GESON Co-Curricular Activities
Activities which are apart and outside the existing curriculum were formerly known as extra curricular activities. But items which are related with the development of children and parts of school activities should be called co-curricular activities. Education is no longer treated as something stored in the text-books; text books can only provide some information, but its role for imparting total education is limited. Children today need knowledge, skill and personality. These three requisites are supposed to be provided by the school. A responsible citizen should possess certain basic qualities of personality such as self control, sympathy, fellow feeling, honesty etc. Co-curricular activities are, therefore, a series of activities related with the school programme, which help to bring out all round development of the students, apart from the subjects for examination schedule.
The students of the School take part in various co-curricular activities. Singing, dance and dramatics are just a few of them. What is remarkable about singing and dance is that students themselves write the lyrics of the songs, set them to music, compose the whole song and choreograph the dance. They act in classical plays known for their merit in world literature. The make-up and the stage decoration is done by the students where teacher’s contribution is minimal.
