Extracurricular Activities

Extracurricular Activities and their Importance

Extracurricular activities are performed by students with their interest and not for getting grades in exams.A study conducted by surveying school-age students in the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health revealed that 70% of adolescents are involved in some form of extracurricular activities.

Other studies have shown being involved in extracurricular activities reduces the likelihood of dropping out of school, likelihood of committing a criminal offense, and leads to higher educational retainment and success and achievements in school work,not to mention that the greatest advantage of participating in at least one of these activities is the decrease in anti-social behaviors and students growing up to be more successful in communication and relationships. Students in our school are free to perform activities such as dancing, performing arts such as drama, joining school band or music related activities, cheer leaders and various quiz competitions. 

Activities

A Place where Fun Begins but doesn’t End!

TVS is the busiest place on earth. Momentum is very high and exciting, children follow a daily routine of activities designed to build specific skills with each day being different. Our children learn through singing, listening stories, dramatics/ plays, group projects, and outdoor games etc. These activities provide opportunities for creativity, and lead to development of physical co-ordination, emotional maturity, practicality and social skills.

A Child learns the most through fun and learning by which their minds are sharpened, energy channelized and potential fully developed. Through these play activities – children grow up making their own decisions and discoveries. Besides this, a climate of creativity is maintained throughout the year. Activities like painting, rhyming, singing, clay modelling, block building, fancy dress, movie shows, etc. are being organized in the school at regular intervals.

We at TVS celebrate each festival and thus try and inculcate in the child from a very early age social and religious acceptance and tolerance embroidered in mutual love and respect. Summer camps/hobby classes & various competitions are also conducted for children.

      Through our “We Care Program” we even encourage the Grand Parents to come and join us in our festivities so that the kids develop an inseparable bond with them, especially because nowadays the elderly are experiencing the lack of social security, and are usually neglected and isolated.
