The importance of sports and games is being increasingly recognised in India, from both the educational and social points of view. More and more funds are being allocated for encouraging sports in schools; in fact, sports have become an essential part of the curriculum. Sports foster friendship and amity.
Participation in games and sports invariably ensures good health, fitness and, generally, freedom from ailments of various types. Regular participation in sports provides a healthy channel for diversion of energies. Wherever students and other youth participate in sports regularly, misdirection of youthful vigour is much less and the tendency to indulge in indiscipline and mischief is curbed.
Young people have surplus energy, and if this is fruitfully utilised, the foundations are laid for a healthy society, where people are fully aware of the need for discipline, co-operative effort, team spirit, the cult of sportsmanship, of joint devotion to the achievement of a common goal in collaboration with others.
They also learn to cultivate the vital quality of learning how to work together, to become not only good winners, but also good losers. The statement that "the battle of Waterloo was won on the playfields of Eton", implying that playing games and the spirit of sportsmanship help to inculcate lasting values, which make for good soldiers, good fighters and good discipline, apart from promoting 100 percent physical fitness.
At KCM WORLD SCHOOL the fullest importance is given to sports, especially cricket ,football, golf, volley ball, swimming and many others. Playing the game on the playground naturally instructs our students to play the game of life in the right spirit, which is what matters most, not victory or defeat.
