Co-curricular activities constitute an important part of educational orientation in our school.
Co-scholastic activities are those co curricular activities which take place to reinforce or supplement classroom curriculum in some way. They are ungraded and do not offer any form of academic credit, but they do provide complementary learning of some form
Co-curricular activities can provide students with a lot of interesting and important experiences outside the traditional classroom. There are many advantages to involvement in co-curricular activities, including:
- Allowing students to explore strengths and talents outside of academics
- Helping students develop stronger time-management and organizational skills
- Giving students the opportunity to build friendships and participate in group activities outside of the tight circle of the regular classroom
Therefore Co-curricular activities have become part and parcel of academic life, used to improve skills
Extracurricular activities are those activities that occur outside of the educational setting and do not provide instruction or experience to supplement the academic curriculum It should be noted that there is a definite difference between co-curricular and extracurricular activities. Where co-curricular activities are connected in some way to the school and to academic learning, extracurricular activities step outside of this realm. For example, the extracurricular activities like music classes, dance recitals, Girl Scouts (guides) boy Scouts, NCC, NSS, Involvement in a sport that happens outside of the school, etc.
Students are given exposure to a series of fine arts activities which include the following:
