  • After school Tennis-Table

Starting this year, IST is offering a new after-school activity in collaboration with coach Simone Magris for students from Grade 3 to Grade 13: Ping Pong

Coach Simone is a technician and a competitive athlete of the Sportni Krozek Kras sports club, one of the best table tennis clubs in Italy, which has recently celebrated its 50th anniversary.  Coach Simone is a qualified first-level technician at the FITET (Italian Table Tennis Federation), a qualification he was awarded two years ago.

Age groups: from Grade 3 to Grade 13

Days: every Friday from 3:50 pm to 5:20 pm

Cost: €140.00 for the whole course

The course will offer specific exercises to develop the coordination necessary to play table tennis. The goal is for all participants to know forehand and backhand strokes and footwork, such as the side step for example, so that they can use correct movements when playing against each other. All this is combined with matches for students to practice skills and have fun!

There will be a free trial on Friday, 23 September within which there will also be a game demonstration between competitive athletes.

The courses will start on Friday, 7 October and will end at the end of the school year. For any clarification, you can contact Simone Magris via email at simonemagris@alice.it or on 3317144043.

 

  • After-school MUSIC

Our scope is to promote the culture of music at school through foundation/introductory courses and group lessons offering musical education to a broad age range, including Early Childhood students. As you can see from the list below, we are proposing, once again, courses that will allow our students to follow the curriculum of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM), a world-leading provider of music exams for which we are enclosing a brief information leaflet.

The courses will begin on the week of October 3 and will finish at the end of the school year. Students will be given the chance to take free trial lessons to be arranged directly with the music teachers on 21, 22, 23, 26, 27 and 28 September. All lessons will take place after school hours in the classrooms made available by IST.
