The Gamča Olympic Games (OH Gamča) are a legendary class competition, and they are held every year from September to December. The Gamča Olympics were established in 1988 to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the establishment of Czechoslovakia, drawing inspiration from the ongoing 24th Summer Olympic Games in Seoul, Korea. The godmother at the outset, and subsequently during the initial decades, was p.p. Valéria Bulíková.
The goal of OH Gamča is to promote the development of students’ collectiveness, competitiveness, intellect, and physical abilities, with a primary emphasis on enjoyment!
The Olympiad is a student activity organized by students from Septima and another third year class.
Name and flag
Every Olympiad has its name, which, according to tradition, always includes the letters O and H. Along with the flag, they collectively narrate the entire story of the Games. The organizing team creates the name and flag.
They compete in sports (individual and team sports), artistic (from creative improvisation to the theater), scientific (all subjects), non-traditional (e.g. boot throw) and special (e.g. Phantom and Grand Prix) disciplines.
The Olympic Games are officially inaugurated during the opening ceremony, which usually takes place on the second school year’s Friday in the schoolyard. The Olympic flame is lit, the name of the Olympics is introduced, and the games can begin.
The culmination of the OH Gamča is a gala program at the beginning of December, during which the best performances from artistic disciplines will be showcased, and results for individual disciplines as well as overall rankings will be announced. Graduates, parents, sponsors, and other invited guests also enthusiastically participate in the gala program.
Since the 31st year (OH V ohrození 2018), the Gamča Olympic Games have been held with the knowledge of the Slovak Olympic and Sports Committee (project Olympic Day), which brought a flag with Olympic rings to the schoolyard and a presentation of one new Olympic sport every month (see 2018: archery, field hockey , speed canoeing and speed skating; 2019: rugby and curling), which at the Olympics Gamča was not yet there.
As part of our sponsorship, we offer you the opportunity to present your company at all the events of the given year of the Olympics, thanks to which you have the opportunity to promote your brand not only to young people studying at school, but also to parents, graduates and friends of Gamče, who watch the Olympics through regular video or photo reports.
Our expenses are mainly rent for premises (for the gala program and sports fields that Gamča does not have available) and consumables. The organizers and even the pedagogical supervisor do not receive any reward from the sponsorship money.
We will be happy to discuss the details and possibilities of cooperation with you individually. If you are interested in sponsoring the next Olympic Games, please contact Gamča perpetua.
