Why are sports important during school …….

The start of the sports division has been gradually giving us the success that we have aimed for and we continue to strive hard in that direction. The involvement and the unstinted support from the Dr Antonio Da Silva Trustees in the creation of the sports division for the promotion and development of sports in school cannot go unnoticed. For any project to be successful it has to have the unstinted support of the management and in this regard the trustees deserve a big salute once again for their efforts in seeing that sports plays an important role in the development of the school children.

A healthy mind resides in a healthy body and physical activity stimulates the physical and mental growth of the child and it has positive effects on their studies as well. The digital era has brought in major shift in the way children spend their free time and it is important for parents and teachers to bring the children back onto the ground.

Through spirited play geared towards individual ability levels trainees will learn multiple sports gain self confidence and acquire a love for sports to match their talent and interest. An individual who plays regularly not only develops a healthy body but also develops better body strength and better hand eye mind coordination.

competition and pressure sports helps to reduce anxiety and provide a stress free and mentally free environment.
