Character scores at soccer tournament

An annual school soccer competition is bringing students and their teachers at Christel House Mexico (CHMX) closer together – on the playing field. Teams of four students and one teacher compete during recess in separate boys and girls soccer matches. To join the tournament, students commit to displaying the Christel House values of respect, responsibility, integrity and independence.The values come into practice as students display good sportsmanship.“The tournament is very helpful in getting more involved and having fun with our great community,” shares Luis M., a high school goalkeeper. “Competing with players of different ages is a great bonding experience.” The soccer competition is closely followed by the whole school. Teachers see the positive impact on students. “I love how this event encourages children to bond with their teachers and makes the school more united,” says Ivan Contreras, a CHMX alum and health/science teacher. Judith Díaz, CHMX’s physical education teacher sums it up best: “This sport promotes discipline, commitment and teamwork that carries over into the classrooms of Christel House. Above all, students learn to motivate and support each other every day.”
