Stanhope Boccia Team
South Tyneside Schools Boccia Finals 2017
On Wednesday 1st March 12 pupils from Y5 and Y6 competed at St. Joseph's RC Academy, Hebburn in the South Tyneside finals.
Our 4 teams competed with fabulous team spirit and sportsmanship against 24 other teams – with the aim of reaching the Tyne and Wear County Finals at the end of the month.
The focus and commitment from our teams was second to none, while they were all very determined to succeed during their games, talking and communicating with one another at a skilled level. Our team 1 and 3 topped their groups to qualify for the semi-finals, while team 2 finished in 2nd place and team 4 in 3rd place within their groups to just miss out on reaching the last 4 knock-out stage.
Here Stanhope 1 were paired against Forest View Primary, they advanced to the final, winning 3-1. In the second semi-final Stanhope 3 played a very competitive match against Harton Primary - they were victorious also winning 2-1.
Therefore both of our teams would meet one another in the grand final! A spectacular achievement for our school and the pupils.
After the first end Stanhope 1 led 1-0, however with the final shot of the match Bakhtawar Hayer (Captain) of Stanhope 3 hit a wonderfully precise shot to secure a 3-1 win for his team.
Well done to everyone that took part on the day and for all of your hard work and time when practising for the competition (it was worth it). The teams consisting of: Stanhope 3 --- Bakhtawar Hayer, Evie Harle and Tyler Thompson (GOLD) and Stanhope 1 --- Kai Muir (Captain), Lucas Dunn and TJ Ridley (SILVER) will now play at the county finals on March 28th.
This promises to be a momentous event for our school, having never previously qualified for a county final. I'm extremely proud.

Tyne and Wear Schools
Boccia Finals 2017
On Tuesday 28th March 12 pupils from Y5 and Y6 competed at Lord Lawson of Beamish School in the Tyne and Wear county finals.
Our 2 teams competed with great focus and determination, wonderful team spirit and sportsmanship against the final 12 teams – with the aim of becoming Tyne and Wear County champions.
The children put into practice all of their training and advice to communicating with one another in order to produce some outstanding shots.
Our team 1, despite winning all of their games missed out on gold, due to the number of points they scored. However team 3 with 3 wins and 1 close defeat were crowned county champions!
This truly is phenomenal – in our first county finals winning and finishing as runners up is tremendous, an unforgettable achievement for our school and the pupils.
Bakhtawar Hayer (Captain) of Stanhope 3 hit a wonderfully precise shot to secure a 3-1 win for his team.
Well done to everyone that took part on the day and for all of your hard work and time when practising for many months before the competition (it was certainly worth every minute).
The teams consisting of: Stanhope 3 --- Bakhtawar Hayer, Evie Harle and Tyler Thompson (GOLD) and Stanhope 1 --- Kai Muir (Captain), Lucas Dunn and TJ Ridley (SILVER).
I'm bursting with pride for all of you.
