Extra Curricular Activities- A Complimentary Curriculum


Extra curricular activities are those that fall outside the realm of the normal curriculum of school, performed by students. Co-curricular activities are just as important as academics. They both complement each other to develop a well rounded student with more social skills than one who only concentrates on their books. Education should go beyond the four walls of the classrooms, it should be more than just books. There are so many activities that a student can choose from, including sports such as athletics, football, basketball, table tennis etc and debate, chess and music etc.

Students who participate in co-curricular activities have a marked improvement in grades. This can be attributed to skills they learn such as better time management to accommodate their hobbies and class activities. A student learns how to plan out their day to include study time and co-curricular activities time and will know how to make use of any free time they may have. Students who participate in co-curricular activities have a sense of commitment to whatever they are involved in. This is because, as they take part in whatever sports or club activity they are a member of, they have to commit to it and give their all and this commitment extends to all the areas. Leadership qualities grow up which facilitates them to take initiatives in their lives. The art of being a part of the big game is learnt only through extra curricular activities. To build up a child into a complete matured adult extra curricular activities play a vital role.
