Fred Nicholson School pupils get chance to hold Olympic torch

The Olympic values were the basis of activity days at the Fred Nicholson School in Dereham.

The whole school enjoyed a range of workshops and projects in the mornings and a heptathlon in the afternoons.

Fred Nicholson not only had the Norfolk Special School Torch, but they also had a visit by John Richardson, who lives in Toftwood and was an Olympic torch bearer in Lancashire.

He took his torch in to school for everyone to see and hold.

On Friday, youngsters delivered the special school's torch to the Hall School in Norwich following a whole school relay at Fred Nicholson School. The week ended with a celebration of all the hard work and pupils received Olympic medals for their sporting achievements.
