Integrating sport, leisure and other activities within the framework of the school priorities could be something that bring pupils together inside and outside the classroom. A closer collaboration with the local sport and recreational associations, the participation of ALL students in common activities (regardless the gender and the cultural backgrounds), correctly trained, well informed and aware teaching staff, the promotion of an healthy lifestyle will lead to the achievement of the common needs and goals of the three schools participating in the IMTI project: the development of an inclusive secondary school that promotes physical and mental wellbeing through sports and leisure activities in cooperation with local youth recreational centres and local sports clubs. Furthermore physical activity has been proven to provide multiple benefits in the school context, such as better concentration, enhanced cognitive performance and better academic achievement.
The general objective is to create an inclusive secondary school that promotes physical and mental wellbeing through sports and leisure activities in cooperation with local youth recreational centers and local sports clubs.
Through the project activities, we will promote the participation/inclusion of pupils with different social, ethnical and economical backgrounds. Furthermore, students and teaching staff will increase their awareness on parallel issues related to sport and physical activities, such as sustainability, mental well-being, healthy food consumption, cultural diversity and international exchange. We will therefore support, through capacity building workshops, teaching staff to gain new competences that will be then transferred to students. Integrating sport, and leisure activities within the framework of the school priorities could be something that bring pupils together outside the classroom.
