skipping workshops for schools - Brazil

Scott Robert-Shaw and Lee Collinson-James travel to Brazil four times a year to deliver skipping workshops. We are coming to Brazil again on the 28th October until the 9th November 2008 and will visit Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.
The workshops usually run from the very start of the day and finish with a presentation of skipping skills performed by pupils chosen throughout the day. The emphasis is on fun of course, but also on fitness and improving playground behaviour. The workshops offered in Brazil are as follows;

Every Child Skips

is a series of workshops throughout the day with all the pupils (maximum 8 classes in a day)
  • workshops last 30-60 minutes, depending on the size of the school
  • the day ends with a demonstration to the whole school performed by children chosen from each session
  • schools with more than 8 classes may wish to do two or even three days
  • 1000 Reias (maximum of eight classes in one day) or 875 Reias if Staff or Parent Workshop is booked

Staff Workshops

Open to teacher and Playground Supervisors this is an excellent opportunity for team building whilst giving your staff the skills to keep skipping going between our visits.

  • This option is an add-on to the every child skips workshop and has proved vey beneficial to both staff and pupils.
  • Workshops show the fun and health, and team building benefits of skipping which in turn helps with the support of the children with their skipping
  • cost: 20 Reias per teacher. Cost capped at 200  Reias for up to 20 staff.

Parent Workshops

Due to demand we now offer parents the opportunity to stay after school for an hour of single, partner, long rope and double dutch skipping.
  • This option is an add-on to the every child skips workshop and is a wonderful way to integrate parents into school activities
  • The focus of the event is to show the parent the fun and health benefits of skipping which in turn helps with them supporting the child and the school with their skipping
  • cost: 20 Reias per parent
