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 😊

“Everyone Can Do It – Modern dance and Cheerleading!” in Vratsa!

The 3rd Learning/Teaching/Training event of the Erasmus+ „Facilitating Inclusion Through Sports” began on 19th November 2018 in Vratsa, Bulgaria.

The first day of the mobility started with the opening ceremony, during which the project participants were welcomed by the head teacher of the hosting school, Mrs Irma Emiliyanova, and the project team led by Mr Ivailo Papov. The students then presented their schools, towns and countries. This was followed by the presentation of the Bulgarian students on the subject of the history of dance. Next, the students were divided into international teams for the purpose of teambuilding and ice-breaking activities. They also had the chance to visit the hosting school. In the afternoon the students participated in the first workshop teaching them the basics of modern dance. For the final activity of the day, FITS members visited the Regional Historical Museum in Vratsa.

20.11.2018. The second day of mobility in Bulgaria was devoted to getting to know history and culture of our Bulgarian partner. For this reason we went on a day trip to the capital city, Sofia. During the walking tour, we visited one the biggest churches in Bulgaria – St. Alexander Nevski Cathedral, the oldest building in Sofia – St. George Rotunda, Ivan Vazov National Theatre and many other places historically and culturally important to our hosts. We could also try some typical national cuisine which was delicious 🙂

21.11.2018. The third day of our LTT event started with a cheerleading dance workshop for students, during which they practiced their cheerleading and baton-twirling routines. Next, students and teachers climbed the hill to Hijata, overlooking the town of Vratsa. After lunch there was another dancing workshop for students – this time focused on Zumba. The teachers taking part in the LTT also visited and learned about the workings of the Resource Centre in Vratsa, that does a wonderful job helping students with special needs.

22.11.2018. Another busy day started with a cheerleading dance workshop for students, during which they practiced their cheerleading routines. After the workshop and lunch in a beautifully situated Chaika Restaurant, students and teachers visited Ledenika Cave, a natural wonder, located in the territory of Vrachanski Balkan Natural Park. The walk in the cave began with the hall called Anteroom, next the Large Concert Hall was reached in order to watch spectacular “Sound and Light Show” – audio and light choreography, as well as “The water show” – five-minute projection on a water screen. FITS members could also admire naturally formed rock formations resembling figures of “a giant”, “a falcon”, “The house of Baba Yaga” etc. The walk ended with the Lake of Wishes which is believed to make visitors’ wishes come true

23.11.2018 was the final day of our Learning/Teaching/Training event „Everyone Can Dance” in Vratsa. All the participants gathered for a final performance and presentation of what they have learned during the LTT. They performed two dancing routines to a gathered audience, receiving a great round od applause. Afterwards, everybody received their certificates and gifts from our hosts.
Unfortunately, our adventure in Vratsa has come to an end. Great thanks to our hosts for the entire week!
