Read about Days 3 & 4

Sporting event happening between 13th – 16th March. The Varese team 15 girls and 15 boys who succeeded in being selected after many months of regular training, several times a week after school. Thanks also to all those students who did not go but helped throughout the training. Our students are all coming from various language sections, ranging from S4 to S7 levels.

All this in their spare time so a special thx to S7 students who dedicated so much of their free time (lunch, afterschool and weekends) in their final BAC year, with no academic credit.
Another special thanks to the 4 teachers Pollicini, Ribeiro, Vansteenkiste and Grolla for putting a massive personal effort in organising all this.

Well done to LUXII for the organisation and a big kudos to all the support from APEEL2 the parents association that have found hosting families for about 500 student athletes.
