On Friday 21st April 2017, Ratcliffe School hosted the third annual Boccia Tournament to be held within the Dawlish Learning Partnership. Children from schools across the Partnership came together to play Boccia in a friendly competition.
Boccia is an inclusive seated bowling game and involves two teams playing against each other to bowl their balls as close to the ‘jack’ as possible.
The event proved to be a very positive experience for all teams involved and all pupils seemed to enjoy the calm, relaxed atmosphere associated with the game, with the ‘knock out’ competition adding some excitement to proceedings.
In total, 8 teams took part representing Ratcliffe, Cockwood, Westcliff, Kenn, Starcross, Kenton, & Exminster Primary Schools.
The team from Exminster successfully showed their skills in teamwork, cooperation and tactics but were eventually pipped at the post by Kenn who won for the 2nd year in a row.
Well done to all four children who attended.
