The project revolves around the practice of sports activities that:
• Promote better management of free time and leisure, like
indoor and outdoor games.
• Inspire individual motivation and self-improvement, like
swimming, chess or participating in popular races.
• Encourage fellowship and teamwork, like the practice of
group sports such as basketball and football.
Activities focused on self-awareness and emotional expression
were also conducted throughout the year, in addition to relaxation
workshops and individual tutorials; activities that foster
responsibility and independence, like assemblies; activities centred
on hygiene and nutritional education; and activities to instil values.
In order to improve how they socialise and relate to others, the
children participated in activities that promoted interaction with
the environment, like cultural and recreational outings. Integration
and Sport also provided the children with snacks and educational
support and guidance.
Finally, the project included activities with the children and
young people’s families like family outings, assemblies, training
workshops, family sport sessions and more.
The 2015/2016 school year was the fifth year of the Integration and
Sport project, carried out together with SOS Children’s Villages.
This programme focuses on vulnerable children and young people
from Barcelona, Granada and Zaragoza and its main objective is to
contribute to their personal and social development through the
practice of sport and the promotion of healthy habits, including
hygiene, emotional self-control, self-awareness and more.
The IntegrationandSport project also improveshowtheparticipating
children socialise and relate to others, working on aspects such as
conflict resolution, education in values, social abilities and more. It
also promotes family dynamics through guidance, counselling and
awareness-raising among families about caring for and instilling
values in their children.
