On Wednesday 4th October our Year 6 Kurling and Boccia teams took part in the USSP competition at the Lord Butler Leisure Centre. The children were split into two teams, with one taking part in the Kurling tournament and the other in the Boccia tournament. Both teams worked together to discuss their tactics and moves, and worked tremendously well. The final of the Boccia took place with one team playing against RA Butler and successfully winning gold. The final of the Kurling came down to both our St Thomas more teams playing against each other to win gold.
After a very successful morning both teams secured gold in each event, with one team winning silver and gold.
