Tournament Result – Monday 29th January – KS2 Boccia Championships Heats
Earlier today, Whitemoor took part in the annual Key Stage 2 Boccia tournament - which it turns out was the first time we'd ever entered this event!
Boccia is an established Paralympic Sport, however the children who competed in today's event didn't need to have a physical disability in order to selected. Instead the focus of our team selection was centred around those who do not usually get chance to take part in mainstream competitions.
Due to the popularity of Boccia among primary schools in the City, there were two separate heats organised, with only the top 8 schools going through to the grand finals.
Both of teams played superbly well and won the majority of their games. In fact, one of Whitemoor's teams played so well that they qualified for the finals (in a few weeks time)!
Our two Boccia Championship teams consisted of: Marques S, Sarah H, Keltoum K, Lewis N, Ali C, Mariam R, Alessandro C, Anas I, Aimee K and Dominic A.
