CLUBS AND ACTIVITIES INDOOR AND OUTDOOR
Co-curricular activities are the components that mirror non-academic curriculum and facilitate in the development of various domains of mind and personality such as intellectual, emotional, social, moral and aesthetic development. Creativity, enthusiasm, and positive thinking are some of the facets as well as outcomes of personality development. Co-curricular activities refer to learning experiences related to sports and culture that complement, in some way, what students are learning in school.
We endorse the magic of sports to create a generation of champions in real life equipped with life skills. On the one hand where the younger ones find their place in the sandpit, toy houses or play decks, all students from Class V onwards are encouraged to participate in sporting events. Besides nurturing their athletic talents, sports and games, we inculcate a spirit of healthy competition and teamwork in students. Qualified trainers and experienced coaches supervise and monitor the progress of every child, to ensure that they learn, and excel at a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities apart from athletics.
