Discover Your Ability
Sunday 2nd June 2019
Norwich School is working with Able2B and the charity Just4children to hold a "Discover Your Ability" event at the school. We are asking 30 disabled children and 30 Norwich School children to work together in teams to take part in sports day activities, including a running/walking race around the Cathedral grounds and a cycle ride. Teams will be carefully paired together to match interests and likes, and they will work together in the run-up to the event to decide on a strategy for completing the course to the best of their ability. The aim is to give a visual display of how changing the perceptions of disability and achieving full inclusivity can lead to improved outcomes for everyone.
More information about Able2B can be found by clicking here.

The Lower School is delighted to invite pupils from local primary schools for a day of scientific learning with our resident scientist Mr Worton. Pupils will don lab coats and goggles to become "mini scientists" for the day, which will conclude in the launch of a class rocket.
