Through Sports we learn to live
Team sports are an essential tool for achieving our motto, “Learn to Live”. This kind of activities give our students the opportunity of learning team work. It also helps accomplish all IB profile attributes and all the essential elements needed for an effective development of our curriculum and educate young people with discipline, autonomy and with physical and emotional health.
Since students are three years old, they start developing basic motor patterns through several pillars: identity and interactions, movement composition, games, challenges and adventure, physical activity and health. Besides, many sport practices extend to Secondary School (MYP and DP), with age-adjusted programs that take into consideration the individual development of each student.
