The students of the National Sports School spent a morning at the Institute of Physical Education and Sport, University of Malta. A programme was organised for all the students in which they were welcomed by the Director of IPES, Mr Andrew Decelis and the Head of Sports School Mr George Micallef.

Then they proceeded to take part in different activities run by B.Ed. (Hons.) in Physical Education University Students. It was an excellent experience for all the IPES student teachers to work closely with the NSS students through various interesting sports and physical activities. Apart from physical activities such as teambuilding games, La Crosse, Soft Ball and ultimate Frisbee, the students also took part in discussion workshops with the theme “The World of Physical Education and Sports”.  This was an occasion to enhance a close collaboration with the National Sports School and we look forward to make this a yearly appointment in our calendar.
