With all students back at school, it was time for Footbag to return to the classes in Chile. After making a very successful alliance in 2012, the first school to return to was Colegio Los Almendros in La Florida.
La Florida is an outer suburb of Santiago and Los Almendros is a public school there. Once again the children were very enthusiastic, with many retaining their skills from the classes last year.
The classes in 2013 will look to add even more to the program. Students joined Daniel Boyle last year at the school sports day presentation, thanking the crowd in English and showing off their new skills.
This year, there are plans to host a footbag competition at the school, before getting nearby schools to take up the challenge and compete in a regional tournament.
Flying Clipper has made a great donation of footbags to Chile, which should be arriving in the country shortly. After giving a presentation about Sports and Education at the recent Edcamp Santiago, Daniel Boyle has opened up possibilities for classes at more schools and hopes to create a larger scale program this year.
