On 7th February 2017 the small class of 8N began their boccia tournament at St Mary’s Sports College in Hull. For those of you who have no experience with the term Boccia; Boccia is a precision ball sport, not unlike bowls and pétanque and it’s performed by competitors with physical disabilities.
Their road to success started when Miss Harrison organised for 8N class to visit St Mary’s Sports College and compete against 4 different schools on a regional level, accompanied by Mr Hall and Miss Leigh. They competed in 2 different matches and shone through, winning, in each one.
The competition enhanced confidence, teamwork, and leadership skills in everyone who took part said that they were surprised about how much they enjoyed participating in a new and interesting sport that they’d never heard of. I think that everybody will agree when I say that we are very proud of 8N for achieving so much in this competition.
