The last day of FH’s Sports School was not long ago and over 100 children attended with their parents. There was a sense of adventure leading up to it and Sportacus helped out until the end, spending a lot of time with the kids.
FH’s sports school has been operating since 1995, where it offers 2-5 year old children a varied and purposeful exercise program and an educationally sophisticated schedule that takes into account children’s developmental aspects. “Everyone should find something that suits them,” says school principal Daði Rúnar Jónsson.
“There is no great competition or achievement-related competition expected. Physical education and the promotion of the child’s developmental aspects are a priority. Research has shown that basic training, where emphasis is placed on comprehensive physical and motor development in a socially good and positive environment, has a key meaning for the individual in the future. We at the sports school strive to create such an environment, and with the help of the parents, we are going to achieve the set goal.”
“Parents watch in the sports school, there is enough space for parents to come and watch their children, where special emphasis is placed on parents being active in play and work” says Daði Rúnar. School starts again after the end of the year on Saturday, January 9 in Kaplakrika.
