Well done to the three children who represented us at the Boccia Festival on Thursday 25th 2017. Their behaviour was outstanding and we are proud of their efforts.
Here is a write up of the event from the PSSP:
"We were at capacity again this afternoon for our termly Primary Boccia festival for children in mainstream and special schools. We had 12 teams with us today at Tor Bridge High from schools all across the city; Elburton/Riverside/Pomphlett/Wembury/Prince Rock/ EggbuckLand Vale/Keyham Barton and Cann Bridge. This event is designed to be very friendly and relaxed – it is an opportunity for children to try Boccia and play as many games as possible against lots of children from other schools. I am always delighted when we have so many children taking part and enjoying playing and it was amazing to see the young people taking it upon themselves to congratulate the other teams when they won a game. We have a few with us today who had never tried before but they were supported by their team mates and the young leaders running their games. We also had some teams returning who attend regularly and who I think I am going to draft in as young leaders when they come up to us in September. Whatever the experience levels, it was great to look around and see so many smiling faces. I would like to say a huge thank you to Bethan, Reece, Kian, James and Jason (Tor Bridge High Young Leaders) for doing such an amazing job leading the games today – your hard work and enthusiasm was mentioned by several of the primary staff so really well done. Thank you as well to all of the staff that bring their teams along to these events – I hope that you enjoy them as much as I do. Looking forward to seeing you all at our next event on Friday 14th July 2017. - Claire Crowther"
Well done to the children that attended the recent Boccia festival on 30th March 2017. The children showed great teamwork and excellent enthusiasm. We are extremely proud of all of them.
Here is a summary of the event from the PSSP:
"Another fantastic Boccia festival at Tor Bridge High for children in Primary and Special Schools. We had our biggest turn out to date this afternoon with 13 schools from all across the city joining us to play some Boccia. Representing their schools today we had children from St. Peters (RC); Eggbuckland Vale; Riverside; Pomphlett; High Street; Dunstone; Prince Rock; Weston Mill; Victoria Road and Cann Bridge. This event is always very friendly and relaxed – we focus less on the competitive aspect and more on the ‘having a go’ and enjoying it side. I am thrilled that this event seems to grow every time that we run it and we have already filled the bookings for next term! I love that we have a real mixture of our regulars and teams that come along for the first time.
As always we had young leaders on hand from Tor Bridge High to lead the games – they did an incredible job as always. We also had to very special guest umpires with us today – I would like to say a huge thank you to Brogan and Jacob from Cann Bridge School for their support with running the games – we had comments from several of the primary school staff saying how great you were! Well done and thank you to all of our leaders.
If you took part today, I really hope that you enjoyed it as much as I did – I am already looking forward to the next one on Thursday 25th May 2017."
