title.
