Students have a right to a broad education. Why should a science student have to give up music, or a social studies major not get opportunities for sport? Many children have talents in all sorts of different areas, and it is wrong to force them to specialise too early. A career is not the only part of an adult's life " school needs to make sure they have interests and skills that will help them in their family and leisure lives too. Through equal balancing of academic and co-curriculum, however, the students have the chance to exercise their rights and the opportunity to be multi-talented. Lopsided individuals are not the key to the future, instead of recognising each individual by their talents there exists a higher possibility for young people to learn and to grow in their studies.

Hello everyone,

I agree with many of you, on this, that extracurricular activities should be made compulsory in school. Because the school is the base maker of a student. Some type of activity like group discussion, swimming, debate etc are very important for a student. These are useful to build up the mind and develop the confidence and also make a good speaker also. We also include indoor and outdoor games so that. Ore student takes part and enjoys it. We know books are important but games, arts, speaking skills, dance, swimming, singing are very important in general life. So to make a bright future some involve activity are important that can be followed and also include in school learning plan. Thanks.

A student has a daily schedule of 6-7 hrs of study. Apart from this, he has to attend tuition classes as well.

In nutshell, throughout the day he is busy with studies.

In such a scenario, extracurricular activities give a break from their daily routine and learn a new thing.

This helps to make them aware that studies are not the only thing in life.

2ndly, it gives them an opportunity to know their hidden skills, which might probably develop as a profession when they grow up.

3rdly, it helps them to train their mind to do more than one activity and removes them from monotonous life.

Because it opens more way to think on it gives the student an opportunity to find out their interest, as we know not every student is focused seriously in study all have different hobbies on which field they want to work with interest not forcefully and if school focused on curricular activities like sports, drawing, singing, dancing etc than many of student improve themselves on that field hence they got a perfect field to work and their future will also secured.

Not all sorts of knowledge is found in book. Moreover, to have all-round development students should actively participate in these activities. These activities may consists of Group discussion, Debate, Quizzes, Paper presentations, scientific exhibition, etc. Thus by having a keen interest in these activities students can make themselves not only versatile in terms of knowledge but also they would be eloquent and enunciate their views. They would be able to express. Also while having these activities they can have good command on their emotional intelligence which is of paramount importance in this epoch.

Hi everyone.

Yes, extracurricular activities should make compulsory in school this type of activities will make students stronger and firstly.

These activities avoid stage fear. It gives strong mind and improves competitive spirit, it improves knowledge.

Some students are not active they feel stage fear they won't participate in activities, that time parents and teachers have a responsibility to teach them in nice way. When students participate in those activities parents also know their children's talent and they happily give chances, and they change the mindset about children's.

I conclude that extracurricular activities should be made compulsory in schools. It will gives chance to every student to show their hidden talent and that is the stage to avoid fear and also gives refresh to every student.

Hello everyone!

According to me, extra curricular activities are very important for one"s personality development. If students only focus in academics and studies then they cannot explore themselves in the real world. There is a lot of difference between writing anything and speaking the same in front of the public.

Not even speaking and gesture, posture but sports also play an immense role in personality development. Sport teaches a person that he has to win, what should be his/her strategy to win and also if we lose then ho we have to behave with our counterparts.

So, we can see that how extracurricular build personality and makes man perfect to face real-world problem.

In my opinion, it is absolutely right to make extra curricular activities compulsory in school in order to balance the mental and physical health of a student for his wholesome growth. Activities like Sports, weekend trips to places, plantation programmes, dance, music etc. Should be there for the students that will not only make them fit and enhance their skills but also help them to deal with social problems in their lives as well.

For example-If we take the western countries, their students must take a sport as their forte in their academic sessions. This also ensures that they gain mastery over their chosen sport as they grow and eventually, these students bag the medals in National and International level Tournaments.

At last, Student life is most sensitive because they are like clay that will take the permanent shape as they are moulded. So, it is up to us to leave them to remain in their shell of books or expose them to different situations before their actual responsibilities start.

Having a wide range of experiences prepares people better for the future, especially in today's uncertain world. The broad education that the co-curriculum can provide is better preparation for life in a society where an individual may change career several times in their life. Students must therefore have a fundamental grasp of multiple skills. For instance, athletes who had their career cut short due to mishaps might venture into business, having had co-curricular experience of entrepreneurship as part of their education. Speech and debate clubs might give a doctor or engineer the communication skills to move into broadcasting, teaching, or even politics. Placing more emphasis on the co-curriculum thus ensures a variety of possibilities for young people to choose from instead of being sidelined.

Most co-curricular activities are physically active, getting the student out from behind their desk and making them try new things. This is healthy and ensures that students are exposed to practical tasks, not just what is taught in class. The outcome of giving the co-curriculum the same status as the curriculum will therefore be well balanced individuals. Future politicians, for example, will not only thrive on law or social studies, but will also become fluent in multiple languages, learn to tango and perform several calculus operations simultaneously, while also experiencing service through community work. Such are the more profound benefits of the co-curriculum being integrated into the syllabus.

Today, children been engulfed wholly in technology, repercussions are easily distracted, aggressive, low stamina, compete to such an extent where they use evil tactics to win.

It should be mandatory to each institution to inculcate the extra co-curricular activities, and segregation of grades in this context. Each coin has two sides, imparting extra activities just not act as a catalyst to improve the stamina, but also helpful in developing a child as a whole, boosting the sportsmanship, cope up with the loss, provide a vivid vision for taking the sport as their career.

If children concentrate on their games rather than studying, definetely they will get poor marks. Marks are more important today. Childrens are not as much matured like us. They are small kids, they need to be relaxed. They has to read a heavy syllabus and if extra curricular activities are made compulsary, they cannot able to cop up both. At this age, studies must given more important. I accept sports is also important and it is healthier too but it is not as much important than study. If they concentrate only on study and take rest in free hours, childrens loves it. They need some break and they must give some time to sleep, reading books etc. They have only 1 brain, so parents must understand them and encourage them to study.

One thing I want to mention that in our Indian society what he thinks about intelligence, that if a student is good in the study he is intelligent. But according to me anyone who is doing anything brilliantly that one is intelligent.

So do that in which no one can beat you. And if they get the platform from the starting stage of learning (school) I assure you we will get so much great Olympians, athletes, dancer, singer and many more.

Look at our system we study almost 14 years before going to college and what most experience there that study was not for them. They have specific talents which most of their friends do not possess.

Moreover, extra curricular activities also increases concentration power and help in our studies also. Besides, it plays an important role in improvement of communication skills, time management etc.

It is said that "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy". Well, a healthy mind will never reside in a body that does only mental work. I indeed, feel that extra-curricular activities must be made compulsory in school.

1) It will provide a relief from the tiresome continuous lecture classes.

2) It will unveil the hidden talents of many students, who might have earlier not been able to show them because of lack of a suitable platform.

3) It will assist in making the students apply their knowledge, as they need to understand that application of their knowledge is very essential. For example, if a student X scores highest in the class in English Literature (by mugging up answers), but cannot write even a single paragraph error-free, then what is the use of his education?

4) The students would learn many moral values like cooperation, team work, patience, etc. Because such things can never be taught by lectures: they are learned when a student personally participates in such events.

5) Moreover, if a student due to some reasons, cannot participate in one activity, he can participate in another activity; such arrangements must be available in school.

Thus in my opinion, every school must have a list of extra-curricular activities and it must be compulsory for every student to participate in at least 1 of his choice.

Hi friends,

It's my opinion, First I agree with this topic. Because today world most expecting talent students. But some school focusing on how to get high marks and how to get the first place in our school. This is the current situation in school. (I said only for few school not at all). However some school encouraging the student and they respect the talents. So students are increasing the skills. Extracurricular activities should be made compulsory in school. Teacher's will be encouraging the student and said half of the study should be half of the games. For example in the world today, there are more talented and achieved our dreams. (Sachin, Michel Jackson). So "Education can identify a man" but "Skills proves a man life's, further help me show your way of life". Indeed in today's world, talent is a great competition and its also war. Finally skill should be developed in each school. (because this is a student's life). Extracurricular activities exist for all students.

Thank you, friends!

Good evening,

At the very beginning before talking about this topic. I would like to show my greet to giving this interesting topic which brings me a different thought about many students I have seen from my school days including my friends who has their unique talents in them. Education is not about subjects it is a way of teaching students where and how to expose their talents in many ways. Everyone is equally talented in different ways. Some will be interested in sports, dance, singing, gk, gymnastics which brings their own potentials. Our king of cricket Sachin Tendulkar completed his education at the class of 10th and he stepped into cricket which is one of the extra-curricular activities providing chances to many students in schools and colleges etc.

Talents have no end. It can be expressed in every way.

The effects of stepping into extra-curricular activities make students physically and mentally relaxed on earlier days students through this way and still it is happening to mold our students in different ways by providing various inter-school competitions. Thank you.

In my opinion, extracurricular activities should be made compulsory in schools. It is as if the base of a build strong, it can bear earthquake similarly if the base of education of a child is good, he will do good in future. Extracurricular activities promote the overall development of a student. A student should not be limited to studies. He/ she should be given exposure to various kind of extra activities. Students will not be hesitant to go to stage otherwise it is observed that students at later stage feel of the stage. They could not express themselves in front of the crowd. They lack leadership skills. They may find their keen interest in some activities and they can pursue a career in that field. Besides, students should participate in the various competition at school level. It will develop competency among them. All companies nowadays demand competent and skilled persons for a job and these skills are developed in schools.

Making extra curricular activities compulsory in schools has several benefits. It ensures overall growth and development of the students. It enhances the personality and develops confidence. However not every student is willing to take part. Some are shy and introvert. But as the benefits are immense, it should be made compulsory taking into consideration some aspects. For instance, the performance in extra curricular activities can be linked with academic performance to reflect the real performance of a student. Also, efforts should be made to ensure that there is a balance between academics and extra curricular activities as both are equally important.

Of course extra curricular activities should be made mandatory in schools. It has multiple benefits associated with it. Right from shaping the persona of a student, to providing a healthier body it has several advantageous effects on us. As we all know "All work and no play makes jack a dull boy". So its very well suited over here. Extras sharpen our concentration and increase our efficiency and performance level in studies or any concerned area. Apart from this, it teaches the qualities like teamwork, leadership building. Co-curricular have tremendous effects on our personality from. Teaching us to more patient to encouraging us to be disciplined. In the current scenario, where there is cut-throat competition in every field, mandating co-curricular at school is very helpful for proper shaping as well as the stable state of our mind, make it resistant to mental disorders like depression.

Extra curricular activities give chance to express and expression is very important. Long time absence of expression causes suppression. Long time suppression causes normal expression to appear like a reaction. Reaction instead of expression is the root cause of all the introvert students to lose many good opportunities. It is really very important for a student to take part in extra curriculum activities which would develop their Communication skills, team building ability, handling criticism, time management and many more skills.

Studying all the day gives only the bookish knowledge but participating in extra curricular activities will make one to use that knowledge in the society. For example studying how to swim is totally different from really swimming right. So first learn and then execute.

Hello Friends,

I believe that extra-curricular activities should be made compulsory in school. As it helps to increase our confidence. We come to know the various things besides our syllabus. Also, we get time to move out of our study. Students can raise their confidence through this. Participating in such activities also reduce shyness. In a competitive world, it has become important to be an all-rounder. So that they can survive with rest of the world.

Nowadays, people are going through various problems such as anxiety, stress. So participation in such activities can be helpful. It also adds value in personal improvement.

Hello, myself Krishna Kant.

I want to tell related to this. In my opinion, extracurricular activities are important for the development of a student. Extracurricular activities consist playing, singing, dancing, walking etc. Which are used to develop mentally, physically. It also makes better health. It is directly proportional to our academic activities like study.

But in case if a student who doesn't like ie. Dance than you don't make any pressure to have an interest in dance. Because if a student has own interest in other things that he or she do better effort for other activities which he like its the better. And quotes is there'free bird fly high' Thank you.

Hello everyone.

According to my point of view, Extracurricular activities are the important part of a student life. This plays an important role in overall development of students. Extracurricular activities like playing, dancing, singing also good in the context of physical and mental health development which is directly proportional to the academics performance also.

But we should promote these things in such a way so students itself choose this rather than compulsion. I would like to quote it famous quotation "free bird fly high" so we need to promote this kind of system where joining extracurricular activities is their choice, not compulsion.

this should be the child's choice. not the parents.

Here is a list of negative points to the statement.

- Low-skilled players
- Not wanting to play
- Cost involved in the school, umpires, coaches, venues
- Different sports that the schools might not have and then be forced to play what they don't want to
- Club being at the same time as school
- Not everyone is wanting to play sport " attitude not being serious
- Won't take it as seriously
- Won't enjoy coming to school
- People might not have time (give up work or club commitments)

Hello guys,

The is no debate in this topic. Definitely extra curricular activities should be made compulsory as it not only results in the all round development of the student, but it also let the student know and explore much more about his own interests and hobbies. Also these activities make students learn various things such as team spirit, leadership skills, communication skills, social skills and also remove stage fright. These small small activities can bring a big change in the students life as they let the students throw off their wings in all directions and fly as high as they wish.

But the only point contradicting is that these activities require many different materials which a poor family can't afford on a daily basis. So I think that the materials for such activities should be provided by the schools and also the schools should conduct various competitions so as to build a spirit of motivation among the students.

If I talk of extracurricular activities then it is most important part to develop a child in school as academically one can only learn out some topics but if one in indulging with extracurricular activities then he or she can find an interest in himself or herself as to develop a child from starting then it is necessary to find out the interest of that child because extracurricular activities helps to groom out the personality in a different way.

These activities will enhance and groom their personality. Directly or indirectly they will learn the basic lessons of life like self-discipline, moral courage, physical courage, hardworking, time management etc.

But at the same time. We should not take this as a competition. Nowadays everyone wants to be better than others. But becoming better by leaving others behind. I don't think thats good. So. With the race of this activities and so called competition. At the same time. We should have unity. Have some morals to do things together.

From my point of view, extra curricular activities should be made compulsory in school. We know that today's generation kids are doing a race in the name of education. Who is going to top in schools or college? Even though many children have good skills in the sports or they are talented in other activities but many times their parents are not allowing them to go for that because that will affect their studies as they thinking. So I must say that it extra curricular activities should make compulsory in school.

AS jack Ma said : Its ok that you are not top in your class be an average student because these kinds of students have only got time to involve in other activities and they can also learn many things.

Today's generation has only bookish knowledge and they are unaware of the real world. By doing extra sports activity they can be fit physically. By involving in other games and activities your brain functioning will also increase.

Hi everyone.

I am Krish.

I think extracurricular activities should be made compulsory in the school. Some of the reasons why I prefer to be made it compulsory.

1. In ancient days children used to have physical activity a lot, but nowadays children are not showing any interest towards it.

2. In those days, parents argue with children for not coming to home even after playing hours of time, but now the scenario is quite reversed- parents are interested to send children for outdoor games rather sticking to phones idle in the home.

3. As of not having these extra-curricular activities, children are becoming sluggish and dawdle to move, so infact their mental activity will also be disturbed.

Hello fried in my opinion.

Extracurricular activities should be made compulsory in schools for the following reasons.

1. Activities make our mind free from studies.
2. Children learn sportsman spirit from them.
3. Their body is fit and healthy.
4. This will also aid the school to find the hidden talent and potential of the future sports person.
5. They help to channelize the boundless energy of kids.
6. This will certainly raise the standard of our performance globally.

On the other hand, sometimes extra curricular activities are not good for the following reasons.

1. It can damage the personality of a physically weak child. Such a child will develop an inferiority complex.
2. Moreover, some kids prefer being engrossed in books which provide them enough diversion.

I feel that games are absolutely essential for a balanced personality development where the mind and body grow in tandem.

I agree that extra curricular activities should be made compulsory in school. In this competitive world, students are more focusing on their academics and they hardly get any time to do some extra curricular activities. If these activities are made compulsory as a part of schooling then not only students will be able to devote their time to what they love but also if he excels in that activity then he may take that the activity as a profession.

One of the reason, why India is behind other nations when it comes to sports is that sports is not compulsory in our schools due to which we are not able to recognize our sportsmen at the early stage of their life.

Generally, parents prefer their children should follow their seniors who were well settled, their chosen path obviously will be education, so many student's skills, wishes were being burried alive.

When we have achieved some tremendous results because of our hidden talents that were put forth. So our parents vision on our career may change at the stage secondary education itself which is the most crucial time to our personality development.
