Students learn about Olympic values through NOCC course

The National Olympic Committee of Cambodia held an Introducing Olympic Values and Education program session on Monday for over 100 students at CIA First International School, one of three Phnom Penh institutions to sign on for the course, which aims to promote the ideals of Olympism and its three key values – fair play, friendship and respect. Following a presentation by NOCC adviser Ken Gadaffi on the right to play sports for good health as well as winning, the kids enjoyed activities such as relay races and basketball drills. “The idea is to gradually introduce Olympic education into the school curriculum,” NOCC Secretary-General Vath Chamroeun told the Post.
