On Friday 18 January Conisborough College hosted the Lord Taverner’s Boccia Event.
Boccia is a disability sport where players aim to propel balls close to a target ball. At Friday’s event, two sides competed as teams of five or six over a set number of ends.
Points are then calculated over the course of a match. A ball can be rolled, thrown or kicked. If a player is unable to throw or kick the ball, they can use a ramp. Year 5 and 6 students attended from different primary schools in Lewisham and the day was led by the Year 9 Sports Crew. It was a hugely successful event and one which we will be hosting again in the near future.
