“Playing sport has become very important today, since it can encourage young people to develop important values such as loyalty, perseverance, friendship, sharing and solidarity.”


“Sport trains body and spirit for perseverance, effort, courage, balance, sacrifice, honesty, friendship and collaboration.”

  2. Choose some of the character strengths and find out what they mean.  
  3. How can those qualities be developed through sport?
  4. What are the best qualities to show when we are playing sports with others?
  5. Make a poster (digitally if you wish) about one or more of those qualities. You can use the information from your answers to the questions to help you.
