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.
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
