ROLE OF CO-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES IN STUDENT LIFE
In today's highly competitive world, we have to bear a lot of mental stress and also have to get involved in so many things in order to acquire knowledge.This is where co-curricular activities play a very significant role.They help us get mental rest and also helps us stay physically fit and healthy.
Being only brilliant in academics doesn't help a student become a responsible citizen of that country.A student should also be equally talented in other fields and even if not, they should atleast pay some interest in them.It's because being both academically and co-curricularly talented helps a student to face the world.This also helps in developing his/her personality.There is no doubt that academices are the priority in a student's life but it would be very wrong to say that co-curricular activities are a kind of hindrance to academic excellence.Students don't go to school only to study but they also go there to show their potentiality in other fields like sports, dance and music.Another advantage of co curricular activities is that they help a student in building up their skills or nourishing their inner capabilities.Being a good debator means that a person can face any kind of interview in any interview which he applies for as naturally, he/she will have good speaking skills.Moreover, to get admitted in many top institutions in today's world, we have to know any of the acivities other than academics. Thus,co-curricular activities are as much as important as academics and we should be capable of managing both of these activities hand in hand.
"Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being, while movement and methodical physical exercise save it and preserve it." ~Plato
