On 8th May thirteen pupils from Northgate took part in an angling competition held at Barford Lakes and organised by the West Norwich and Dereham School Sports Partnership. Pupils were competing against other SSP schools including Ormiston Victory, Neatherd, and Langley for the right to represent the SSP team at the Norfolk School Games finals. The aim of the competition was simple; to catch the most fish. Pupils competed in teams of three with the winning team being decided by the team’s combined catch weight.
The pupils did exceptionally well, particularly in the warm weather, with two of the Northgate teams finishing in the top two. Northgate’s team C (Ben, Jacob and Charlie) finished fourth with a combined catch weight of 8lb 15oz. The overall winners were Northgate’s team B consisting of Brandon, Liam and Harry who won with a combined catch of 21lb 11oz. These three will now go on to the county finals in June. Well done to all involved!
