Today ‘games and sports’ have become an integral part of the present- day school education. Of late educationists, teachers and school administrators have come to realise the importance of sports and games in school life.
Once upon a time games and sports were looked upon merely as a ‘period of break’ to extend the muscles, and to give a time of rest to the students. But today its value has been mostly recognised, and is considered as an integral part of school curriculum.
One of the prime considerations in having games and sports in school is to develop the inborn sports talents of students. If proper opportunities are given, young children full of energy and vigour can excel in sports and games. Our can excel in sports and games. School is not only a place to develop student’s mental abilities but also a place where they can develop their hidden sports talents. Our P.T. Usha, Sunil Gavaskar, Sachin Tendulkar, Anju Bobby George, etc., did not emerge out of the moon. They all got a good start during their school life.


The value of sports and games in breaking the monotony of school life cannot be undermined. Generally games are provided after several periods of classes. It enables the students to relax. It gives them vigour and fresh energy. Time was when only a few students, who were fond of games like hockey, football, cricket or tennis, were allowed special facilities. But now regular programmes are drawn up in all educational institutions to persuade as many students as possible, regardless of special aptitudes, to participate in games, and not merely watch matches occasionally to cheer up their favourite teams or attend the prize distribution functions at the end of a sports season.
The college encourages all students to participate in sports activities and physical training. A dedicated physical trainer has been appointed for the same. College sends the promising students to the training programs conducted by the college. Students also participate in camps, hikes, sports seminars & workshops organized by the College.The college organizes ‘Sports Week’ every year when a whole lot of events.
