Speed to the Stars is a joint project organized by Telenor company and the Serbian Athletic Union. The idea behind the project is to familiarize the children with the healthy lifestyle that will contribute to their development and growing up. The sprinting competition (30 to 40 meters) was organized for Year 4 Primary school students (equivalent to Years 5 and 6 at the BIS). The goal of the competition is to test the children, to exercise and have fun. At the same time, this promotes the development of the basic sport, athletics and healthy lifestyle.
The project started in April and apart from the Municipality of Savski venac where the BIS is located, students from 16 Belgrade municipalities and 26 cities in Serbia took part in the competition.
The last competition in the 7th cycle for the Belgrade municipalities was held on 2 June at the Belgrade Waterfront open sports court. The Municipality of Savski venac, together with the Savski venac Sports Union was an excellent host and provided outstanding organization. All Primary schools within Savski venac municipality took part and the BIS was a special guest. In total, 118 students competed and the fastest 16 of them – 8 girls and 8 boys, were sent to the finals.
We are proud to announce that two of our students, Elena V. and Stefan M., qualified for the final sprint which will be held on 8 June at the Athletic Hall on Banjica.
