This week, Team Stocksbridge were taking part in a Boccia and Kurling festival at the High School. Boccia is a Paralympic sport that can be played by anyone. It is played with balls of different weights and is easy for a beginner to pick up quickly, but builds in intensity and complexity as players hone their skills. Kurling is a form of the original curling game, but adapted so that it can be played indoors on any smooth, flat surface, such as a sports hall, rather than on ice. Players slide stones towards a target area of circles and which is definitely harder than it looks!

We had a fantastic evening thank you to Nikki and her team of Sports Leaders with lots of smiles and fun! Well done to everyone who took part, you did our school proud.
