Children today spend less than half the time playing outdoors than their parents did and are less likely to spend time outdoors at school. They are growing up in an increasingly indoor, sedentary and virtual world, ever more divorced from the real world around them. This has a significant impact on their physical health, emotional wellbeing, social competence and their connection with the natural world and their local communities.
The best place for children to enjoy the outdoors, learn about the natural world and take vigorous exercise on a regular basis is in the school grounds.
Acknowledging that play has a role in child’s development and learning throughout the school life, play time opens child’s wing to fly in the external world and strengthens the foundation of social life.
The playtime should be included in appropriate ratio with the academics so that it can make the student life joyful and stress free.
To accomplish this, 10 acres of land is dedicated for sports and games. Physical fitness with social, emotional and cooperative learning is emphasized in the playfield.
Play fields are the heart & soul of an institution or an establishment since they are the bulwarks of a healthy society. As a matter of fact our school has rich network of courts & playfields. The facilities available are briefly described:-
