A different sports festival
The Fund for Innovations supported a different sports festival at 7th High School “Sv. Sedmochislenitzi”, Sofia.
The special feature of this festival is that it is related to the Olympic idea: conducting preliminary rounds in several sports and preliminary preparation for part of the activities that take place in the real Sporting Sofia 2000 sports facilities and in the Hall of the Active Sports Club of the Vassil Levski National Stadium.
Linking the sports festival with intra-school tournaments, the inclusion of the Student Council and students from the National Sports Academy in its organization, holding the competitions in modern sports facilities, the “expansion” of the territory of school competitions to the Olympic Movement, makes it different from the festivals so far conducted. The aim is to expand sports activities in schools by involving lecturers and students from the National Sports Academy in the preparation of the festival; by inclusion and promotion of the Olympic idea of caring for the harmonious and noble advancement of young people and in support of Sofia - European Capital of Sports 2018.
On May 11 – the festive day of 7th High School, after an official ceremony, the sports festival “My School Olympic Day” will open with a mini gymnastic composition, followed by the finals of the tournaments in volleyball, basketball, football, table tennis, and other games, a conversation about the Olympic Movement and the awarding of winners and those students who actively participated in the preliminary and final competitions.
