Global Association of Montessori Education and Sport are proud to announce the first elementary edition of the Global Montessori Games.

It will be hosted by Positive School Ecole Internationale Montessori, Gières, France, and will take place Monday 21st – Friday 25th September 2020.

Due to sporting demands, cultural sharing and the travel involved, this event is best suited to upper-elementary students, between grades 4 and 6.

Teams will consist of 8 students, 4 boys and 4 girls, and we suggest that they be accompanied by 2 coaches, preferably of different gender.

Students will be hosted by local families, who will play an important role of covering French culture and customs.

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.

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.
