Boccia

 

Brilliant Boccia Festival

 

Clockhouse took two sides to the Havering Boccia Festival last week. The teams were given letters to make it easier to identify each team. Clockhouse were given A & F.

 
The results for the group matches were:
F
Won 3-1 vs Hylands
Won 2-1 St Peters
Won 3-2 Newtons
Won 4-0 Scotts

 
A
Won 2-1 vs Drappers
Drew 1-1 vs Scotts
Lost 2-0 vs St Peters
Lost 3-0 vs Newtons
 
As a result Clockhouse F finished 4th overall in the standings while Clockhouse A finished 6th once results were combined.
 
Reflecting on the festival Mr Yarrow said 'Boccia is one of my favourite events in the sporting calendar. Pupils engaged with children from other schools & also get to compete in a fun environment!
 
All of the children did the school proud! Team Greenland were unlucky not to progress further having won so many matches. Denzel was full of energy and played some fantastic shots on his debut, and special mention to Leon W leading the side in his final appearance. Leon has had years of experience and will be very missed. Thank you to all the parents and Mrs Jackson for supporting the event! Well done team Clockhouse!'
 
TEAM: Leon W, Elliot R, Toby A, Teddy O and Denzel A

 

 

 

Clockhouse do brilliantly at Boccia

 

For the first time Clockhouse Primary School entered two teams into the Havering Borough Boccia Tournament. Boccia is a precision ball sport similar to bowls. The sport is contested at local, national and international levels, by athletes with physical / learning disabilities. It was originally designed to be played by people with cerebral palsy but now includes athletes with other disabilities affecting motor skills. In 1984, it became a Paralympic sport, and in 2008 was being practised in over fifty countries worldwide.

 

Team A played 6 games winning 3 out of 6 while Team B won 5 of 7. The results meant Clockhouse finished 3rd and 4th in the tournament. This is a huge success for the school to have two teams working so well and achieving great results! But the children taking part did the school proud!!!!

 

WELL DONE TEAM CLOCKHOUSE!!!!

 

Team A - Elizabeth A, Leylan S, Leon W

 

Team B - Harley H, Jeffery S, Elliot R
