What an amazing day! - The Arthur School took three teams to compete in the L3 Birmingham Schools Sportshall Athletics Finals - having qualified as North Birmingham champions in the regional competitions two weeks ago! (See the event report from this competition in a previous post!).
Today's finals were held at the Doug Ellis Sports Centre (BCU) in Perry Barr. Our three teams, Y7 boys, Y7 girls and Y8 girls were all competing in separate competitions, with approximately 12 other teams, coming from schools all across the Birmingham area.

The competition involved a wide range of indoor track and field events - including: Sprints & Long Distance races, Multiple Relay's, Shot Putt, Vertical Jump, Broad Jump, Standing Triple Jump and Speed Bounce events.
The atmosphere throughout the competition was fantastic!! All of the Arthur Terry students competed brilliantly and supported each other superbly. There were many notable performances amongst our students, including many 1st places in the heats and events that took place - which made for a very exciting wait as the results were announced during the closing ceremony (see picture above!)
Congratulations to our Y7 Boys - 1st Place and Gold Medal Winners!!
Congratulations to our Y7 Girls - 3rd Place and Bronze Medal Winners!!
Congratulations to our Y8 Girls - 1st Place and Gold Medal Winners!!
...to have three teams qualify for the L3 Birmingham Schools finals as regional winners was fantastic, and to now have three teams all walking away with medals from the finals - including two 'Gold's' and a 'Bronze' is absolutely amazing! - Well done to all of the students that took part on such a wonderful achievement.
