National Sport Events
On the occasion of the Olympic Day, the international celebration which is held the 23th June to promote healthy and active lifestyles, all partners will celebrate it with the whole school and the local community.
The aim is not only to encourage students and teachers to have fun and enjoy being active: for schools, it is also an opportunity to highlight the education themes of Olympism which are the joy of effort, fair play, respect for others, pursuit of excellence and balance between body, will and mind.
Olympic Day encourages students to demonstrate these themes through participation in physical activities.
The school will award Olympic Day Certificates to students demonstrating the Olympic Team Values of Inspiration, Sportsmanship, Pride, Individual Responsibility, Respect and Express Yourself.
The day before, the 22nd June, a conference will be organised for the presentation of the “Olympism at School: a Practical Guide for Secondary School Teachers” produced by the project.
The Olympic Day will be primarily adressed to Students; Teachers; Headmasters; Youth Workers/Educators; Sports Trainers and Coaches.
It will be based on five pillars: Move, Learn, Discover, Invite and Share.
– Move. It can refer to all sorts of physical activities for people of all ages and abilities from Olympic Day Fun-Runs to individual and team sports;
– Learn. Olympic Day is a great opportunity to learn about the Olympic values and look at the contribution of sport to global social issues that can affect our community. Being a responsible citizen is also part of the Olympic philosophy.
– Discover. This pillar is about people trying new sports and activities that they have never done before.
– Invite. A local Olympian or sports Star will be invited to our Olympic Day.
– Share. Olympic Day is a great way to share our ideas and celebrate within our school community but also beyond.
