Co-Curricular activities are now considered to be the intrinsic part of the educational endeavour in a school. Till lately these were called extracurricular activities. But now we call them co-curricular activities. Curricular and Co-Curricular activities are now considered complementary to each other both deserving equal weight and emphasis in the total program of the school.
Secondary Education Commission has aptly remarked ” we do not visualize school as merely a place of formal learning whose main concern is to communicate a certain, prescribed quantum of knowledge but rather as a living and organic community which primarily interested in training its pupils in what we called gracious art of living . The art of living is much more comprehensive concept that the acquisition of knowledge however intelligently planned. It included training in the habit and graces of social life and capacity for co-operative group work. These can only be cultivated in the context of the social life and the many Co-Curricular activities that must find a recognized place in the School.
