During the year, socialization of the students, inspiration of the class and the team spirit and also the efficient use of break time are ensured by organizing various tournaments among classes which are appropriate for the age groups.
Sport is a social occasion. The ability of the individual to express himself plays an important role in the emergence of many individual and social behaviors such as being able to play a role in a social group, learn teamwork, and discover leadership qualities.
Considering these criteria, Çevre College also conducts club and school team work so that students with advanced sports skills can evaluate these skills. These studies are carried out in the field in the presence of professional teachers and coaches. Teams are selected from talented students in those fields and continue to work outside school hours. The club and team work practiced in our school consist of basketball, swimming, volleyball and chess branches.
