On Thursday 23rd February, 21 children from Arno Vale represented Gedling at the Nottinghamshire Winter Games (Sportshall Athletics). After a fantastic yet tough day of competing in a range of track and field events, the team were awarded bronze medals, for being the third best team in the whole of Nottinghamshire. This is the third year that we have now made the top three, which is such a fantastic achievement. The team behaved impeccably and demonstrated the Olympic and Paralympic values throughout the afternoon (respect, excellence, friendship, determination, courage, equality and inspiration).
Each of the students should be extremely proud of themselves.
Bring on next year!

Y5/6 Athletics Team: Gedling Champions 2015
On Monday 7th December the Year 5/6 Athletics Team were crowned Gedling Champions for the third successive year. In beating a very strong Carlton Central team by five points, the team recorded one of the greatest sporting achievements in Arno Vale's history. The fact that usual rivals Killisick and Arnold Mill finished 4th and 6th respectively highlights what an extremely competitive final this was. The standard was of the highest quality and it really should not be underestimated what a fantastic achievement this is.
The girls representing Arno Vale won five of their eight events and the boys won the speed bounce, long jump and hurdles events. As always the behaviour and sportsmanship of the children was outstanding.
The 2013 team went on to finish 4th in the Nottinghamshire County Final whilst the 2014 team won silver medals for finishing second in the prestigious event. Our focus will now be on achieving another top three finish. The County Final will take place towards the end of February.

Great representatives for Arno Vale and Gedling, qualifying from their family heat and then winning the district heat and going on to perform really well in the County Final (School Games). The team finished 4th and just two points off a bronze medal. What is very important to note is that this team not only competed with terrific enjoyment and enthusiasm but also with great sporting attitudes, always showing respect for opposition teams. Every single member contributed to our success. It was an absolute pleasure to coach them and be involved in the School Games County Final day.
