Boccia day at Treloar School
On Thursday 21st September, our lovely friends from Angmering School from West Sussex came to Treloar School for a day of Boccia fun. The last time they visited us was before the Covid pandemic!
Our brand new Boccia Squad took on the students from Angmering and together played some excellent Boccia.
Whilst the day was very busy with seven matches played, the students from both schools were able to socialise with each other as well as play competitive Boccia.
Fun was had by all and they promised to visit us again in the new year!
