Over 200 5th and 6th-grade students participated in the I School Olympics of the Moncloa-Aravaca District in Madrid. This event brought together students from four educational institutions in the district: CEIP Escuelas Bosque, CEIP Rosa Luxemburgo, and the Santo Domingo and Madres Concepcionistas schools.
The participants represented a diverse group of dedicated students ready to enjoy a sporty and enriching experience.
The primary objective of these Olympic Games was to promote sports as a tool for acquiring healthy habits and fostering friendship and camaraderie among educational institutions in the Moncloa-Aravaca district.
The I School Olympics were carried out successfully at the CDM Fernando Martín facilities. Over three days, students immersed themselves in an environment of sportsmanship and teamwork while competing in various sporting disciplines. Individual events included athletics, shot put, speed, and long jump, allowing young athletes to showcase their athletic skills. In addition, team competitions were organized in alternative sports such as bijbol, tchoukball, and fut-beisbol, promoting collaboration and teamwork.
The results achieved went beyond medals and individual accomplishments; they focused on the development of sportsmanship and ethical values in young participants. The district councilor, Loreto Sordo, personally awarded the medals, emphasizing the importance of this initiative as a means to instill fundamental values in the younger generation and highlighting the positive contribution that these games bring to the school community.
