Can you think of a better way to end the Autumn half term than with an Interhouse Netball Competition? While there were rumours of rain after a week of continuous downpours, it ended up being a beautiful autumn afternoon on Friday, 24th October as the Norfolk House girls headed over to Broomfield Park for the competition. Several parents and siblings attended the matches and there was a lively, joyful feel in the air as Clive and Nelson started off the first match. Throughout all the matches Form 5 and 6 girls patiently guided the Form 3 and 4 girls, assisting them to their correct positions and gently reminding them of the rules. It was wonderful to see all the girls working together. Clive dominated the first match, scoring 2 points in the first half and 3 points in the second half, followed by a win by Wellington against Nelson in the second match. Whilst Wellington controlled the first half of the final match vs. Clive, scoring 3 points, Clive’s defense held on strong in the second half allowing no additional points to be scored. Wellington won the competition with a total of 9 points, with Maria S. of Form 6 scoring the majority of the points. Form 2 girls joined to watch the final match and all the girls shared a “tea” together. The event was a huge success!

Rugby report

Norfolk house boys played their first Tag Rugby match of the season against Maple Walk School on 24th October.
The Year 6 team won their match 15-8 in a fun and entertaining encounter against strong opposition. The boys tackled with great enthusiasm and demonstrated great pace in all positions.
The Year 5 team drew their match 8-8 in a thrilling end to end game. The two teams were very evenly matched, which made for a really exciting game to watch.
All the boys in both teams performed to a very high standard, especially considering it was our first fixture. They displayed great team spirit and sportsmanship.
