He’s done it!

Treloar’s Patron and former student David Smith becomes the most decorated British Boccia player of all time.
David fell in love with Boccia as a teenager whilst he was at Treloar’s and today – he has fought hard to win Gold at the Tokyo Paralympic Games.
He has competed in the Paralympics since 2008 making his debut in Beijing when he was just 18 years old.
Now 32 and winning in his 4th Paralympic Games, he is a huge advocate for Boccia and a disability sport icon.
Congratulations to David – what an achievement and a glorious finish!
Treloar’s Patron Suzanna Hext also took on the Tokyo Paralympics Games but sadly was forced to withdraw through ill health. She came a valiant 4th in two swimming finals – being pipped to the bronze by just 0.06 seconds!
We are wishing her all the best for a speedy recovery and safe journey home.
