Most children in Romania have their first contact with the world of moving and sports within schools. PE teachers are the ones who introduce children to physical activities. But even though PE classes are mandatory for all primary and middle school children, the curricula is outdated and the sporting materials are used for a large number of children and need to be changed on a yearly bases.
In order to reach a large number of children across Romania and have a big impact in the local communities we targeted the biggest 4 geographical regions with the largest number of schools: this way we reached 198 schools and 96 447 children.
During a full school week, all PE teachers held games and contests found in the Kinder + Sport coaching guide, with the focus of making PE classes an enjoyable experience for children of all ages.
We aim to offer children the best sports experience possible, so we offered to all schools participating in the program a sports kit with sporting goods. Through this we are supporting the PE teachers in their endeavours of introducing the children in the world of sports.
Also, we offered all PE teachers a coaching guide, where they can find several games and contests they can use during PE classes, that will attract children to participate and enjoy moving.
