Accessible Boccia Competition

It was a fantastic result for Falmouth School last week, as a group of students headed to the Cornwall Accessible Sports Boccia Competition held at Truro College. On what was a fantastic day, the team came away with bronze medals after securing an impressive third place finish in the county. Boccia is an attack and defend game, with two sides competing over a set number of ends. The aim is to score as many points as possible by placing their set of coloured balls closest to the white jack ball.

With schools from all over Cornwall in attendance, two Falmouth teams entered the competition and were captained by Oliver Bareham and Rita Barker Lyons. Oscar Hunt, Leo Dymond Meakin, Ella Webb, Kaitlyn Muldowney and Kayleigh Walker completed the teams and took part in various activities across the day for the teams, with Oliver’s team securing third place and Rita’s team in fourth. On returning to school, the students were keen to know when the next event was and are now looking at putting together an accessibility football team for a competition next month.

Falmouth School SENCo, Carly Brooker, said “I was incredibly proud of all of them and the determination they showed in attending their first event representing the school.”

We also received some lovely feedback from parents on the event:

“He was extremely anxious the night before, but thoroughly enjoyed himself. He is looking forward to the next event.”

“She is very proud of her certificate and medal and trophy. It is so lovely to hear her speak about a sporting event with such enthusiasm and confidence.”
