School of Hardening

We build the educational process around different types of physical activity. These are not only regular physical education classes, but also daily exercises, brain breaks during the lessons, outdoor games, compulsory swimming, dancing, cycling.

Everyone has probably encountered the situation when boys play football in PE class and girls sit on the bench? Fortunately, this is not the case with us! We actively involve boys and girls in playing together. This fosters respect for the opposite sex and develops social skills.

There are no standards in our physical education classes. Therefore, we develop physical qualities through games and try to explain children how important it is to be engaged in physical activity not only at school but also outside of it.

Our BIG dream and goal is healthy and happy Ukrainians in the future! That is why it is IMPORTANT for us to convey the health benefits of physical activity in everyday life, not just to fulfil the school curriculum. 

Through physical culture and sports, we aim to influence the development of education in Lviv and Ukraine as a whole and transform it in accordance with the conditions of the modern world!

Our goal is

  • a harmonious development of the child
  • education of a conscious and self-responsible person
  • We teach children that doing sports is not only useful, but also fun and very cool!

A good physical condition allows a child to concentrate better while studying and be more independent.

We regularly examine the child’s feet, posture and body development. In case of deviations, we work together with parents to eliminate these problems.

The school teachers and coaches are certified specialists and active athletes, with awards for their professional activities and sports achievements.
