We believe children have to be active every day. Physical activity stimulates growth and leads to improved physical and emotional health.
This Wednesday Ivy School held the sports competition. The event officially started with the Flag Raising Ceremony. Kindergarten students had the honor. Kids demonstrated high organization and discipline. After the presentation from hosts and an encouraging speech from a foreign teacher the classes performed their dances in perfect lines and showed excellent skills. Both teachers and students combined their efforts to show unity and strength. The program continued with the Taekwondo performance where we could observe all the beauty of martial arts and high level of physical training. A healthy body creates healthy mind and soul.
The show was also brightened up by the performance of wonderful cheerleaders, who enhanced the atmosphere of joy and celebration.
The main part of the event was dedicated to fun sports activities where parents and children could compete and enjoy their time, communicate with each other, and maintain the festive mood.
Sports let children learn the sense of belonging to a group. They learn to build a friendship among their teammates. They can learn to develop leadership and teamwork skills. Children can develop positive body image and self-esteem. They learn to be conscious about how they look, the way they should behave and even change their habits for better.
