Sport and being active is a key part of our wellbeing, and that is especially important in these unprecedented times. This is why on 18-22 May 2020, students and their families from The English Montessori School will join their teachers in an Olympics-style global lockdown competition with thousands of students in Cognita schools around the world.
This special and unique event has been pulled together by colleagues from around the Cognita family with the aim of inspiring our school communities to get active, train hard and above all – have fun.
The inaugural ‘Cognita Home Games’ is a series of fun fitness and skills challenges to join in at home. Following the opening ceremony on Monday 18th, students, families and staff will be able to participate in one skill and one fitness based challenge for four days, with the closing ceremony and results announced on Friday 22nd.
The events and standards for medals have already been announced, giving everyone enough time to train and help our school (#TeamTEMS) and region (#TeamEurope) be crowned Game Champions!
To help promote the right spirit for these Games, we have written our Cognita Creed and Cognita Oath, which we hope will help guide our students, families and colleagues on their first Cognita Games journey!
Our teacher Matt will be posting all the information regarding the Cognita Home Games in his wellbeing site: https://sites.google.com/tems.es/physicaleducation/home
