Instow School’s annual sports day this year started with an Olympic torch relay from the school to the North Devon Cricket Club ground.

The real torch was loaned by local torch bearer Andy Vallance and every child in the school was given the opportunity to carry it for part of the journey.

The children competed in a variety of races, including

sprint, egg and spoon, sack race, posy race, relay and long distance.

The winners stood on an Olympic-style podium to receive their awards and have their photographs taken by local paparazzi, in the form of proud parents!
