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.

Yes, extra curricular activities should be made compulsory in school. Forget about the competitions first child should learn to live his life right. 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.

And these curricular activities will also make child to relax from studies for a while. And following are the main advantages having extra curricular activities in school.

Yes, extracurricular activities should be made compulsory in school because it is must for the overall development of a student. In today's world, the competition level is so high, so in order to survive in this world, every person requires some skills which are communication skills, leadership skills, persuasive skills, social skills and much more. The way in which a person could develop these skills in himself starts from participating in these extracurricular activities.

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.

The child may not want to play sports. you can still be healthy and not play the sport.
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)
- Cost for parents to make child play school

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.

Yes. I think extracurricular activities must be there in the schools. Our upcoming generation should learn to live practical life rather than be a bookworm. 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.

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.

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.

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.

Yes, it should be made compulsory in school as it gives refreshment to the students. If you see in private school the teachers make their rules and student have to follow the particular rules what the teachers had made. But this is not the perfect way to identify the abilities of a student as a different student has different types of qualities and skills. Some students have skills in dancing, some are sports, some are in martial arts etc and etc. By conducting these activities we can able to know each student's abilities, mind-power and their confidence. So from school days, if they have done some extra curricular activities, then they will be habituated which will make them very expressive in the society.

Extracurricular activity important to everyone because in future they make a special identification by the help of extracurricular activity at any place because most of the student take part in activity in their child life but when they grow or time passed their participation became less in activities because when they reached in board class they concentrate only on study and don't take part in any activity so from here their participation becomes less and finally they leave activities and in colleges few people take participate in extracurricular activity so by the help of these activities they get special attention from anyone.

What I think is extracurricular activities must be a part of the daily schedule to energise oneself. It boosts up confidence and freshens up the mind.

Yes. I think extracurricular plays an important role in developing one's activeness and to be fit and healthy. Students studying in a school needs some physical activities to be mentally and physically active during lectures and other things. Their tiredness gets vanished if they are involved in such type of activities. I think campaigning should be there to make aware the peoples regarding the importance of being physically fit and healthy. School should include a period daily in which students are able to do such type of activities.

Hello everyone.

I believe as much as regular studies are important for a child's growth, extracurricular activities also play a vital part in it, because it not only ensures the revitalization of their mind and body through the activities they love but also will help them socialize more effectively with the group if people who share similar interests, which in turns will help them to connect and be with similar minded people as themselves. Knowing that there are other fields except for the regular studies where they can exhibit their potential will reduce the feeling of insecurities concerning their peers and they will know that there is somewhere they belong, even if isn't their science or history class. They'll know as well as their parents that what they lack in logical studies, they compensate with their creativity.

Yes, this should be made compulsory because today we see that everyone is busy in study and they have a very burden. On the name of extra curricular activity they played video games. Then how their mind devlop for another thing and they have no time for any activity because they spend their all time in studies because they have pressure about that secure good marks in exams, this is good but if they doesnt take part in any extra curiculler activity then their mind will not prepare for other thing because I think if student give attention only in study then they get depressed because their mind convert according to that while if they take part in extra curriculler activity then they feel freshly and also their mind and they also choose that what they want in future means in which field they have intrest.

So that they can show their talent in every department. Sports can help students to improve their strength, ability to be positive. They will learn from their failures.

I feel privileged to express my views on this topic and become a part of the discussion with everyone here.

Extra curricular or Co-Scholastic (based on Latin word 'scholasticus' means "devote one's leisure to learning") activities has become an integral part of our Education system and everyday life. These activities teach the very essence, why human beings are called superior than other animals. We often find solace in doing activities which not only help us connect to our interests but also boosts our all round development as Citizens of Future. In fact taking short breaks from studies to pursue our interests helps improve concentration and learning power because of stimulation of brain cells and 'happy' hormones.

Schools play a very vital role in developing a little child into a responsible citizen of the country. Children should be given opportunities to participate and engage in various co scholastic activities, to name a few debates, games and sports, cultural activities, social and ecological activities and suchlike. These help foster the developmental process of children into adults.

Participation of students and encouragement of teachers and parents on this aspect of co scholastic activities (not sidelining scholastics obviously) should not be merely to gain marks but lessons to treasure throughout life.

Thanks for the patient reading.

Have a good day !

