SLIDE # 3 THE EDUCATIONAL VALUES OF OLYMPISM Joy of effort Fair play Respect for others Pursuit of excellence Balance between body, will and mind SLIDE # 3 ( A) JOY OF EFFORT Young people develop and practise physical, behavioural and intellectual skills by challenging themselves and each other in physical activities, movement, games and sport. SLIDE # 3 ( B) FAIR PLAY Fair play may be a sporting concept, but, as every parent knows, even small children have a strong view on what is " fair". Learning fair play behaviour through physical activities can help in the development of fair play behaviour in the community and in life. " FAIR PLAY IS NOT CAUGHT, IT MUST BE TAUGHT." SLIDE # 3 ( C) RESPECT FOR OTHERS Learning to accept and respect diversity can promote peace and international understanding. The Olympic Movement brings together all races and cultures and can serve as a model for tolerance and understanding. SLIDE # 3 ( D) PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE Among athletes excellence is often considered as " doing your personal best". This concept can help young people to make positive, healthy choices, and strive to become the best that they can be in whatever they do. SLIDE # 3 ( E) BALANCE BETWEEN BODY, WILL AND MIND Current research suggests that learning takes place in the whole body, not just in the mind, and that physical activity and learning through movement contributes to the development of both moral and intellectual learning. Pierre de Coubertin's revival of the Olympic Games was based on a similar concept of body and mind. SLIDE # 4 OLYMPIC VALUES ARE COMMUNICATED THROUGH SYMBOLS AND CEREMONIES The Olympic Movement is more than another sport event. Young people's imaginations are inspired by the art, music and cultural presentations of an Olympic Games. Respect and acceptance of diversity can be fostered by introducing activities based on the educational values of Olympism into all aspects of a sports programme, and into other school subject areas such as language, history and science. SLIDE # 4 ( A) OLYMPIC SYMBOLS Rings, Flag, Torch, Flame, Truce Symbol SLIDE # 4 ( B) OPENING CEREMONY SLIDE # 4 ( C) CLOSING CEREMONY AND VICTORY CEREMONIES SLIDE # 5 OLYMPIC VALUES ARE SHARED THROUGH OLYMPIC SPORT AND THE OLYMPIC MOVEMENT These values are found in the Right Olympic Day Joy in Great Britain.
