Why is there a need for Extra-Curricular Activities in School?

Today, the mounting pressure of proving academic excellence coupled with technology dominated recreation has made our children lose interest in hobbies and other enrichment activities.  Parents and educators are rarely seen encouraging the younger generation to pursue their dreams and passions.  Instead the focus is primarily on scoring high grades to facilitate admission into top colleges; a sure fire means to secure a child’s future, at least professionally.  It’s always about which career is good for the child – engineering or medicine, management or finance? But we hardly question this way – should my child be a singer or a footballer?

Result oriented education forms the crux of a child’s school life and a crucial tool to equip with knowledge, but equally important are extracurricular activities that inculcate real world skills in children and blossom their personalities.   Here are five reasons why you must not overlook the significance of extracurricular activities in your child’s academic life.

  1. Create Opportunities

In this highly competitive world, better grades act as game changers while taking admissions in other schools, colleges, or institutions. Co-curricular activities provide better opportunities as students pursuing these activities are given more preference over those who aren’t involved in such types of activities.

  1. Development of Special Skills

Co-curricular activities improve the learning experiences of students, help them identify and develop their inner talents like creative & public-speaking skills, leadership qualities, etc. Co-curricular activities offer them an opportunity of thinking unusually and getting the innovative ideas of their own. These activities help the students develop an enriched learning experience by providing them a chance of imagining new ways of solving an issue or answering a question.

  1. Helps in getting a stronger mind

Academic rigors such as in-depth reading and complex problem-solving go far to strengthen the mind, but extracurricular activities will take this mind strengthening even further. High-endurance sports, for example, will train students to maintain patience and resilience in the face of intense difficulty.

  1. Boosts self confidence

Irrespective of the fact, whether your children like to draw and paint or play cricket, being appreciated for something other than academics will uplift their self esteem as well as mood. A confident child is better equipped to take on the real life challenges with vigour.

  1. Brings out the hidden talent

Academics is typically an acquired flair; every child is gifted with a special talent.  But not many can truly recognize it. Extracurricular activities encourage children to bring out their talent in the limelight and give it wings in the right direction.

Co-curricular activities in schools help students sharpen their communication skills, expression skills, public speaking, participation, and sense of belongingness through different types of activities like debates, extempore, recitation. Art and craft competitions, classroom activities like reading, group discussions, and many more. This ultimately helps in developing their overall personality.
