Students celebrate swimming success in Norfolk at the UEA
Proving that swimming is more than just splashing around, 75 children from schools across the county took part in a festival celebrating the activity.
Aquasplash, organised by Active Norfolk, happened at the UEA Sportspark in Norwich yesterday.
The children participated in water polo and relay races and also learnt about water safety.
Ellen Vanlint from Active Norfolk said: 'It was a really good day and it gave the children a chance to do something new that they have not done before.'
The idea behind Aquasplash is to allow participants to demonstrate their skills as individuals and also enjoy working as part of a team.
