The President of the Republic of Bulgaria visited St. George International School and Preschool
On 16.10.2021 the sports campus of St. George International School and Preschool hosted the international competition “Sofia Karate Open 2021” and the initiative “Sports with the President”. The idea of the initiative is to promote physical activity and extracurricular sports activities.
The President Mr. Rumen Radev, arrived to greet the participants and to lend the “President’s Cup” to the organizers. The tournament was part of the calendar of the Bulgarian National Karate Federation.
After an official greeting from the students of St. George International School and Preschool, the President Rumen Radev was warmly welcomed by the CEO, Mrs. Kremena Peneva, and the Head of School, Mr. Leo Buckley. Shortly afterward, the President took a tour through St. George’s campus. During the tour, students in the delegation of St. George International School and Preschool shared with the President their favorite school activities – arts, debates, music, cooking, and sports.
On the running track, the President rolled up his sleeves and was challenged on a friendly game for 50 push-ups with several students who participated in the “Sport with the President” initiative, covering a set of exercises in the so-called Presidential Test.
After the sports adventures, the tour took the President to the world of music, fine arts, science labs and finally reached the school library. There, the 12th grader Maxim I. talked about his latest achievement – the book “Neverest”, which is co-written with his father. The book describes their extraordinary experiences last summer as they crossed the Atlantic in the eponymous expedition, which was part of the “Yes! For Life!” cause.
In addition to the bright palette of events in St. George International School and Preschool, on this day the Day of Aviation and the Bulgarian Air Force was celebrated as well.
Under the festive title, our team wishes all students to fly higher and higher, to be aspiring, and to achieve their dreams with ease!
