Commitment to supporting physical culture in primary schools and their safety are some of Rakita’s priorities in contributing to the local community. This is why year 2018 was completed with the donation of the “Games without Violence” event, which included primary school students of town and village schools.
Eight students from four teams of schools “Stanoje Miljković” from Brestovac, “Petar Radovanović” from Zlot, and “3. Oktobar” and “Vuk Karadžić”, competed at the Sports Center Bor in late December 2018 in the games of skill.
The most interesting game for the numerous audience, which included many pre-schoolers, was the game on the polygon.
The first place in the overall results was taken by the school team of “3. Oktobar”, the second place by students from primary school “Stanoje Miljković”, while the third place was taken by young competitors from school “Vuk Karadžić”.
The winners were rewarded with equipment which supports taking up sports. For the first three places, balls, cups, T-shirts and diplomas were awarded, while others received letters of thanks.
“The aim of this event was not only reflected in the motivation and encouragement of children to engage in sports, but the most important thing was socializing,” says Ivana Pajkić, Principal at school “Vuk Karadžić”, which was the organizer of the games, along with the partnership of the Roma youth initiative “Gypsy Soul”.
The organization was financially supported by Rakita, while the “Sport for All” Association in Bor donated cups and T-shirts for the best teams.
