Sports & Games is an indispensable part of our curriculum. By inculcating this habit of playing various games and sports, our students will be refining their personalities continuously, unleashing their mental and physical capabilities in perfect conscious. Whenever we engage ourselves in sporting activity, we get to face various known and unknown obstacles in our way. This learning process improves our mental stamina enabling us face the hardships of our day to day life and brings about sophistication in our personality traits.
Sports & Games as an essential factor boosts up our confidence, inculcates the fighting spirit, develops team spirit, adds harmony to the communal back ground, shapes our personality, re-defines our character, develops an urge for success, cultivates the habit of facing challenges, teaches us to respect the responsibilities and above all help us as a community to come together for a unified human task. Sports naturally serve as a vehicle for education, health, leadership and fair play. As Radhakrishnan rightly pointed, “The personality is the Union of our acts, potentialities and a complex unit of body, mind and spirit”.
