Global Montessori Games
The first Global Montessori Games
The first global event in this form for pupils between 12 and 16 years old. Eight Montessori schools from all over the world will come to Montessori College Nijmegen, The Netherlands. A mix of activities (sports, culture and acquaintance) will be offered here.
Each country comes with a team of 12 people and at least 2 supervisors. 72 children are accommodated with host families within our school. Host families will play an important role in conveying Dutch culture and customs.
An event where sports and culture will unite the Montessori world. Sport twins, understanding of the English language is useful, but not necessary. By moving and playing, contacts are made easily. What standards and values do our foreign guests have and what can we learn from each other? This event is about building a peaceful and better world by practicing sports and making new friendships. Pupils, teachers and school leaders alike, will learn more about different countries, and their cultures, by working together and sharing ideas and practices.
This event is not about winning prizes, but about connecting people in a fun way! The aim is to bring the Montessori world together.
‘ The goal of the Olympic Movement is to contribute to building a peaceful and better world by educating youth through sport practiced without discrimination of any kind and in the Olympic spirit, which requires mutual understanding with a spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play.’
