Dear Editor,Education has an important role in the professional development of a person. But, equally important are the other aspects of a person’s life and there needs to be a fine balance of both the curricular and extra-curricular activities to achieve this. The core aim of education is to foster an all-round development of a child which essentially means intellectual, physical, moral, and social development.In that respect, extra-curricular activities form an important part of a student’s life. However many parents view them as ‘wasting time’ as they feel that one cannot achieve anything from them. However, research suggests that it’s not just in the classroom hours that young minds can be nurtured–pupils who participate in extracurricular activities perform better academically and socially. Besides being a stress reliever, these activities boost socialising with peers and also enhance student’s time and management skills. Students participating in extracurricular works are better equipped to live in groups by developing leadership skills and managing stress in an efficient manner. There are different ways in which extra-curricular activities can be encouraged in a school:
