Develop smart kids through extra curricular activities:
Every school nowadays promotes extra-curricular activities with main-stream learning as parents have grown their insights on many other fields of study than book reading. Mainstream learning is not given much importance in today’s modern era as we all know that we create a handful of geeks through studies who are good for nothing other than studies. On the other hand, extra-curricular activities give real world experience to our kids exploring things in a concrete manner than an abstract one. This helps the child to understand things better and enjoy it at the same time.
Extra curricular activities:

Art & Craft:
One of our favourite period during the school hours. Art and craft is always enjoyed by the kids. They love to draw and create new things. They love to dip themselves into different colours and their imagination. Art and craft is something which takes the kids to the world of their imagination and create new things. This helps them to connect with their thought process. So let your kid draw whenever they want.
Music and dance:
Our Indian culture is incomplete without music and dance. Different types of music soothes our mind and soul. And when we are good singers, it helps to express our feelings. Dance, on the other hand, is enjoyable as well as keeps us physically fit.
