Although the weather tried to spoil the annual Duke’s School Sports Day, held at Gateshead International Stadium, the pupils showed their resilience despite the occasional shower and demonstrated some amazing sporting achievements. With a range of track and field events, there was something for all pupils to get involved in, and to also show their support in the stand for their house team. Pupils really showed their house colours in their dress and various other colourful additions, and the support shown to all competitors was outstanding from the crowd.
Another fantastic day at Gateshead Stadium! Thanks to all the pupils and staff for their hard work, and especially to those sixth form and Y11 pupils who came back to help out in running events and making sure all went smoothly.
Congratulations to Hild House who won the overall Sports Day Trophy this year!
