Heathcote Deaf pupils go bowling in London Deaf Panathlon

The Heathcote Deaf pupils had a very successful trip to the London Deaf Panathlon competition on Friday 26th January. The event took place at the Romford Rollerbowl centre, where they were in rivalry with deaf pupils from other schools in the London/Essex Deaf Bowling Competition. They were impeccably behaved and worked beautifully as a team, their efforts rewarded as they came away with silver medals!  We were very proud of the way they represented Heathcote.

Panathlon’s deaf programme in London is supported by the City Bridge Trust, the Bulldog Trust and the Ovingdean Hall Foundation. Last year 16 schools competed across the capital as part of the programme.
