Co-curriculum activity - Sports

It has been often debated in the recent past, whether sports should be compulsory at school or not! It cannot be denied that sports enhance the abilities of the child and develop challenging spirits. In the age of television, computer and video games, school students are becoming highly inactive which consequently leads to obesity in their later life. So, we at South City International School believe that sports activities should be encouraged from the very early days. Sports and outdoor games play a very important part in development of a healthy and fit body. Therefore we have incorporated Outdoor as well as Indoor school sports activities in our curriculum. Training is given by qualified, dedicated and experienced coaches which caters to the all-round development of a child.
