Tuesday the 7th of December saw 7 Primary Schools descend on St Joseph’s School to take part in our first ever Boccia festival. Related to Bowls and Petanque, Boccia is an inclusive sport that plays out in a similar way to Bowls with participants aiming to bowl to get as close to the jack as possible.
Teams are made up of three players with each player bowling twice and with each School bringing 2 teams it was a non-stop 2 hours of competitive play with every child totally focused on their respective matches. With the clock ticking on and after 20 matches completed we arrived at the gripping final between St Patrick’s and Beckstone which Beckstone edged by a few centimetres!
As ever, organiser and Sports Development Officer Mr Wise was elated at the outcome; “Boccia is a wonderful Sport and it was so good to see these primary school children enjoying themselves whilst competing”. “As this was our first Boccia event I was a little nervous at how it would be received but the children absolutely loved it and with our year 8 leaders hosting the event so adeptly my worries were very much allayed”.
Our next festival will be key stage 1 Dodgeball in January.
Tuesday the 16th of November saw 7 Schools, 14 teams and 112 children descend on St Joseph’s School sports hall for our first ever year 3 and 4Benchball competition. In what was the first taste of School representation and competitive action for most children the event turned out to be everything that we had hoped for. The sheer energy, sportsmanship, teamwork, competitiveness and skill on show was something to behold with the added bonus of expert leadership, officiating and organisation from our year 9 sports leaders.
Organiser and Sports Development Officer Mr Wise could not hide his delight; “I am sure that this was one of the best events we have ever held here”. “It was full of so many of the things that are so good about sport and it was played with so many smiles on the faces of the children taking part”. “The pandemic has denied this age group the opportunities that were afforded to the children before them and their pure joy and enthusiasm at taking part was very clear to see”.
The event came to a thrilling climax as Beckstone and St Gregory’s fought out a “next one wins” final with Beckstone taking the prize with an amazing throw and catch.
Our next event will be a BOCCIA competition on Tuesday the 7th of December.
