Eggs and spoons, javelins, space hoppers and other apparatus were set out ready and waiting at Cayton School meaning one thing - school sports day was on this year!

After the proposed 2012 sporting extravaganza was cancelled due to poor weather, it was game on for pupils, staff and parents who were out in force last Wednesday.

Year 2 teacher and sports coordinator Mark Vasey said: “Around 180 children took part and there were lots of supporting families.

“Everyone enjoyed the day.

“The sun came out in the morning, it was a bit cloudy in the afternoon when the older children held their sports day, but it didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits.”

Activities included a mixture of Olympic and traditional events, from the egg and spoon race to discus, hurdles, dribbling skills and individual races.

Students competed for their house teams, combining results from both the morning and afternoon session, the Lighthouse Keepers took the tiel of the 2013 sporting champions of Cayton School.

The Castle Guardians were the closest contenders, followed by Harbour Masters in third place and Fishing Captains in fourth.

“The kids thought it was absolutely brilliant,” added Mr Vasey. “They didn’t get to have a sports day last year because the weather spoilt it.

“Thank you also to the Friends of Cayton who provided refreshments on the day.”
