A team of 11 students who are members of Campion’s School Leaders group helped to run the recent Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire Boccia competition involving over 20 teams. Before the event the leaders completed their Boccia Officials qualification and have now also achieved their Bronze Boccia Awards for leadership.
Campion also had a boy’s and a girl’s team competing in the event. For both teams it was their first ever Boccia competition and although initially a little nervous they soon got stuck into the competition. After a full day of matches Campion School finished in third and first place! Medals were awarded by Paralympian Nigel Murray who won a silver medal in Boccia at the 2012 London Olympic Games. It was a great day of competition and the students are looking forward to competing and helping to run this event next year.
