WHAT WE DO

Co-curricular Program

Sports and Games

 
Academic learning and Sports Education are, actually complementary to each other. Sport and physical education is fundamental to the early development of children and youth and the skills learned during play, physical education and sport contribute to the holistic development of young people. Through participation in sport and physical education, children learn about the importance of key values such as:

•  Honesty
•  Teamwork
•  Fair Play
•  Respect for themselves and others
•  Adherence to rules

It also provides a forum for young people to learn how to deal with competition and how to cope with both winning and losing. These learning aspects highlight the impact of physical education and sport on a child's social and moral development in addition to physical skills and abilities.

In terms of physical and health aspects of child and youth development, there is an overwhelming amount of evidence that focuses on the (mostly positive) effects of sport and exercise on physical health, growth and development. Research indicates that physical activity promotes brain development in children and it also enhances their academic performance.
 
 

Learning Outcomes

 
Sport-based programmes have been shown to improve the learning performance of children and young people, encouraging school attendance and a desire to succeed academically.
     
 
Whilst a majority of research into the health and development impacts of sport has been conducted in developed countries, there are studies that support this relationship in developing countries.
     
 
Physical Education can be used to raise the self-esteem of young people and give them confidence.
     
 
The mental development, including the power of reasoning and vocational specialization, of course, comes from the academics. It, therefore, becomes imperative that education should result in the mental, moral and physical development of a student. For the all-round development of a child, the curriculum should include sports and games and health education. Sufficient amount of school time should be devoted to Sports and Physical Training.
     
 
Sports Education needs to be introduced with all earnestness, because mental and moral development is just not possible without physical development.
     
 
We must remember that 'a sound mind dwells only in a sound body'. A strong and healthy student will only sustain in the long run.
     
     
 
Life is a struggle and the person with a healthy and strong body alone can face it successfully. Besides promoting health and strength, sports develop many good qualities of the head and the heart. So sports are not only essential but also indispensable for an all-round development of the personality.
