Sport plays an essential role in the all-round education of our students, not only with regard to the improvement of physical condition, but also as a means by which fundamental ethical principles such as respect, determination, tolerance, cooperation, discipline, effort and teamwork can be introduced and developed. Our sports teachers are highly qualified and experienced professionals who help students develop their individual physical talents and abilities, in addition to teaching them the skills and strategies necessary to work as part of a team.
O Castro British School has excellent sporting facilities, including a football pitch, basketball, handball and tennis courts, an indoor sports hall, a psychomotor development facility for our younger students and a dance studio. Throughout the academic year our students participate in various sporting events organised both by the school and, at an international level, by Nace schools. Our local events include Sports days, charity sports events and sports competitions and, at the NACE Olympic Games, in addition to promoting healthy international competition, our students get the opportunity to meet up with other young people from around the world and share their passion for sport.
“We believe Sport are necessary as an educational way for the full development of personality thanks to the values and skills that it fosters, such as teamwork, leadership, respect and equality.
Both the Physical Education classes and the Extracurricular Activities offer a fun and healthy practice where students can express their talent within the wide variety of possibilities we offer.
In addition, O Castro has modern facilities including a state-of-the-art synthetic grass field, a ballet room with floating platform, mirrors and its own locker room and a sports pavilion with grandstand that guarantee the means for an excellent sport practice . We also have highly qualified coaches who have played in reference clubs in the city, such as Celta de Vigo, Club Maniotas de Gimnasia, Universidade de Vigo Rugby or Coruxo FC Patinaxe.
At O Castro British School we are committed to a quality sport with the aim of preparing our students for the future.”
