The Monte Carlo method has been used to calculate the trapped magnetic field in superconducting plates with holes. The mechanism of flux pinning on the holes is implemented with special subprocesses added to the algorithm: vortex capture and emission, both occurring on the hole boundaries. Secondary peaks related to the holes emerge on the calculated profiles of the trapped magnetic field. It has been found that these peaks disappear in plates with sufficiently strong pinning or when the computational mesh is coarse (the case corresponding to a low resolution of probes in experiments). The dependence of the trapped field on the hole radius has been analyzed.
