They left transpire joy and excitement in attending the event with colleagues who had never seen. For these children and adolescents, the festival was an opportunity to make new friends, practice the sport they like and the values they learned from their teachers of physical education, such as cooperation, responsibility and respect.

The main feature of interacting Festival is to perform minivôlei games between students of different nuclei, located in the same city. In Rio, the Network Volleyball project is in 15 schools in the municipal school system, factor favoring the execution of the event. For lack of teacher, the Queen's Mill Center is in the suspended activities but, in general, are about 1,300 affected students.
On 09 September, the games took place between cores Ricardo Albuquerque and Taquara, and between cores Tijuca, Rio and Bonsucesso Long; already on the 10th, Guadeloupe and Inhaúma went into court. The Bank cores and Higienópolis attended the event on the 11th, as well as the core Vicar General and Coelho Neto.

Many were proactive and respectful to greet without the guidance of teachers, colleagues from other centers. The experience of each was also essential for collective learning, even in arbitration and point counts. The students themselves have praised the attitude of his colleagues: "I really enjoyed playing with them (Coelho Neto). They played 'super' well and that was important because it showed everyone what they learned from a lot of training and willpower, "said Luanna dos Santos, 13, the Mini 4 × 4 category, core Vicar General.

The presence required of Rexona-AdeS team girls in interacting Festival was also quite motivating.
