Health Train season starts with ski trip for overseas students
The Health Train is a regular series of sports and outdoors activities for KFU students.
This past weekend, both Saturday and Sunday were dedicated to such trips. Overall, about 90 students from Tunisia, Panama, China, Indonesia, Sri-Lanka, India, Egypt and other countries joined the festive event, accompanied by Specialist of the Student Adaptation Unit Dinara Sultan.
Preparatory School student Amilcar Martinez Cardenas, a Panamanian national, shares his impressions, “At first, it was a bit tricky to learn to ski, but I succeeded eventually. Despite having forgotten my gloves – and it was cold enough – it also was much fun and very interesting. I am glad to have visited this beautiful place – the Astronomical Observatory. After the race, we had tea with some sweets and spent time taking photos in the snow. The day ended with a collective singing session on the bus home. It was indeed a memorable trip.”
Amilcar is not afraid of the cold and plans to continue his studies at the Faculty of Law.
The Health Train is co-hosted by the International Office, the Department of Youth Policy, the Department of Physical Education and Sports, and the Kazan Yulbars KFU Sports Club. The winter session in 2023 is scheduled from 4 February till 25 March.
