EASTERN Hills Senior High School students are the first winners of a new interschool sports championship.

The inaugural Boccia school carnival on Monday was held to encourage sport for athletes with a disability.

WA School Sport and Boccia WA teamed up to organise the event for students from state and independent schools.

After several rounds, Eastern Hills players competed in a close finish to win the Boccia Tournament.

The school’s A-team prizes included a trophy and a set of leather indoor Boccia balls.

Spokeswoman Nerissa Garwell said Eastern Hills students demonstrated excellent sportsmanship throughout the event.
