SLD Schools boccia competition

Date : 14-Jan-2014

A good time was had by all when the six Hertfordshire SLD schools took part in the annual boccia competition on Tuesday 14th, January 2014.

Teams consisted of both seasoned players and those who were trying the sport for the first time. With up to 5 players in each squad, all schools brought 2 teams, resulting in the games being played in 2 pools.

Final positions resulted in Amwell View A winning Pool A, with Breakspeare School winning Pool B. Amwell View B team were placed in 4th position.

Congratulations to all players for an event played in the best of spirit. Special congratulations to the Amwell View School team comprising of Mitchell, Alex F, Bradley, Scott, Susannah and Andre.

None of this would have been possible without the loan of the sports hall facilities and sports leaders by Presdales School, Ware, and sports leaders from both Pinewood and Richard Hale Schools, who all ensured the competition ran smoothly.
