The Roca Team Meets Pupils of the Ecole des Révoires
On Thursday 9 February 2017, Olivier Basset, assistant coach of basketball team A.S. Monaco Basket, team captain Amara Sy and player Jamal SHULER - who is one of the top scorers in this team, which is leading the PRO A championship - visited the Ecole des Révoires to share their passion for basketball with pupils from Years 5 and 6.
The pupils were very enthusiastic about this special meeting, during which they were able to practice basketball for several hours under the expert, kindly guidance of representatives from the Principality's iconic team.
This event is part of the educational activities implemented by the Department of Education, Youth and Sport to enable schoolchildren from the Principality, especially pupils from the Ecole des Révoires, to familiarise themselves with various sporting, artistic or cultural disciplines, and in some cases, uncover true passions.
Table tennis, sports dance, chess and bridge sessions are thus offered to the pupils every Thursday during the lunch break.
