Most schools in foreign countries have as much provision for sports and games as for studies. In India, our schools are still lacking in this respect. Our authorities are trying to provide necessary arrangements for sports and games.

They should not only develop the mind but also the body

The syllabus of schools should be so planned that games and studies can be balanced to provide for a development of the personality of the student. Mere studies are not enough. Similarly, mere sports have no vales. The two should be blended in a suitable way so that the student can have the best of both. They should not only develop the mind but also the body. Without the mind the body is nothing, just as without the body the mind has no value. Both are important for the development of a good personality.

Games and sports have great value in a student’s life

The foundations for good life are laid in the school. If at an early age a student develops the taste for studies and sports in a proper way, he can become an ideal citizen in his later life. The sports field teaches many things to the student. It gives him discipline. It develops his sportsman spirits, team spirit, board outlook, cheerful nature, sense of humor and strong physique. All these are important traits of successful life. If a student can study seriously and diligently and still take part in sports and games, he would make an ideal personality.

Only healthy students can become good citizens of tomorrow

It is for these reasons that various public service commissions and business firms prefer to take those persons on their good jobs who have taken a keen interest in sports during their school and collage days.

On the sports field a student learns manners, etiquette and the capacity to face victory or defeat. Even when he loses in game he shakes hands with the victor. This spirit gives him an unbiased out look.

Most schools in foreign countries have as much provision for sports and games as for studies. In India, our schools are still lacking in this respect. Our authorities are trying to provide necessary arrangements for sports and games. For sports and games, play grounds, good equipment and well trained teachers in physical education are necessary. Only healthy students can become good citizens of tomorrow.
