Games and sports form an integral part of school curriculum. We have all heard the old saying “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”. The importance of games or sports for children has become even more relevant in our current times, and schools have a prominent part to “play” in it. Increases in self-esteem and mental alertness make school sports and games necessary for every school age child.
The benefits of playing sports are multiple, and it leads to balanced mental and physical growth. It teaches the children life skills like teamwork, leadership, patience. It inculcates discipline and playing within the rules. It builds sportsmanship, which is to play within the spirits of the game and to deal with both winning and losing with grace.
