During the “Know more, be better” week every year, our students have the chance to develop their fair-play competitive spirit, to learn how to work in teams. It is clear that sport is important for our students’ healthy life style. We have teams of football, volleyball, basketball, handball in which both girls and boys have the opportunity to express their young spirit. They are aware that it is important to take part in various sports competitions and winning is a plus.
First Tech Challenge is the largest competition for youth robotics worldwide. RoLERbot is a team of 15 teenagers, high school students, most of them Olympic in various disciplines. The 2018-2019 season was for RoLERbot Theoretical High School “Emil Racovita” a victorious year. At the end of the qualifying matches they came in 6th place, just one step away from the semifinals. This year, the theme of the competition, that involves building a skyscraper made of lego pieces, gives them the opportunity to be more inventive and to work with a completely new technology.
Our students come from different walks of life, many come from rural areas and many of them find in sports a common expression, being an essential part of their life. They learn how to stay strong and healthy, and their physical abilities are tested.
Usually, when going in for sports, we compete with other people in order to get some entertainment. At the same time, physical exercises bring a bunch of great benefits for participants. All kinds of sports can bring strong physical health, great team abilities, and strong organisational features.
