In addition to the evident physical and mental benefits of a healthy and active lifestyle, participation in sporting activity encourages students to develop personal values such as perseverance, self-discipline, teamwork and cooperation. For pupils at Agora Portals International School, sport forms an essential part of the curriculum; we try to encourage a passion for active and healthy habits, establishing patterns of behaviour that will help our students to grow into physically and emotionally balanced adults.
The Agora International Sports Club forms an integral part of the school and our football, basketball and volleyball teams compete in local federated leagues. We have a covered sports area and 25-metre indoor swimming pool, along with tennis, basketball and handball courts, a football pitch, an international chess school and over 20 qualified specialist instructors and teachers. Thanks to the beautiful coastal area in which the school is situated, our students get privileged access to the Puerto Portals Sailing School.
In Physical Education lessons our pupils learn a range of national and international sports including baseball, hockey, rugby, sports-acrobatics, dodgeball, badminton, ping-pong, ultimate frisbee, football, basketball, volleyball and handball. Via our Sports Club students can also participate in judo, soccer, basketball, volleyball and chess. We consider swimming to be extremely important, as it helps to enhance the body-mind balance and to promote independence and self-confidence. Swimming forms part of the main school curriculum for all pupils in Preschool and Primary and is also offered as an extracurricular activity, either for general enjoyment and improvement, or students can join our Swimming Club and participate in swimming as a competitive activity.
As well as taking part in sports within the mainstream curriculum, students at Agora Portals are also invited to participate in a range of international sporting events organised by the Globeducate group. These events celebrate sporting excellence and healthy competition and provide an opportunity for our international community to gather together. The Globeducate Olympic Games is an international Olympic-style event that brings together over 500 athletes from Globeducate’s schools around the world. In addition to promoting an active lifestyle, our students also participate in a comprehensive health project, focussing on good nutrition and healthy eating.
