The annual trip to the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield is a welcome treat each year, and this year continued in the tradition of competitive fun. There were sprints, relays and long distance races as well as a range of field events for all to try out under the guidance of Mrs Cook’s superb students from Hope Valley College. Some of our sport stars shone brightly too with a couple of first places, what must have been a record-breaking javelin throw by Jesse that went further than the measuring tape and a great display of relay teamwork.
Well done all – you did Grindleford proud yet again. If she wasn’t training at the same time, I know Jessica Ennis-Hill would have been just as impressed.
Here are some photos to give you an idea of what a fantastic day it is – thank you Mrs Cook!
