Now let’s talk from the viewpoint of one of the organizers. Firstly I felt really proud and happy that this year I asked for the helped from all the International students and everybody was willing to participate. My motive was to let all the International students get a good connections and contacts from the students from other departments so they can always help each other when ones needed something, secondly I was surprised to see how the students from 4 teams harmonious with their tea and I was amazed to see how our athlete practise every evening at the sport complex to win the match.
The Objectives of this event was to:
- 1.To build a character and leadership behaviors.
- To foster the development of lifelong activities across a range of population groups.
- To enable low-participation groups and disadvantaged populations to partake in sport and physical activity.
- To support the sports sector in increasing and sustaining membership and participation levels.
