All the way from (liddle ol’) Norfolk…
Representing the UK at international level, traversing the Atlantic to the Big Apple, the epic journey for the Springwood High mock trials team has finally come to an end with the West Norfolk teenagers finishing 4th in a competition comprising 44 teams from all around the world.
It was when they heard the announcement “… and all the way from Norfolk in the UK!” that they looked at each other in disbelief. It was in that moment that all the hours, the after school work, Sunday rehearsals and working through the summer holidays became worth every single second. There were tears of joy and laughter and a great sense of achievement and relief all round.
As you can tell from this photo, emotions were still running high at midnight when the results were announced. To say they were, and still are, ecstatic would be the understatement of 2016! Well done team, you sure know how to set the bar high!
