Team EPJS Take Honours at Boccia Festival
On the morning of Wednesday 24th November, normal lessons were interrupted for a small group of children in order to compete in the School Games Organisation's Boccia Festival. Two teams of 2 children from EPJS comprised part of 12 teams from 6 schools across the West Sussex area.
The children played in a marathon tournament that involved over 30 games and came down to a nail biting tie-breaker—which Summer and Sam clinched for EP.
Miss Pye, who took the children to the Angmering School sports hall said, “Everyone played well as a team celebrating each others successes.”
Sam said, “I felt really nervous when the results were being read out but was so excited when I heard we had won first place.”
Amber added, “It was really fun. There were lots of schools competing, so it was a real challenge."
"I have never played Boccia before but I really enjoyed it!” said Toby
"I feel really proud about how well EPJS did and I would love to play Boccia again,” Summer said.
They all agreed that they played as a team and got the results.
Thanks to Mr Jenner and his team for organising the event; Miss Pye and Mr Tidd for taking the children, and to all of the children that took part in this event without whom it could not happen.
