During this final, the short-listed schools will compete with a stage presentation (consisting of dance, music and movement) and a presentation in which an expert jury will ask questions about the school’s exercise and sports policies. Then the jury will decide which school deserves the title.
The nominated elementary schools are:
• OBS Houtrust – The Hague

• Caleidoscoop – Almere

The election of the ‘Most Athletic elementary school/SBO school of the Netherlands 2019’ is one of the projects of Teamplayers, a collaboration between ROC Mondriaan and THUAS. In Teamplayers, students from both educational institutions work on assignments from real clients, such as the KVLO. For a year, the students work together one day a week to complete the assignment.
