The meaning of co-curricular activities revolves around its different features and characteristics. Ken Robinson rightly says it all, “Creativity is as important now in education as literacy and we should treat it with the same status.” Complementing curricular activities, co-curriculum improves a student’s performance by conditioning him with exercises like yoga, arts and student council. Students here are offered extra credits for their participation in such co-curricular activities, though co-curriculum is itself not graded. The lines distinguishing curriculum from co-curriculum are blurry as many co-curricular activities aid the students to perform better in class.
These are practical and tangible learning opportunities that put what students learn into some form of action. School clubs, like computer, book or chess club or teams such as debate or quiz team are considered co-curricular as well as extra-curricular as these not only improve a child’s mental and physical well-being, but also aid him in performing well in his grades. Our school has a well built library for students to improve their understanding of different subjects as well as develop a habit of reading different genres of books. Co-curriculum at PIBS helps some students learn material that they would otherwise be unable to grasp in the theoretical lessons during class
