Last week the board of Global Association of Montessori Education and Sport have been in Norway organising this years winter Global Montessori Games (7-12 December 2020). We would like to thank everyone at Heltberg Private Gymnas Drammen for their invitation, involvement and enthusiasm. We are looking forward to coming back in December and learning more about Norwegian customs and culture.

The second global event in this form for students between 14 and 17 years old is a winter edition. Montessori schools from all over the world will come to Heltberg Private Gymnas Drammen.

This event is about building a peaceful and better world by practicing sports and making new friendships. Pupils, teachers and school leaders alike, will learn more about different countries, and their cultures, by working together and sharing ideas and practices.

It is not about competition or winning prizes but coming together and participating in sports in the Olympic spirit of fun, friendship, solidarity and fair play.

Again, students will be hosted by host families, who will play an important role of covering Norwegian culture and customs.

We have already had a lot of interest and wish to welcome schools from all over the world, hoping that many countries, continents and cultures will be represented. We suggest declaring your interest as early as possible.

Of course more countries are welcome to join the GMG! Also interested to join? Sign up here:
