Sports

It is no secret that physical activity is necessary to a person's well-being. Since children are continuously developing physically and emotionally, they are especially affected by the benefits of activity – and inversely, the negative effects of inactivity.

It is vital that schools provide physical education programs to ensure that each child stays active. Regular activity during the school day is strongly associated with higher concentration levels as well as more directed, composed behavior.

Physical activity contributes to improved academic performance. From a young age, children learn cooperation through group activities and form a positive sense of identity as part of a team. Such group activities are continually important as children grow older. At GD Goenka Public School we provide many opportunities for students to take part in team games or solo skills. Students of all ages and abilities are encouraged to take part in sporting activities, to learn about teamwork, fitness, and the value of sports in life.

Games and sports are important for success in every walk of our life. They teach us discipline, improve perseverance, build confidence, and instill competitiveness. Striving to win in every field can also be built around playing sports. Willingness to give an all-out effort, showing grace under pressure and ability to accept defeat when losing to a better team or a player also grows in the students. We strongly believe that to counter the increasing popularity of computers, video games, and television, physical activities should be designed to increase the children’s love for sports. Since these are extremely important for making a child healthy and physically strong, besides breaking the monotony of life, games and sports help in character building and essential life skills.
