MONKS’ Dyke Technology College celebrated their foutth annual Sports Day at King George V stadium at Grimsby.

This was their second attempt due to inclement weather conditions. The House Captains dressed in fancy dress, proudly displaying their House colours.

Some of the races were so close photo-finishes were used to determine the winners. The overall winner was Newton House and the Silver Cup (decorated in House colours) was presented to the two jubilant House Captains.

The atmosphere was electric and everyone had a very enjoyable day, both participants and spectators alike.

Jasmine Snowden Year 8, who took part in the 800metres and relay races said: “This is my first Sports Day at Monks’ Dyke and it is very exciting. It makes it special being held at King George V stadium. Everyone is having such a good time.”

Numerous records were broken throughout the day and a particular highlight was when Roy Saxby, one of the official Olympic Torch Bearers, unexpectedly arrived to run alongside the ten House Captains holding the torch alight.
