Wellbeing Wednesday - Sport and Paris 2024

05 Jul 2023

At Ecole Jacques Prévert, sports and physical activities play a vital role in the holistic development of our pupils. They not only contribute to physical fitness but also have a significant impact on mental, emotional, and social wellbeing. Team sports are known to encourage a healthy level of competition and bonding in teams as they work together to achieve a goal. It is a great time for students to practise supporting each other through both successes and failure.

Next academic year promises to be sporty thanks to Paris 2024! The Agency for French Education Abroad (AEFE) has committed to roll out a new ‘Horizon 2024’ programme across its global network, promoting sport and the Olympic values to 350,000 students worldwide. With a network of almost 500 educational establishments serving 350,000 students across 137 countries, the Agency for French Education Abroad (AEFE) is partnering with Paris 2024 to deliver the ‘Horizon 2024’ programme. The initiative has been developed in line with the aims of the Paris 2024 Legacy strategy, in order to expand sports participation in schools and offer educational projects around the values of sport.

Christophe Bouchard, Director of the AEFE, said, “This agreement with Paris 2024 and the AEFE’s ‘Horizon 2024’ programme aim to promote a culture of commitment towards the Olympic values among the young people in French schools around the world. Sport is also about learning to live and work together; it’s a way to meet others. Indeed, cultural encounters are part of the DNA of our establishments, which bring together young people from many different backgrounds and nationalities. Our goal is for our students to play an integral role in the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, whether as volunteers, employees, young reporters or athletes.

We are looking forward to starting new projects in line with 'Horizon 2024' and sharing them with the school community.

As this is the last Wellbeing Wednesday for this academic year, I take the opportunity to wish all Jacques Prévert families a wonderful and relaxing summer.

Best wishes,

Mrs Weber
