International Sports Festival: Oporto, Portugal

Eighteen members of Class VIII traveled to Oporto, Portugal to attend the Seventh Annual International Sports Festival hosted by Marymount network of schools member, Colégio de Nossa Senhora do Rosário. The festival brings network schools together to build friendships through healthy competition. Marymount New York students played against students from around the world in soccer, basketball, and volleyball. Students stayed with local host families, allowing them to be immersed in local culture. Besides sports, students gathered together for meals, dancing, touring, and socializing. Our Portuguese hosts were both gracious and generous.
