The Association of Iscaeists for the promotion of cultural exchanges (AIPEC-ISCAE-CASABLANCA) organized, on 23-24-25 March 2018, the 20th edition of the ISCAE Olympiads on the theme: “We have made Morocco proud of us “.
Below is OLYMPIADopening speech addressed by Ms BIAZ, The General Director of Groupe ISCAE.
Dear students, faculty, colleagues, honoured guests,
The Olympiad represent one of the key events and highlights of Groupe ISCAE, which make our campus a pleasant and conducive area of study and life.
Therefore, the Olympiad event is as great, as scientific, cultural and artistic events that are scheduled throughout the year: conferences, colloquium, “Carrefour du manager”, university paths,…
By encouraging sports activities, Groupe ISCAE aims to:
- promote team spirit,
- enable students to harness their strengths while working on their weaknesses,
- maximize their performance towards a common goal,
- develop leadership and a sense of belonging …
Beyond this pedagogical aspect, it is about promoting a healthy and balanced lifestyle, positive attitude, and all values that are taughtthrough sport activities (Work ethic, team spirit, respect…).
Like artistic, cultural and associative activities, sport is part of a broad approach that places the human being as the key component of the development.InfactGroupe ISCAE considers thatits sustainable development depends on the personal development of each student, teacher, staff member and management.
Thus, the launch of this 20th edition of the Olympiad is an opportunity to celebrate the spring, the renewal, the positive transformation of our vital powers, those of the ISCAEistes, and those of the young people coming from different institutions of higher education countrywide.
Sport is, so to speak, a catalyst and amplifier of the constructive energies of our youth.
Finally, this event would not have been possible without the mobilization of the organizing committee of AIPEC, the generosity of our partner and Gold sponsor BMCE Bank, whom I want to thank warmly, our Bronze sponsors Vivo Energy and Lenovo, and our institutional sponsor “LaMarocaine des jeux.”
I am also grateful to ISCAE’s Casablanca Professional Support Staff, logistics and communication for the efforts made, and the athletes for sharing their amazing success stories testifying that hard work always pays off.
To conclude, I wish great sport moments to all of you: participants, spectators, and supporters.
