Sport Tournaments with Other Schools

ECP’s best sportsmen and women of ECP have the opportunity to represent the school in competitions with other Czech and international schools. POPRASK is a Prague sports competition, in various sports disciplines, organised by DDM hl.města Prahy (The Prague House for Children and Young People).

The International Schools Sport Association Prague (ISSAP) tournaments are organised by different international schools in Prague and again, involve many disciplines -football, basketball, volleyball, floorball, skiing, swimming, tennis, track and field.

Cultural Olympiad

Every school year students can use their specific artistic talents and help their House to win the Cultural Olympiad. Cultural Captains, supported by their Senior Tutors, lead their teams and mainly organise the Whole House Theme category. The Arts Faculty supports students whenever it is needed.

The Cultural Olympiad traditionally takes place in Salesiánské Theatre. The whole school meets there and enjoys an afternoon full of amazing performances and celebrates the creativity of our students.

The winning House receives the Cultural Olympiad Cup and important points towards the whole-year House competition.

Category 1: Dance 3-5 mins
Category 2: Sketch 3-5 mins
Category 3: Music 3-5 mins
Category 4: Freestyle 3-5 mins
Category 5: Whole House Theme: a short film, a song – a presentation by the House of 3-5 mins, plus points for incorporating the Theme of the Year (Captains must make sure the film is of appropriate length in advance).

Interhouse Sports Tournaments

During the academic year, the Houses compete in different sports disciplines such as floorball, volleyball, basketball, football and table tennis. Sports Captains are in charge of creating and leading their teams. The competitions usually take place after school, but two of them have become whole school events taking place during the school day. These are therefore a good opportunity for all students and teachers to see top sports performances and to support their House teams. The atmosphere is always great – full of enthusiasm, joy and a determination to win!

Sports Day

Sports Day is a traditional event and marks the end of the school year. House Captains and Senior Tutors, together with the PE Department, prepare the programme, which involves a variety of sports disciplines. It is a great opportunity for students to take part in various sports competitions and to help their House win the Sports Day Cup. The highlight of Sports Day is the House Run in which teachers also take part and run for their House.

Student Council Presidential Campaign

The Student Council is an important student body, which cooperates with the management of the school on improvements of the school life. The Student Council also organises many events throughout the school year. It consists of House representatives and year group representatives. Like any team, the Student Council also needs a good leader.

The Student Council President not only leads the Student Council, but also carries out many responsibilities and represents students on formal occasions

such as Founders’ Day or meetings with the Governors. It is therefore very important to choose the right person.

All candidates present their programmes at year group assemblies, usually followed by many discussions among students. Each candidate has to prove that they are able to undertake this prestigious role. The success of each candidate is reflected in the student elections which decide the new President of the Student Council.
