Copperbox Arena Trip

On Valentine's evening, 'Tuesday 14th February', 24 Year 5 and 6 pupils from Valence traveled to the Copperbox Arena to see the mighty London Lions Basketball team play against the Manchester Giants. 

This was an award for our school basketball teams excellent results in the 4x4 basketball competition in the Autumn term when Valence's two teams finished 2nd and 3rd respectively in the Barking and Dagenham borough competition. 

Our pupils had an exciting and joyful evening, meeting some of the London Lions basketball players and London Lions Mascot. It was a wonderful opportunity for our pupils to see their heroes in action against excellent opposition. The game was played in a fun and noisy atmosphere which added to the marvelous experience for our pupils. 

Many of our players dream of playing for the London Lions one day and if they continue to work hard and believe in themselves, they can fulfill their dreams!

Thank you to the London Lions for welcoming us to the Copperbox. We hope to go again in the near future.
