Inspirational Boccia

Groups of its students attended the Paralympics every day throughout the Games and were inspired by the achievements of all the athletes.

Josh, 15, a member of the School Regional Boccia team after having watched Boccia at the Excel Centre, said: “Wow, that was brilliant. I want to be as good as them one day.”

And Tash, 16, thought Ellie Simmonds was “awesome”.

The school’s director of sport Jo Eames said: “Because we are a lead school in the Get Set Education Programme co-ordinated by LOCOG, the students had a keen interest in the Olympics and Paralympics – and to see the fantastic achievements made by our disabled athletes at the Olympic Park had a great and long lasting impact.
