Importance of Extracurricular activities at Sarvottam
Nowadays, when we talk about education or academics, we are bound to discuss curricular and extracurricular activities. It has become one of the basic requirements of today’s education system. Education is indeed incomplete and rather meaningless if it does not cater to these extracurricular activities in the curriculum.
Extracurricular activities are not part of the usual curriculum beyond that it is something we can’t overlook. It takes place in addition to your regular school activities or curriculum.
We at Sarvottam understand the importance of extracurricular activities and we believe they should go hand in hand. We designed the curriculum in such a way that it will help the students in all possible ways.
Extracurricular activities play a pivotal role in a child’s education in many effective ways. It helps students to develop their social skills, time management, multi-tasking, collaboration, and leadership skills and further guides them on how to work as a team to achieve the desired goals. These activities also provide them with opportunities to explore different areas of interest.

Sarvottam believes that these activities are an inseparable part of the curriculum as it is a kind of learning that includes observation, practice, and experience. It is a mandate for young learners to have their own observations where they experience things personally and gradually make their perceptions so that they can act accordingly in various situations. It can definitely help them to perform better in both internal and external skills such as self-acceptance, self-presentation, creativity, interpersonal skills, self-reliance, self-esteem, career-oriented goals, and many more.
Further, these activities also help them to develop work ethics among themselves and enrich their personality as well. They feel like they are part of one single unit, and they learn to work as a team for the same goal.
