Well done to our Boccia Team who represented the school on Friday 12th October 2018. Here is a message about the event from the organiser Claire – “Our first Inclusion Boccia event for this academic year and a celebration of the School Games Value of ‘Respect’. 10 teams from all over the city came along to Plympton Academy to take part in our friendly Boccia event aimed at children of all abilities and experience. Beechwood, Eggbuckland Vale, Hyde Park, Marine Academy, Mary Dean’s, Old Priory, Plympton St. Maurice, Prince Rock, St. Peters C of E and Yealmpstone Farm all brought along teams to take part in our very relaxed, friendly competition where we play against as many different teams as possible in the time we have. These are always some of my favourite events as it is great to see so many children from different schools enjoying playing but more importantly sharing a mutual respect for each other.
Some of the children who took part today had never played before but we had some young leaders from Plympton Academy who were on hand to guide them through and lead the games. I would like to thank all of the leaders for their help and all of the staff that sent/brought their teams along today – I hope that you all enjoyed watching as much as I did and hope that your teams are keen to come back again.”

Well done to the three children who represented Prince Rock at another Boccia Event. Here is a message from the organiser Claire - "Another fantastic Inclusion Boccia event this afternoon at Plympton Academy. 9 teams from different schools - Montpelier, Old Priory, Eggbuckland Vale, Prince Rock, Marine Academy Primary and Salisbury Road cam along to take part in our friendly Boccia event aimed at primary aged children of all abilities. Some of the children who took part today have been with us on previous occasions and some were completely new to the event. We had some great young leaders from Plympton Academy on hand to show us the ropes/help with the rules and lead the games so no experience is really necessary. I think that I say it after every one of these festivals but they really are some of my favourite events to run: the children always look like they are having so much fun and the staff seem to have a great time enjoying them play – I would encourage anyone to come and have a look if you get the opportunity. I would like to say a big thank you to the leaders today who did a great job running the games."
