Educational paths: between writing and sport to grow in health
In collaboration with CONAD
Growing up in the modern era is a complex path: children and young people must soon learn to juggle a world full of information that travels at high speed and often they risk feeling overloaded and overwhelmed by this chaos.
For this reason, the school's task is more complex than in the past: in addition to being a guide in cultural and educational terms, it also assumes the function of transmitting how important a correct lifestyle is. As the Ministry of Health also indicates, it is essential to direct the growth path according to the principles of proper nutrition, adopting healthy habits, without forgetting the importance of doing sports.
A future with solid foundations begins to be built as a child
Over the years, sport has consolidated as a complementary activity in the day of many children and young people: those who choose swimming, those who play football, those who dance, almost all children have several extra-curricular commitments to which they can devote time and commitment.
The function of sport embraces multiple areas in the growth path.
In the first place, it allows you to learn what it means to make a commitment. Inserting habits in the planning of weekly activities involves taking on the responsibility of keeping faith with a project to be observed with constancy and determination. It is therefore a question of unconsciously assimilating very important values, which will constitute the pillars of adult life.
This also helps to develop awareness and the ability to bring things to completion, contributing to the growth of strong and determined personalities, who in the future will be able to pursue their ambitions with tenacity.

The results will be seen immediately, but they will also guarantee a better future: you will have more energy and you will get sick less over time.

Last but not least, the aspect of social interactions must be considered: in sport you become a group, you learn to be in a team (which will be very useful, for example, in working dynamics as adults!) Making the values of humility and cooperation your own. with which to carry out important enterprises, able to give great satisfaction. Sporting activity, carried out with constant frequency, puts us in front of the fact of having to relate to more or less pleasant people, thus learning to bring out the courage to have one's say and prove one's worth, without ever giving up on defeat. .
There is no shortage of reference figures in the competitive world to be inspired by: there are many sportsmen who have made history in Italy and the passion that distinguishes our fans is well known. Nowadays it is nice to see children and young people inspired by prominent personalities in the pursuit of a dream, following in the footsteps of those who are taken as models for their grit and determination in achieving sporting excellence.
How important is sport to you? Put it in writing
For children and young people in primary and lower secondary classes, the writing competition returns again this year, which allows you to transform the passion for writing into a team game. Scrittori di Classe is Conad's initiative, which allows you to put your skills and commitment to good use, just like in a real sporting enterprise.
