I think extracurricular activities must be compulsory in schools because there are many children who come to school just to get through exams with good marks but they are not confident enough to present themselves when given the opportunity to speak or mingle with people.

But in my opinion, extra curricular activities create time management issues as students will not be able to spend time with families after school works and extra curricular activities.

Also, Extra curricular activities comes with extra expenses like registration fees, lesson fees, instruments or materials fees which all parents cannot afford.

After sports activities it leaves the students exhaust which leads to the downgrade in the efficiency in studies.

Also, there are some students who are not good in these activities as they are in education. So they will be demotivated.

And they lead to the downgrade in the grades of academics as they pay more attention to these activities.

So in conclusion, we came that extra curricular activities should be added but it should not be compulsory as students should be given choice if they want to participate or not.

Hi Everyone!

"Yes" it must be compulsory. Even many state's government has made it compulsory in every schools and other states are considering the same to implement.

But I do have a different point from all of you over it which is "Extra Curriculum activities should not be made compulsory" for the students.

First we need to understand why Extra curriculum activities are necessary and why students should participate in school's curricular activities.

Some intellectuals consider extra curricular activities should be the part of study as only grade can't decide and write your future, ECA give students some break from the study and refresh their mind and help them in their overall development, mentally, physically, morally, emotionally and spiritually.

I strongly agree and support to these points and these are the valid points that extra curricular activities are necessary and play a vital role in a students overall growth, they consider ECA helps students to know their inner abilities, their strength, capabilities and also makes a good leader, a good decision makers and a good person etc.

But my question is why compulsory why not optional?

In my point of view, It must be compulsory for every school to have a day or an hour session for the ECA but should not be made mandatory for the students to join extracurricular activities even if they're not interested in because under compulsion neither they can enjoy it nor can feel fresh or definitely they would not choose it as a career if forced. But yes it must be the duty and responsibility of teachers to aware them, encouraging and motivating them towards ECA and make them know the benefits of it, how it is useful for their future, how it could shape their future and then this decision should be left onto the students whether or not they want to enrol themselves for the ECA.

Than you.

Hello everyone,

In my point of view, Extra curricular activities should be made compulsory in each and every school. Students keep on studying for the whole day and they don't have any source of relaxation. Apart from this there are some students who want to build their career in other areas which are not related to education. But since parents say that school education is must, they join in the schools. So, if they have such activities daily they feel relaxed and can also build their career based on their interests.

Extra curricular activities include dance, music, group discussions, sports, and many other. If students get involved in all these they will be able to use their skills in the future also.

The CBSE board had already made sports and Extra curricular activities compulsory in all CBSE affiliated schools. I think that the government is also making it compulsory. But if there is any school still not making it compulsory, then I think its high time now.

According to me, extracurricular activities should be made compulsory in schools, so that children can go for some refreshment activities like playing, singing, dancing, art and crafts etc, which will give a boost to the minds of today's young children. It will further sharpen their minds and enhance their concentration power. Playing different games will help to become better and responsible citizens of the society, because every game is played according to certain rules and breaking the rules means a foul play and a foul play requires some kind of penalty. In this way, children learn the quality of playing fairly and when children gain this attribute they try to implement these qualities in their personal lives. Further, extra curricular activities develop many other qualities like discipline, time management, team spirit, justice.

Yes, from my vantage point of view, it should be made compulsory. Extra co-curricular activities like Debates and talk shows help in building confidence for speaking in front of a large audience and also enables them to use correct hand gestures and use proper body language. Besides what's the point of learning if you can't execute what you have learned. Believe it or not, activities like sports indirectly help in academic performance. If a child is allowed even 30 minutes of play he would feel happier and can concentrate on studies. If he/she is not given this opportunity, it would take their mind off studies and start thinking schools of places where you are "forced to learn" instead of learning.

We all do agree with the fact that not everyone is academically strong. Some are good orator, good sportsperson, good at singing and dancing. So the point is, we have given them at least chances to bring out their hidden talent and cherish it in a proper way.

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, I strongly agree with the statement given to us. In India, very few people choose their career in sports, movies, and other non-academic fields. This is because most of our parents don't allow children to choose their career of their choice. Most of us are forced to do engineering and medicine. So if we make extracurricular activities in school the children will find a platform to build their career in the interested field. Thus the government has to make stringent rules and should provide all amenities to achieve this policy.

In my opinion, alongwith the academics every school must try to motivate students towards extra curricular activities including sports, cultural etc. It will definitely help students to find their field of interest. Government should take solid steps toward this policy knowing the fact that countries like England, Japan and many more having very less population as compare to our country and still win plenty of medals in international level games like Olympics. However nowadays steps have been taken according by our government but still more efforts should be made in order to see our nation as all-rounder country in upcoming years.

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.

In my point of view, it's a major part in the school curriculum. Some of the important points are.

* These days children are not participating in games and playing games in game zones.
* Games improves the stamina of the child and helps him to know his strengths and this strengths.
* Teachers also came to know about their abilities and teach them accordingly.
* Students also should participate in such activities actively to overcome stage fear.

Hey guys!

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. Most of the students are participating in these exams because everyone is doing the same. They are just following blindly without exploring their strength!

Yes, In today's fast pacing world and the highly competitive world it's important to have people who are are not just well read but knowledgeable too.

No doubt education is a must but co curricular activities play an important role in a child's overall development.

-> firstly, children get a break from their routine, which is refreshing.
-> 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!

Therefore, I believe co-curricular activities should be given a great importance in today's schools!

I think that extracurricular activities in school must be made compulsory for students as it not only develop an interest in other fields but also helps a student to reduce his or her stress level.

It is proved in a survey that the students who learn some extra activities too other then academics their stress level is much lesser than the students who just focus on their studies.

Extra-curricular activities also help us to find our interest areas and choose our future career. If student gets encouraged towards sports or other fields from school itself it will help them to choose their future.

Our topic is Extracurricular activities should be made compulsory in school.

Yes, it is very important to make the extracurricular activities compulsory in not only schools but in colleges also if possible. Nowadays even a small child is being pressurised so much to read and become topper of the class in most cases. And marks are given so much of importance which is not fair. The children should be given equal exposure all extracurricular activities which help in personality development, stress relief and moulding them into better citizens as they learn morals, punctuality etc. Through sports like activities.

Nowadays students are committing suicides for getting less marks which is very unfortunate so through extracurricular activities students must be taught the life lessons.

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.

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.

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.
