Boccia

Boccia Event

 

The children had a wonderful afternoon at the Boccia event based at Tor Bridge today. It was fantastic to see the children enjoying being active and trying a new sport!

 

 

Here is a message from the organiser of the event:

 

“A great afternoon of Inclusion Boccia at Tor Bridge High today. 8 teams from PSSP schools came along to take part in our friendly Boccia event aimed at children of all abilities and experience.

 

Today we had representatives from Elburton, Pomphlett, Cann Bridge, St. Paul’s, Oreston and Prince Rock.

 

On arrival the children were greeted by our fantastic team of Young Leaders – Cory, Jamie-Leigh, Daisy and Bella.

 

Some of the players today had never played before, so they were given some instruction by the leaders and then it was straight into some games. This friendly competition is an opportunity for all of the schools to meet new people and have some fun playing Boccia. We also use this event as an opportunity to celebrate the School Games value of Determination: we spoke about the importance of practicing and everyone agreed that the more they played, the better they were becoming.

 

I would like to say a huge thank you to our leaders, who once again helped to make this event so enjoyable for everyone. I hope that you all enjoyed the event today and I look forward to seeing you all at another Inclusion event very soon.”

The children had a brilliant time at the Boccia event this afternoon. They had a great time meeting new teams and taking part in friendly competition with them.

 

 

Here is a message from the organiser of the event:

 

“A fantastic turn out for one of our Inclusive Boccia event this afternoon. 12 teams from PSSP schools came along to Tor Bridge High to take part in our friendly Boccia event aimed at children of all abilities and experience.

 

Prince Rock, St. Budeaux Foundation, Leigham, Cann Bridge, Drake, Eggbuckland Vale, Oreson and Widewell all brought teams along 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 some of my favourite events to run as it is fantastic seeing all of the children smiling while trying something new and meeting new people. As always at these events, I had a great team of young Sports Leaders from Tor Bridge High on hand to lead the games – you all did a brilliant job, thank you!

 

Thank you as well to all of the staff who brought their teams along – I hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did. I look forward to seeing you all at our next Inclusive event after half term.”

Well done to the three children who represented Prince Rock at a Boccia Event on Tuesday 8th October 2019. It was fantastic to see them working so hard together and show great sportsmanship towards other teams.

Well done Prince Rock!

 

 

Here is a message from the organiser of the event:

 

"Our first Inclusive Boccia event for this academic year and celebration of the School Games Value of ‘Determination’. 11 teams from PSSP schools came along to Plympton Academy to take part in our friendly Boccia event aimed at children of all abilities and experience. St. Budeaux Foundation, The Cathedral School, Mary Dean’s, Elburton, Cann Bridge, Salisbury Road, Yealmpstone Farm, Prince Rock and Marine Academy Primary all brought teams along 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. Throughout the event I was able to talk to different teams and we discussed the importance of determination.

 

Everyone agreed that the more they played, the better they became so it was a real testament to never giving up and practicing. 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."
