Duke of Edinburgh’s Award – Voluntary Service
As part of their Duke of Edinburgh’s (DofE) Award young people have to complete three, six or twelve months of voluntary service in the local community depending on whether they are working towards their Bronze, Silver or Gold Award.
The DofE’s Central England Office has calculated the contribution that Arnold Hill Academy’s pupils have made in the Academy’s first year as a Directly Licenced DofE Centre: A total of ninety five young people in Years 9, 10 and 12 gave approximately 1872 hours of voluntary service to local charities and worthy causes. Calculated at the minimum wage, their service was worth around £7600. Over the whole county, the young people of Nottinghamshire gave around 33,000 hours of voluntary service to their communities.
A big thank you and well done to last year’s DofE participants.
Brilliant Book Award!
As part of the Nottinghamshire Brilliant Book Award launch our year 8 book group were invited to meet the author Kim Slater at Mansfield library. All of our pupils were able to purchase one of her many books and get it signed. Kim talked about her life and where she gets her ideas from to inspire her to write her stories. This year’s BBA shortlist was then announced, which the students will now start reading during their book group.
Gedling Borough basketball tournament
Arnold Hill Academy were delighted to host the U14 Gedling Borough basketball tournament recently, and welcomed teams from Redhill Academy, Carlton Academy, Carlton le Willows and Colonel Frank Seeley. The event was a huge success with our year 10 pupils, O’Neill, Nizar, Alex and Zeki, officiating and helping with the scoring. There was an impressive standard of play from all of the teams, and it took the last game to decide the winners between Arnold Hill and Redhill who both had 100% records. Redhill jumped to a 4-2 lead however, Arnold Hill fought back and with a strong defensive performance, won 11-4. In the four games played, Arnold Hill scored a total of 64 points and conceded only four. The team will now go through as winners to represent Gedling Borough at the Winter School Games.
Well done boys and good luck for February!
