Pupils at the Lower School joined thousands of others across the county in taking part in Sport Relief.
Inspired by the notion of mindfulness and having a healthy mind alongside a healthy body, pupils at Norwich School engaged in a ‘Sport Relief mile’ mindful walk, Tai Chi, yoga and various other activities to improve their wellbeing.
Sport Relief aims to help people both get active and have fun whilst raising life-changing amounts of money for charity. The money raised will help to take on some of the biggest issues right here in the UK and around the world, from tackling homelessness to championing mental health.
Lucy Temple, the teacher who organised the activities at Norwich School, said:
“I am really pleased to have been so involved in this year’s Sport Relief. The school became an oasis of calm and serenity throughout the morning and it was lovely to see the children embracing new techniques to improve their wellbeing whilst also raising lots of money for a very worthy cause.”
Last Sport Relief, schools and nurseries helped raise £4 million; and once again they are being encouraged to go all out to help smash that total this year. It is expected that the event at Norwich School will raise several hundred pounds towards that target.
