Sport is very important
Sport is considered to be very important 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 the aim is to work together towards achieving new goals. Students become aware that, no matter what their level of fitness and skills are at the outset, each individual can improve with practice and training. This makes it possible to link sport to positive emotions in a way that hopefully lasts a lifetime.
At every level, teachers aim to strike a balance between sports and games, fitness and creativity.
