PRIMARY SCHOOL – ESCUELAS DEPORTIVAS

We invite all Primary School students to participate in the escuelas deportivas programme. Throughout the school year, students train to develop the basic skills of the sport they have chosen to participate in UNCOLI events.

These activities are available at no additional cost.

All the activities are carried out in the facilities of The English School. School buses are available for those students who are registered for transport service.

Registration procedure

From 1 to 15 August 2021, parents can register their children for only one (1) sport activity, taking into account their year of birth, through the DeporTES platform, which can be accessed from the school’s website. The registration period reopens at the beginning of the second and third term for students who did not register at the beginning of the school year.

Important

The Sports Department will send parents a communication with the school bus that will take the student home. Without this confirmation, no student will be allowed to stay on the school premises to participate in the activities. In addition, all communications will be sent to the institutional e-mail, therefore, parents must verify that it is activated.

    • Athletics
