11 pupils from Alford Academy took part in a Boccia Festival in Aberdeen on Wednesday 8th May. They played 6 matches against a number of different teams from schools across Aberdeenshire and Aberdeen city. The pupils supported each other throughout the morning and all had several good shots, with many of them being match-winning ones. 1 of the 4 Alford teams managed to win all 6 of their matches – well done to Joe, Isabella and Ben for that fantastic achievement!
The other teams all won their fair share of matches and were complemented several times by the umpires on the accuracy of their shots. The pupils were polite and friendly with their opponents and were very helpful throughout the Festival. Well done to all involved – and a big thanks to Sport Aberdeen & Active Schools Aberdeenshire for hosting the event. We’re already looking forward to the next event in the Autumn.
