Iunior and Petranova Schools in their planning include each year a special day dedicated to poetry, arts and crafts, music and sports.
2020 was dedicated to Sports: in our expectations it would have been a beautiful spring day, in which, supported by their gym teachers, our pupils would have spent their day in the gardens of our schools, practicing various sports in games and races.
All this had to be unfortunately put aside to face the emergency that our nation is undergoing due to the risk of diffusion of the Covid-19 virus, rediscovering the value of waiting, of sacrifice, of commitment.
But all the same we decided not to cancel such an important event.
Thanks to the precious cooperation of some important athletes we have organized distance conference meetings with Olympic medal winners to speak with them about sport from a different perspective: not only physical education and exercise, but also the promotion of sports education made of passion, commitment and above all sacrifice, qualities through which the athletes have reached important goals.
The 45minute Live meetings are directed to all families but are thought of and dedicated to the girls and boys of Primary and Middle Schools, the ones who are psychologically suffering the most in this lock down situation in regards to the world and to time: they are not yet independent, in a phase of self discovery and physical consciousness and they find themselves, at the beginning of spring, locked up in the house while the dream for the greater part of them would be that of going out, meeting each other, run, play and enjoy the freedom of movement.
The intent is therefore that of bringing out from these encounters the commitment, the sacrifice and the motivational efforts necessary to go on and win when everything seems to be still.
