Club Activities

Development of real-world skills


A school-club activity inculcates so much more than the activity itself. For example, if a child is involved in an after-school dance club, they learn to hone a much-loved hobby and end up doing good physical activity. They also learn to communicate and mingle with their peers, juniors, and seniors in the process. Skills like time management are also honed in the process. Such attributes prepare them to face life with more confidence in the future.


Better academic performance


Teachers in CBSE higher secondary schools say that after-school club activities help students improve their grades and gain higher Grade Point Average (GPAs).


Inculcates healthy habits


School clubs divert children from resorting to watching TV or playing video games straight after they get home from school. Extracurricular activities like sports, athletics, and self-defence classes keep them physically active, which is an absolute must for children. Such hobbies can also reduce stress, impart healthy lifestyles and lessen screen time.
Improved safety

Participation in school clubs keeps children safe inside the school campus until the parents come to pick them up. It significantly reduces instances of children loitering unsupervised outside the school premises. Adult supervision also ensures they stay away from unwanted habits like drug abuse, smoking, drinking, etc.


Better job opportunities


Older students gain early exposure to job opportunities through school club activities. Talented students are likely to grab the attention of employers or mentors when they go out for competitions. Some competitions also reward winners with valuable scholarships to pursue their higher education after school
