Extracurricular activities are the activities that a student takes up which are different from their regular curriculum. It is not related just to the studies but also to the holistic development of every child to perform their best.
Being good only at academics is not something expected from a meritorious student in today’s world. Instead, they should be good at other things too. Such extracurricular activities include dancing, singing, debating, painting, dramatics, sports, community service, steps to protect the environment, and other related tasks.
Extracurriculars make a student stand out. It also ensures the physical and mental well-being of a child. After all, “Only study and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”
Some of the students involved in extracurricular activities remain interested in them for a long time and try to make a successful career. This provides students with more diversity. Other students tend to learn by seeing them. Besides, they understand how to manage their time and commitment to their studies.
In many cases, parents do not support a child’s interest in extracurricular activities as they think it deviates them from their regular studies. However, this is not always true. Children get to understand and make a proper balance of their time and routine.
