The unified bocce tournament took place on Sunday the 29th at Rockland High School. This tournament was played by “kids from all across Massachusetts, as well as their special education programs,” said Noelle Atkins, president of Rockland’s Student Government Council. Sixteen Massachusetts high schools took part in the tournament.
Not only was it a good chance for Rockland High students to get community service hours but it was a chance to participate in something truly amazing.
“The unified bocce tournament is a Special Olympics event where kids from all across Massachusetts come together to play bocce with their special education program.” says Atkins.
Many of Rockland’s Pathway students participated.
