FITS Day in ZSO!

On Wednesday, June 5th we organized a FITS Day in our school – Zespół Szkół Ogólnokształcących in Nidzica. On this beautiful, sunny day, participants of “Facilitating Inclusion Through Sports” Erasmus+ project took over the school sports facilities to present the project, its achievements and the Erasmus+ programme in general not only to our own school community, but also to our visitors – mainly students and teachers from other local schools in Nidzica and its surroundings. Members of school rugby, floor hockey and cheerleading teams, that were created in our school as a result of the project, presented their sports to the public and encouraged our guests to try them – everyone had plenty of fun 😊 Members of FITS Club introduced the objectives and framework of FITS project to the visitors. We were also honoured with the visit of Mr Marcin Paliński, the head of our municipal government, and Mr Ryszard Kumelski, the member of the Regional Council. It was a great chance to promote the project and Erasmus+ programme to our local and regional community and decision-makers.

Rugby workshop and friendly game with guests from Special Needs Educational Center!

On Monday, 3rd June ZSO and members of FITS project were once again visited by a group of students from the Special Needs Educational Center (Specjalny Ośrodek Szkolno-Wychowawczy im. Ks. Jana Twardowskiego), along with their PE teacher, Mr Jacek Zieliński, for a tutorial and a friendly game of one of the project’s sports – rugby.

During the meeting, led by the members of  FITS Club, our guests learned the basic rules of TAG (non-contact) rugby, practiced proper passing techniques (individually and in teams) and rules of basic gameplay. The workshop ended with a short scrimmage between the mixed teams of our  guests and FITS members. Everyone had a lot of fun and our guests expressed the hope to work together and in the future 😊
