Presentation on Co-Curricular Activities and Student Growth

By Prof Veena Dadwanai on 15th July 2011

Co-curricular and extra curricular activities are an integral part of the curriculum which provide educational activities to the students and thereby help in broadening their experiences. Co-curricular activities can be defined as the activities that enhance and enrich the regular curriculum during the normal school hours. Whereas extra curricular activities are the activities that take place beyond the normal school hours wherein the students are encouraged to participate voluntarily in activities like NCC, athletics etc.
Its Importance
These activities are designed to meet the needs of the students and cover a broad / wide range of their abilities and talents. Such activities stimulate the interests in the students and provide equal opportunity to all the students to participate. These activities enhance the learning experience of the students and help in recognizing and developing their inner skills such as leadership qualities, creative or innovative skills. Co-curricular and extra curricular activities give the students a chance to think out of their box and get creative ideas of their own with the help of a guide / facilitator. These activities help the students in developing a richer learning experience by giving them a chance to think in new ways to solve a problem or answer a question. Students need to take time outs to do more than just studying and co-curricular and extra curricular activities give them a chance to relax, refresh and mingle easily with others. In short, these activities prepare the students practically for their future.
