On Wednesdays, students from the 3rd and 4th grades of schools in Olhão play human football, the Greek scarf game, the stretch game, the game of mata, or the game of bases, thanks to the project “School Sport – Todos Jogam”, which was launched by the Municipality and by the council's groups, at the beginning of the school year.
As explained by the Chamber of Olhão, there was "the need to increase the number of hours devoted to physical activity by the youngest".
After the initial phase of registration and organization of groups, the activities began in November, and cover about 200 students, spread over eight centers, operating at EB1/JI N.º1, EBI/JI JCM (Nº7), EB1/JI No.4, Municipal Pavilion, EB1/JI No.6, EB1/JI of Cavalinha, EB1/JI of Fuseta and EB1/JI of Moncarapacho.
"Thus, every Wednesday, 3rd and 4th grade students have the opportunity to participate in various activities, such as human football, Greek scarf game, stretch game, grassroots game, kill game, speed and endurance" , explains the municipality.
Throughout the school year, meetings are also being held between the different sports nuclei, «where the children have the opportunity to dispute all these games between the various teams, having been held, so far, four meetings».
All nuclei will have at least one meeting outside their school and one meeting at their school.
At the end of the school year, the activities will be closed at the Municipal Stadium, «where children will have the opportunity to play the games they have learned, socialize and foster a sporting spirit and fair play», emphasizes the Municipality of Olhão.
This project still has some vacancies open, so interested students can get information from their Physical Education teacher.
