In 2015 with the support of the International Sport and Culture Association (and in the frame of ISCA’s MOVE Transfer programme) the Hungarian School Sport Federation (HSSF) issued a Játssz TE IS! (Join the game!) call for tender for all Hungarian primary and secondary schools that had not been involved in the TE IS program before.
The main aim of the tender was to disseminate to a wider network the approach of the TE IS (You Play) programme, developed by HSSF. For the tender, HSSF asked primary and secondary school students to create an exciting and playful project in their school using their own skills and creativeness.
The prize for the game creator groups was a Játssz TE IS! day. During the spring of 2016, HSSF organised Játssz TE IS! days in three of their winning game creator groups’ schools – namely in Dunakeszi, Kalocsa and Kisnána. You can read more about the Játssz TE IS! day in Kalocsa and Dunakeszi here.
On these days the winning groups and their classmates could meet, play and do some sport activities with three of our world champions, Kitti Szász (4-time freestyle football World Champion), Adrienn Bánhegyi (World Champion skipping rope performing artist) and János Karancz (National, European, and World yo-yo Champion). Of course, the champions did not arrive empty-handed; they brought sport equipment, balls, skipping ropes and yo-yo for the children. Naturally these gifts were part of the rewards as well.
On the Játssz TE IS! day in Kisnána one of the specialities was the location itself, the Castle of Kisnána, which is one of the most beautiful remains of late-Medieval noble residences. The castle contributed to the game day not only with its beauty, but its special location also provided the students with some exciting game islands.
Thanks to the Kisnána Primary School’s hospitality, groups from nearby schools and kindergartens could also be part of the common games and actions. Moreover, local non-governmental organisations contributed to the successful games and the warm hospitality.
But the real leading role belonged to the members of the game creator group, to the ‘Szentimrések’, who showed their own creativeness and many sides in both their tender and in practice on the day.
We would like to say thank you to the students and teachers of Kisnána Primary School for turning Játssz TE IS! day into a vivid and valuable event, and thank you to the game creator groups for all your applications.
The staff from the Hungarian School Sport Federation would like to congratulate all the winners!
