Boccia Community Event

Manorcroft was once again delighted to host the Kumon Y’all Boccia Event. Boccia is a para Olympic sport similar to bowls. Manorcroft’s newly appointed Prefect Team helped to welcome the guests into school, including the local MP, Mark Eastwood.

The teams represented a variety of community organisations including: Masjid As-Salaam, Cohesion Kirklees, Housing 21, Kirklees Council, the Jo Cox ‘Great Get Together’ and the delicious food was sponsored by World Care. Manorcroft submitted 3 teams, Girls Prefects, Boy Prefects and the Staff Team. The girls team was the best of the school teams, winning 2 out of their 3 games, but unfortunately, they did not make it through to the final, which was won by the ladies from the Care Home.

There was of course a serious matter to the evening. It was an opportunity for groups and individuals from our diverse local community to come together, enjoy each other’s company and friendship, have fun and share delicious food. We listened to community representatives speak and echo the important words of Jo Cox:  ‘We have far more in common than that which divides us’.

We look forward to hosting the event again next year.
