All work and no play make Jack a dull boy
It is often observed that parents tend to overlook the paramount importance of extracurricular activities, such as sports, art and craft, and performing arts, in a child’s holistic development. However, for students to achieve social, emotional, physical, mental, and intellectual growth, it’s vital that they invest a part of their time and efforts in extracurricular activities.
How do Extracurricular Activities Help?
Extracurricular activities help children build their confidence in order to develop the skills they already have or to discover new skills that they haven’t yet explored. Children can benefit from this by learning more about the various types of art, music, literature, sport, and other activities that are available to them in the world.
What does Radcliffe offer?
- At the Radcliffe Group of Schools, we focus on a variety of factors through extracurricular activities, including a child’s physical, social and psychological development
- We encourage students to choose any dance activity, considering the abundant benefits dancing offers
- In order to focus on stress relief, we promote listening to good music
- We believe that art and craft is an effective creative outlet for children of all ages and can help them develop their fine motor skills
- Martial arts is another great way for children to remain fit as well as practice self-defense. It also makes them more confident, determined and focused to face the world.
- Participating in events like quizzes, debates, group discussions, extempore speeches, etc. has been shown to improve a person’s confidence, poise, self-esteem, knowledge, ability to resolve conflicts, and independence.
It is kind of an obvious and well-regarded fact that with synchronised extra-curricular activities and academic learning a child can reach the pinnacle of glory. With our focus on children’s holistic development, we offer our students ample opportunities to participate in various non-academic activities in order to facilitate our mission and make children future-ready, confident individuals.
