Education helps develop a balance between a sound mind and a healthy body. We have all grown up hearing “A healthy body houses a healthy mind”, but how does one achieve a healthy body while achieving excellence in academics?. This is possible by knowing the co-curricular activities and its importance. Co-curricular activities are a great way to get a break from the four-walled environment and move outside the traditional classroom. These activities take place alongside curricular activities, which gives a chance to students to showcase their non-academic skills. Kids are full of energy which adults can’t keep up to. Co-curricular activities help them manage their reservoir of energy. But, co-curricular activities are not all play.
