Throughout the term there will be a variety of events in which children, parents and staff can earn points for their team. See below for our list of events, as well as information on the events available for parents and family members to earn points.
This term, to celebrate the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, John F Kennedy School will be hosting an Olympic challenge, organised by our very own former winter Olympian Mrs Katrin Espiasse (Neuenschwander), who runs the school's sports programme.
The goals of this project are:
To involve all of our JFK family - students, staff, parents and the community
To learn about the Olympics - the values, missions and history of the games
To learn about Brazil and Rio - promoting cultural awareness and global understanding in our international community
To compete in different summer sports - trying new things and aspiring to achieve
We are also involving our local community in our project; we have different sponsors for each team and will report our progress in the local press and throughout the area. Thank you to Saanen Bank, Schneeberger Sport, Silver Sport and Chaletbau Matti for all your support.
All the children, staff and teachers are divided into 3 teams to compete in the Olympic Games, Parents can also earn points for their child's team - check out the programme to see how you can contribute to the totals! Please do check which team your child is in so that your team gets the points, you can find the team list in the recent weekly update emails.
We think this is why the Green team have made so much progress.....
AND THE FINAL RESULT IS.............
