Calne pupils get a taste of paralympic sport

Students from John Bentley School gained their first taste of Paralympic sport at a competitive level during the South West Regional Boccia Championships.

Boccia, which became a Paralympic sport in 1984, is a non-contact sport similar to bowls where players aim to throw their balls as close as possible to the target.

Three students at the school competed against 12 other teams in Exeter to win tenth place overall.
