Sport is considered to be a very important subject at Freies Gymnasium Zürich. Students take part in three sports lessons a week right up to Matura. They are encouraged to try a wide range of sports, to improve their physical fitness and to have fun being active and doing sport.
Every term students and teachers work together to set achievable new goals. In so doing students become aware that, no matter what their level of fitness and skills might be at the outset, each individual can improve with practice and training. This forges a connection between sport and positive emotions in a way that hopefully will last a lifetime. At every level efforts are made to strike a balance between the various types of sport, fitness and personal expression.
In addition, FGZ holds a variety of sports events at regular intervals throughout the school year.