Extracurricular activities are those activities apart from studies that improve the physical as well as mental health of students. These activities can play a major role in generating the sportsmanship in students. Students can learn how to respect your opponent and other team members. Students can learn how to handle a situation so that a predicted result can be generated. For example in activities like cricket, football, students can learn how to change the strategy so that they can defeat another team. These activities can help in building the stamina of the students. Students can know each other deeply.

They can provide a platform so that students can refresh their mind and body after long hours of study. That's why extracurricular activities should be made compulsory in schools.

Extra -curricular activities should be compulsory. But keeping this point in mind that it would not harm another academic programs. The time management in college or school is actual problem because if both will be there, then it is difficult to complete the academic course on time. So before making it compulsory, restructure the syllabus.

Today's children are tomorrow's citizens. To have a healthy future world, children are to be physically and mentally strong. Children are the pillars of the society.

Extracurricular activities make a person creative, skill orient and talentive. They increasesimaginative power ofchildren. They build up analytical thinking and reasoning skills. Making children stick to studies is not a good thing. Government should bring up policies to make extra curricular activities compulsory at school level.

To stand in today's competitive world academics are not enough. Extracurricular activities like sports build up stamina and makes children fit. Activities like public speaking removes stage fear and boosts confidence from the root level as 72% of the people are suffering from stage fear all over the world.

Students need play as well as studies to have the right balance in life.

ECA not only provide a break from routine studies but also help the students to improve their health.

It is a way to bind with different people and often enhance the team spirit in children.

Some people think that making compulsory will take the fun out of it, but I think it should be made compulsory because it is good for their health. Children don't study by giving their 100% but also we are making them study. So why not we make them do some other activity?

Hii everyone.

Extracurricular activities should me made necessary in every school because it may help the students to gain the knowledge as well as skill. Academics is not only the main for every child they have a freedom to participate in any activities whether it may be extra or co-curricular activity. Some schools force the children to study by saying that study is only the thing which gives you all but the main thing is study is not only the part but extracurricular activities should be included in the school.

The government should encourage the schools to awake the talents in students by conducting several extracurricular activities.

Even the parents should understand their children mindset in which aspect they are interested.

So, the schools should conduct extracurricular activities like NSS, sports, dance and singing competitions.

Extracurricular activities should be compulsory not only in school but also in every department because extra things or activities create a interest inside you and provide you an entertainment. Some weakness es also overcome by extra curricularities. For example if a person habit is introvert, he cann't interact with new people. Some times interaction with new people is very necessary and in that case that person will be failed. If he participate in extracurricularities then he has to interact with new people. So for this extracurricularities are very important in every stage of life.

According to me, to make compulsion for extracurricular activities is very necessary for childhood. There are many students who are not aware of their area of interest, so made compulsion is helped to find out their area of interest. To do any other activity except academics, allows children to find their passion. It also helps to think out of the box and increase creativity level which is very important thing to build our future.

Extracurricular activities help to develop our personality, our thinking ability, it teaches lots of things which are helpful for survival which is never taught by any kind of book. It also helpful to achieve more things in life.

Extra-curricular activities should be made compulsory in school.

Let me start with a proverb "ALL WORK AND NO PLAY MAKES JACK A DULL BOY". I fully agreed that education is the most important element in one's life. Nowadays, we can see that the whole curriculum and education standard is completely changed. It is quite helpful in developing the all-round personality in children. Extracurricular activities should be made compulsory in school so that they can interact with teachers and with their friends more and more. Nowadays we can see that most of the students are struggling with the stress in this competitive era so it will be very helpful for them if extracurricular activities are a part of their curriculum in their school. It will be helpful in creating their interest in both academics as well as extra curriculum activities. Through this, they can learn teamwork and will lead to a balanced and enjoyable life.

Extracurricular activities should be made compulsory in school as it will lead to the all-round development of the children.

A good touch with Art, Dance, Music and Sport will allow the children to find their passion in life.

Who knows children with great passion may become another Sachin, Messi, A. R. Rahaman, Mickel Jackson. These Extracurricular activities will be the initiation for the great passion. It also changes their perception of the world to think different and achieve more in life.

Hello guys, according to me, extracurricular activities is necessary because at school level every student got bored with mathematics, English. They are feeling stressed. They need some refreshment. So by providing extracurricular activities, they are able to focus, concentrate on their academics.

2nd point is that by extracurricular activities we are able to know the capability of the different student in different area like swimming dancing singing and by knowing this we are able to explore that students in that area. It gives a talented person to our nation. Every student has their strengths in the different area, it's college responsibility to know the strengths by making extracurricular compulsory to colleges.
