The Jordan Olympic Committee's (JOC) Sporting Schools Programme has announced that they have launched the second phase of their Olympic education training project.
The JOC's Sporting Schools Programme was launched in 2017 with the intention to use the power of sport and education to motivate young Jordanians to lead a healthier lifestyle.
The second phase of the Sporting Schools Programme, will take place in two schools in the Jordanian capital Amman and be named "Olympic Values Educational Programme".
It will see the JOC, the German Olympic Sports Federation (DOSB), the German Corporation for International Cooperation (GIZ) and the Ministry of Education in Jordan deliver a programme of after-school activities designed to share the values of fair play, respect, effort and excellence.
The programme will also introduce the participants to the idea of Olympism and teach them about the history of the Olympic Games.
JOC secretary general Nasser Majali claimed he was pleased with the introduction of the new phase of the programme.
"We are delighted to introduce schools to the second phase of the Sporting Schools Programme and see more young people take up sport, and share the ideals of Olympism through educational, social and physical activities," he said.
"The JOC would like to thank its partners for all their work in helping to encourage healthy, active lifestyles in schools in Jordan."
This second phase of the programme is due to take place until April 26 - a week before the Sporting Schools Programme marks its first anniversary.
