On Tuesday 17th January 2017 the KS2 and KS3/4 Boccia Competitions took place at Duston Sports Centre. The competitions were officiated by Students from Billing Brook School - the students had undertaken an intense training session to prepare and upskill them to officiate both levels of the competition. The leaders did a fabulous job, and this was commented on by many of the staff attending the competition.
It was also encouraging to see more young SEND pupils from mainstream schools participating in the event this year.
