– Introduction of previously unknown sports. For example, we were the first to introduce swimming lessons, rhythmic gymnastics or judo into the school timetable.
-Promotion of sport as an extracurricular activity through the creation of different schools.
Moreover, at Casvi, the union between sport and education goes even further. “Sport is a fundamental tool for modelling the profile of the International Baccalaureate in our students. In this way, we turn them into balanced, daring, open-minded, caring, upright people…”, says Juan Luis Yagüe, headmaster of this school.
Sport fosters social skills through teamwork and self-management skills in the acquisition of healthy habits.
Driven by the search and detection of sporting talent as one more Multiple Intelligence, the Physical Education sessions that Casvi pupils have every week are joined by two Swimming sessions. These take place in their heated aquatic facilities. And this takes place from the First Cycle of Infant Education onwards. From their first year of life, they enter into the cultivation of mind, body and soul to achieve balance, one of the maxims of the International Baccalaureate methodology followed in our school.
In this sense, the practice and knowledge of different sports is also encouraged from an early age. From the most traditional to the most innovative and from different parts of the world. Clear examples of this are disciplines such as lacrosse, ultimate, kin-ball, korfball, ripela, Gaelic football, colbol…
Sport and education also continue to be linked in the after-school hours. This is when our different schools are developed: basketball, swimming, synchronised swimming, rhythmic gymnastics, indoor football and football 7-a-side.
Casvi Football Academy is a Professional Football School that is integrated as a perfect whole in our school. The aim is to promote the learning of this sporting discipline. Also, to foster leadership skills; to stimulate teamwork; to improve self-esteem; social relations; and even to help to be more productive.
Casvi Football Academy is the right place for a new link between Sport and Education. The place where young people from all over the world have the opportunity to combine their sporting growth towards a professional level, with a quality education that promotes those same skills in their classrooms. “And all thanks to our working methodology promoted by the International Baccalaureate Organisation,” concludes Juan Luis Yagüe.
