There is no doubt about the fact that physical development of a growing child accelerates his or her academic performance too. The CBSE too has taken steps to add extra time for physical activities to combat the problems of childhood obesity. In a healthy body resides a healthy mind. It is, therefore necessary that the students participate in sports and games. The school curriculum makes it mandatory for every student to participate in sports activities. The students imbibe the qualities of courage and determination, learn to abide by the rules and norms of the games and above all, they inculcate the spirit of sportsmanship, revel in their victory and celebrate the triumph of their opponents.
