About  the „ Christmas Cup”  – Project „S.M.I.L.E.” sport activity.

On the 12.12.2015. in the sport hall „Mēmele”  there were annual sport game competition -  „ Christmas Cup”.

Usually in this competition take part national dance groups from all Latvia. This year more than 20 dance groups took part in”Christmas Cup”. Bauskas State Gymnasium also had a team in the  „Christmas Cup” that consisted of  students involved in the Erasmus+ Project  „S.M.I.L.E.”. Aim for this competition is to inform our peers about active and healthy lifestyle, why is it so important to have a healthy and balanced nutrition and which are the most popular sports in Latvia.

The most important thing in this competition is doing sports together . There were 6 different tasks that every team had to do. Every team consisted of 5 boys and 5 girls.

 We played floorball and basketball together with our peers. One of the  favourite task was inflatable attraction, were teams had to run through. Teams` skills were tested also in other tasks, which we had already learnt in the primary school.

Much work in the task making invested Bauskas State Gymnasium sport teacher Ivars Prīsis. Voluntary students from our school also helped with organizing the competition.


Tthe main goal for the „Christmas Cup” was to educate our generation about active lifestyle, and we can assure, that we achieved it!
