SWISH – Wheelchair Basketball & Frame Football for Secondary School Students

Aġenzija Żgħażagħ and the Maltese Olympic Committee, in collaboration with the Physical Education Department within the Directorate for Learning and Assessment Programmes and Frame Football Malta, are offering Inclusive Sports Training sessions called Swish for Years 9, 10 & 11. Qualified coaches from the Malta Olympic Committee and Frame Football Malta will run a practice session through which students will be given the opportunity to experience a different dimension of sport. After each practice session, students will also benefit from a life skills session focusing on inclusion delivered by a youth worker from Aġenzija Żgħażagħ. All necessary equipment will be available to each school before the practice sessions.

Schools are to appoint a contact person (details to be included in the booking form). Aġenzija Żgħażagħ will communicate with the indicated person to make the necessary arrangements. Sessions will be delivered between Tuesday and Friday and are 80 minutes long (2 consecutive lessons). Tuesdays and Thursdays will be dedicated to wheelchair basketball, while Wednesdays and Fridays for frame football. Schools can also avail of multiple sessions, for different groups of students, on the same day or different sessions on different days. Availability is on a first-come, first-served basis, and bookings are to be made through the following link.

Aġenzija Żgħażagħ will be in touch with the link person three days before the booked date to re-confirm all the arrangements. Further information about the sessions can be found on the Information Leaflet.

Fun Fit Football Sessions

During this scholastic year all learners in the primary schools will be benefiting with more physical activity sessions through the Fun Fit Football Sessions (FFF), similar to the FFF programmes held during the last scholastic year. These sessions, in collaboration with the Malta Football Association, will be focusing on the need for more physical activity amongst our school learners, whilst facilitating the pathway from school to community to foster continued involvement in football and sport.

The Fun Fit Football sessions will have special focus on the development of motor skills and not only football-specific technical skills, and which will be inclusive to all school learners, boys and girls, with the participation of both class teachers and LSEs. Considering that the FFF sessions are extra/supplementary sessions, it is important that the FFF sessions shall not interrupt, disrupt or replace PE lessons. This will ensure that the PE lessons are delivered according to the timetable. In few weeks’ time schools will be informed of their schedule and their assigned Football Region Coordinator and football coaches. Any queries can be put forward to Mr. Marvin Spiteri via email at marvin.spiteri@ilearn.edu.mt.

NHAR IL-ĠIMGĦA 14 T’OTTUBRU is-Sur Jamie Muscat, għalliem tal-edukazzjoni fiżika, mexxa żewġ sessjonijiet ta’ logħob organizzat fuq it-turf fl-okkażjoni tal-European Sports Week. Iż-żewġ gruppi kienu magħmula mit-tfal tal-ewwel snin tal-primarja u mit-tfal tal-aħħar snin tal-primarja. Dawn ħadu gost jilagħbu diversi logħbiet ippreparati għalihom fi stazzjonijiet differenti taħt il-gwida tas-Sur Jamie u l-għalliema tagħhom. L-entużjażmu tagħhom kien jixhed l-impenn li wrew dawn it-tfal u anke l-gost li ħadu b’din l-esperjenza.

Dan minbarra ż-żewġ brejks li fihom it-tfal ikollhom aċċess għal waħda mill-erba’ btieħi tal-iskola tagħna.
