15th October 2021: National Exercise Day
Today was Motions Day. ISIB students took part in Venskabsløbet (the Run of Friendship). The purpose was to have fun while exercising and at the same time collecting donations for vulnerable children in Denmark as well as in the rest of the world. You can find the donations page here: https://venskabsloebet.redbarnet.dk/indsamlinger/international-school-ikast-brande-2
Students completed laps of a 1KM running course around the school. We were very impressed with the effort lots of the students put in, with many walking and running with their friends and teachers throughout.
The overall distance of each participant was tallied up and counted towards our first House event. The overall winners were the Shark House. Congratulations... fast on land and water!
Early Years also took part in the event and have been going for a walk in the local area every day. They finished this week by celebrating Motions Day by walking 3.2 km. They had lots of fun, exploring forests, parks and play areas. In total this week the children and teachers in Early Years have walked an impressive 9.5km!
Thank you to Mr Mate for arranging the running event and well done to everyone who took part!
