Empowering Education through Recreation


A Look into Our Recreation Day at Jubilee School

Last Friday, Jubilee’s School was alive with energy and excitement as we hosted a fun day of sports and entertainment for our students. From soccer games to movie screenings, it was a day filled with laughter and learning for all. In this blog, we’ll explore the importance of recreation and sports in school education, as well as the positive impact it has on our students.

Importance of Recreation and Sports in Education:

Numerous studies support the idea that recreation plays a vital role in education by providing opportunities for the physical, mental, and emotional development of students. Here are some ways in which recreation benefits the educational process:

Physical Development: Participation in recreational activities such as sports, outdoor games, and physical exercises promotes students’ physical health and well-being. It helps develop motor skills, coordination, and endurance, contributing to an active and healthy lifestyle Our PE teacher, Mr. Bermudez, says “Sports are a fundamental tool in education, as it promotes values and physical activity in young people.
Mental Development: Recreation offers opportunities for exploration, experimentation, and hands-on learning. Through playful and creative activities, students can develop cognitive skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, and decision-making. Our Principal, Mrs. Osorio, mentioned that “I like to take these initiatives with our children, because I consider that when children run, de-stress, release a lot of energy, that we have healthy children, also with healthy minds” Recreation can also stimulate imagination and creativity, fostering an environment conducive to learning.
Emotional Development: Engaging in recreational activities can help students manage stress, improve mood, and promote a positive outlook on life. Recreation provides opportunities for socialization, building relationships, and developing social skills, which contribute to self-esteem, confidence, and the ability to work as a team.
In summary, recreation plays a fundamental role in education by promoting the holistic development of students. By providing opportunities for physical, mental, and emotional growth, recreation contributes to the formation of balanced, healthy, and well-adjusted individuals who are prepared to face the challenges of the world that we live in.

Sports and Christ: Athletes for Christ:

One of the most inspiring aspects of our activity was the focus on teaching Christian values through sports. Like prominent figures in Central America, such as Keylor Navas The Christian’s PSG goalkeeper​, our students learn to follow God and honor Him through their athletics. Becoming “Athletes for Christ” not only teaches them athletic skills, but also instills values of integrity, teamwork, and resilience.
