Importance of Extracurricular Activities

Extracurricular activities include theatre, sports, music, arts and other activities outside of the academic curriculum. But why are extracurricular activities encouraged instead of only focusing on academics? We’re here with the benefits of extracurricular activities that help a child’s overall growth.

Personality Development

Extracurricular activities help children enhance their all-round personality to strongly face the situations they will have to deal with later in life. The little wins matter a lot. Experiencing competition and teamwork in an activity they love helps them grow exponentially and step out of their comfort zone. Learning new things can be exhilarating and relaxing and helps you achieve success without the pressure of good grades.

Social Skills

The easiest way to make friends is through extracurricular activities. Extracurricular activities help you meet a lot of different and new people and allows you to understand how to socialize and work with them. This also helps children socialize later in life when they start interning or working.

Better Time Management

To be a part of extracurricular activities, you need to be punctual. Also, as students, it’s important to learn how to balance your time between studies and extracurricular activities so it does not affect your academics. Studies have shown that students perform better when they are involved in extracurricular activities. Punctuality is one skill that has never hurt anybody.

Learning New Important Skills

Children develop new skills that can help them in school and their daily lives. For example, swimming is a very important skill that can help a person in situations and should be encouraged to learn. Children learn skills like teamwork, critical thinking, better social skills and punctuality. These skills can help children a lot in their school life as well as adult life. All in all extracurricular activities play a crucial life in children’s life.
