Yes, obviously, it should be made compulsory because according to my point of view, having good academics skills are not enough in this growing era, one should have sound knowledge of other than studies too so that he can identify his interest and thus develop his skill in that particular field because school is the only first place where a student can keep his first step on the path of his goal based on his interest.

Extra curricular activities should be made compulsory in school. The equal importance will give to both studies and other activities. Not all students have same talent. Everypeople has a unique and different talents. The students will starting their studies and gain their knowledge in school first. So the school management have to organize many events and cultural programs to explore the hidden talents from the students. Also they must give equal importance to sports. They must encourage the students via these activities. This events makes the students relax. Through this student should get a chance to improve their communication skills. It also help them to get a job in future. Extra curricular activities are only helps to brighten the future of students.

Out door games must be compulsory in schools and colleges. As CBSE made compulsory play ground in schools but due to tight schedule of student they don't get time to play.

Yes, of course. The Extracurricular activities should be the part of the education system. Today's life of students is very busy. They don't get time even to play outdoor games, resion may be lack of playground or homework pressure of schools. Sports is as necessary as food for the growth of children. If sports will be the part of the education system then parents also take it seriously and force their children to play.

The performance of India is very in Olympic because our country is unable to produce star sportsman. Very less percentage of students wants to make their own carrier in the sports. They prefer a job in different sectors or do business. The government should give more focus on games in schools and colleges.

Hi friends, in my opinion, I think that extracurricular activities should be made compulsory in schools in order to increase students thinking capabilities. As school cirriculam doesn't provide all necessary aspects for the students. By participating in the extracurricular activities the students are able to overcome their fear and their weakness.

A person spends very crucial time in the school and it can transform one's life if the environment is creative and inspiring. Unfortunately, many schools nowadays have become prisons for the students. Moreover, students don't want to go to schools because they feel trapped in there. Our teachers also lacking the ability to teach with creativity. They are literally making these students a machine which barely responds to human feelings. This is why when these students get into civil services, they can't be effective officers who can feel and care about some of the problems we face as a society. Extra-curricular activities take you away from your books and the formal environment and push you towards an unfamiliar and informal environment where you totally rely on your own mind and this is where creativity kicks in and make you more expressive about things.

I think extracurricular activities are as important as regular studies. There is a lot of advantages as if you play sports, you will get healthy. Extracurricular activities also improve the knowledge about outside world.

More importantly, it gives you experience. Like experience in giving a public speech, or writing an essay. And it improves the communication skills and also helps to meet new people. And the most important thing, children come to know their field of interest.

One more example to say extracurricular activities is us, look at us, we are doing group discussion to get placed. And if there are two schools wherein one school there is extracurricular activities whereas in another school there isn't. Then the school children of the second school can't compete with the children of other schools in activities like speech, group discussion. So it helps to build confidence also.

Most of the schools will have extracurricular activities, but it reduces when you see colleges, I think it should change.

Yes. Extracurricular activities should be treated on par with studies. They make children expand their thinking ability what we call as lateral thinking. Mental stress gets reduced by getting involved in sports and others. But in a country like India people of the middle class don't know the importance of extracurricular activities. They think everything is reading books, which is a big myth. According to me they just want their children to get settled in life with a good salary, but it is not their fault. So schools should make every student participate in those for their welfare.

Hello every one,

First of all I would like to thank for giving this opportunity.

According to my view, extracurricular activities are very important from initial stage onwards. School students with their academics they should also concentrate towards these extracurricular activities such that they can initially good at their physical and mental abilities. These bring them sportive spirit, leadership qualities (those are very important in our present situation), decision making, and many more. They bring down feeling of stress.

. These activities make an individual to feel comfortable with different people as they can habitat to adjust to people of different opinion. Extra cultural activities make children relief from their daily academics and bring mental relief. In the same way, they can improve their speaking skills. For all these activities students required different properties for them, schools should provide everything. They should bring some awareness among the students and in the same way in parents too. Schools based on private can supply what the students required but these should be followed in government sector also.

If these extracurricular activities are not there then students can't show or enrich their talents. So from childhood on wards students should be managing with curricular activities in schools.

Extracurricular activities are as imp as academic studies. This should be made compulsory for EACH student in school. Because-.

1. This keeps them fit both mentally & physically, which is the utmost requirement for bright future of INDIA.

2. Especially in India, we found youth are more confused than confident! So, by involving in different activities from childhood, in future, they can easily choose their carrier in which they are passionate about.

3. By involving in different sports activities they can learn many things. Like how to be a good team player, how to be a responsible leader etc.

4. These activities are surely going to raise their self-esteem, so that they can think and act independently. (These two qualities are very important to be successful in a carrier).

5. This also going to help in developing better communication skill, which is very important to express their ideas and thoughts with everyone.

This will surely go to decrease unemployment percentage in INDIA. Because nowadays it is found that, students in lakhs (able or unable) competing in many competitive exams.

-> Secondly, children may explore their talents which they may later pursue as a career.
-> Thirdly, different co-curricular activities have their own benefit.

* Activities like extempore, recitation, debating, group discussions, quizzes, hone a child's speaking and Mental skills!

* Activities like sports are all team building activities which teach children about games spirit and team spirit (Plus have amazing physical health benefits too).

* Activities like theatre, drama or dances boost a child's self-confidence and make them independent. They Never get a stage fright and become bold enough to speak their minds and take actions!

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.

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.

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.

In my opinion, Extra Curricular activities are important in one's life. Just think of the fact that we are here to read the examples of group discussion and make opinion on them. Don't you think if group discussion was a part of extracurricular activities you might have an experience of the same. People learn from experiences rather than learning from books. And extracurricular activities provides the insight for the same. More the experience you have, the better you'll perform.

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.

In my opinion, it should be made compulsory in school. Because in our daily life, we face a lot of problems which can't be solved only by academic knowledge. Extracurricular activities help us in enhancing our personal personality, it creates management skills, how to solve real-life problem.

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.

Only studies nowadays won't keep the brain strong nor active if used in other extracurricular we get to know in which field is he/she capable are he/she are interested in.

I think extra-curricular activities must be made compulsory in school because there are a lot of children who come to school just to get through exams in good scores but they won't be confident enough to present themselves when given a chance to speak up or mingle with people. And that fear can be mitigated better in the childhood. Once they grow up their unconfident nature will create obstacles for them at different times.

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

It is a " BIG", from my side.

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.

This can only be done by the concrete efforts of parents and institutions. One should not impact the stress of being studious only, my child has the caliber to go with these important co-curricular activities.

Some teachers they do not give the answer for our question. These teachers they are waste in teaching a student, and must be sent away from the school.

According to me, It should be banned. Think of it, childrens must read at this age. Everyone knows that these education system are only mark basis. And syllabus is also vast. 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. Students interested on games are acceptable. Everyone cannot become sachin or dhoni. Everyone is strong in their own field. Leave it to their choice. They will choose their life. Thankyou.

Let's think about that what does exta curriculum activity do to us, It gives us a various way to live life as we want. It gives the freedom that if you are not good in study. You are not USELESS, you can be something. You can be different. What makes these activities so crucial.

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.

So if we will provide these things from the start. We will be able to provide them a better future.
