Pupils combine to win borough competition
Pupils from Scotts Primary School in Hornchurch were crowned boccia champions of Havering at Romford YMCA.
A group of six youngsters, from years one and two, took part in the event against other children from across the borough, including some year six pupils, and ended up in a share of first place at the end of the competition.
That set up a play-off final against RJ Mitchell School, with the A team of Phoebe Harman, Jason Scott-Hennessey and Zachary Deacon holding their nerve to win 2-0 and earn a place at the regional finals in March.
Teddy Monk, Mitchell Thurgood and Blake Barrow also competed for Scotts and PE teacher Katy White said: “All players were impeccably behaved and a credit to the school. It’s a fantastic achievement and they should be very proud of themselves.”
