Some people have always been supporting the school of thought which says “co-curricular activities are wastage of time,” since long. Even some of the teachers are of the same view too.
But recently, people are encouraging teachers too, to take part in co-curricular activities along with students.
The less fortunate students, who come from economically unstable families, prefer co-curricular activities, more to learn extra things at school.
The teachers by participating in such activities can help these students in learning something new without paying extra money.
Let’s discuss how co-curricular activities can help students in getting better grades?
Teaching The Public Relations
Very often than not students of different grades work together in co-curricular activities, which improves their PR skills.
Public relations mean your ability to make connections. Students need PR (Public Relations) more than anyone.
Stronger bonds with seniors mean they can learn a thing or two from them, and with juniors, means they get a chance to teach.
Learning is a common point of both commitments, which will reflect on the grades of students.
The Smart Work
Some Co-curricular tasks teach kids, how to be organized, which is always a big help in studies. Working hard sometimes can take a while to show results, so work smart is the new slogan.
Co-curricular activities teach a child on how to work smart, how to manage time while studying. It also prepares the student, how to keep a balance between physical activities and education.
Teaching A Second Language
Some schools provide extra language classes after the usual school timings. Now it is a known fact that learning a second language is total bliss.
It will not only open the doors of a whole new world of literature to the student, but it is also a plus in resume.
The employers like to have people in their companies who can offer something special and unique.
Helping In Admissions
Schools now are taking the co-curricular activities seriously than ever before. The admissions are now based 90 percent on academic performance 10 percent on the co-curricular activities.
So, the students who are excusing the extra activities from schools so that they can concentrate on academics must take note.
More time with the teacher
When a student signs up for a co-curricular, it means s/he gets to spend more time with the teacher.
It is also crucial for the teachers, it is an effective way of repairing a broken relationship with students.
More time with teacher means you can approach your teacher for any academic problem even after the school.
During the extra activities, students get chance to stronger the bond with their teachers too, which is always a bonus.
So, these are advantages students who choose co-curricular activities have over the others students.
One must not mix co-curricular activities with extracurricular activities. Co-curricular activities are activities related to the academics, where extracurricular activities are leaning on more of the fun side.
Let the students be independent learners. Students are learning a lot of things what others are learning too; hence, these activities will give them a leading edge.
