Importance of Co-curricular Activities

Co curricular activities are important because even though they may not necessarily be a part of the core curriculum, they are important in giving young men and young women the ability to shape themselves to become more well rounded individuals.

School life is a home away from home. For some the experience is a nightmare, while for most it is the most exciting, unforgettable and transforming experience. Many school activities are designed purposefully to provide a good mix of a students’ participation in academics and also create an opportunity for all round development of students.

An academic institute should stand for dreams, building of character & skills, and defining a person’s life. Of course, there are innumerable memories that one cherishes about the school- be it about the learning, or about the untold stories of the life lived together and beyond. Of course, there are bonds made for life, of friendship, and many of beyond too; there are the heartbreaks, downfalls, and hardships too, which extend to make the events only more interesting andtreasured!

Our focus of providing integral education to every student is vital. We provide our students with avenues for pursuing excellence in their talent area, including Visual & Performing Arts, Sports & Games, and Life Skills. Co-curricular activities prepare students practically for the future. The normal curriculum can only go so far as to teach and educate students about academic theories. But students whose only experience of school or college is one of rigid academic study may not be able to apply what they have learned in practice. If the co-curriculum was given an equal footing in student life there will be an improvement in the student ability to grasp things as a whole, because students will have received a more rounded education. Co-curricular activities are particularly good at providing opportunities for students to work in teams, to exercise leadership, and to take the initiative themselves. These experiences make students more attractive to universities and to potential employers.
