A new event was added to New Leake Primary School’s sports day 10 years ago – the 100m dash inside!

The fun had to be abandoned after the rain came down forcing everyone inside, but the school remained determined to complete the races – when the ground dried up.

However, pupils did manage to complete a few of the traditional sports day events, as pictured here.
