Inclusive Boccia

Three of our Key Stage 2 children had a fantastic time on Friday 10th December representing our school for a Boccia event at one of the city's Secondary Schools. Here is a message from the event organiser:

 

"We had 5 teams along this morning for our PSSP Primary Inclusion Boccia at Plympton Academy. Teams from St. Matthew’s, Holy Cross, Widewell, St. Mary’s and Prince Rock all came along to take part in our festive, friendly Boccia event, aimed at children of all ages and abilities. Christmas jumpers were encouraged today and there were some great ones! For some of the children attending today, this was their first experience of Boccia but we were extremely lucky to have a fantastic team of young leaders from Plympton Academy on hand to teach us the ropes and referee our games. Once we have run through the basics, we just play as many games as we can in the time and play as many other schools as possible. With some Christmas songs in the background, everyone was in high spirits today and I for one had a great time! These are always some of my favourite events as it is so great to see so many children learning new skills and enjoying playing sport. Well done to everyone who took part today, I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did. I am already looking forward to seeing you in the new year for some more PSSP Inclusion events.

Well done to three of our fantastic children who took part in today's Boccia event. Here is a message from the event organiser: 

Tuesday 19th October 2021 – Another brilliant morning at Tor Bridge High today for our PSSP Primary Inclusion Boccia event. We had 8 teams participating today in our friendly Boccia event, aimed at children of all abilities and experience. Prince Rock, Holy Cross, Cann Bridge, Eggbuckland Vale and Pennycross all brought teams along to take part in our 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 Tor Bridge High on hand to guide them through and lead the games. I would like to say a huge thank you to the Sports Leaders for all of their help and enthusiasm, you were fantastic today! Thank you to all of the teachers and the teams that came along, I hope you all enjoyed it and would be keen to come back again. Our next Boccia event is on Friday 10th December, I hope to see you there.
