Boccia Champions undefeated!
On Wednesday Southview were asked to compete in the Essex Schools games Boccia Competition held at the Columbus School in Chelmsford. We took two teams to compete against teams from Columbus and Lexden Springs schools. Both teams played exceptionally well, playing shots within centimetres of the jack! There was also some tactical play going on led by captains Lori and Alex!
By the end of the competition both teams had won all their games and were waiting for the scores to be finalised. Everyone was delighted when Southview were announced to be the winners of the Essex schools games! Every team player received a medal presented by Richard Chiassaro (British paralympian) and the school has another trophy which will be displayed proudly in our cabinet.
We hope to organise more regular Boccia matches with some of the schools in the near future.
Congratulations to all the team and staff that supported them, it was a really fun and successful day!
