The Department of Youth and Sports(DYS) under the Ministry of Education looks after games and sports activities in our schools across the country. Besides the practical classes, we also conduct theory classes and teach them the laws of games during club hours. Academic learning and sports education are very much interrelated. They are the two sides of the same coin. Sport education is considered an integral part of the curriculum along with theory classes. It leads to the development of the personality of an individual. It complements the overall growth of a person in every sphere. This subject is indirectly a practical performance for all the subjects one learns in academics. The basics of Physics, Maths, Geography, Chemistry, Biology all are applied in every level of the sports field.
There are several benefits of having sports education as a club in schools, it teaches the student teamwork, dedication, discipline, and punctuality. It makes students courteous in life. Exercising sports activities daily keeps them fit and healthy, protecting them from numerous diseases such as arthritis, obesity, heart problems, etc...
Sports also build confidence and leadership qualities in an individual. It teaches them how to face all the challenges and cross the hurdles by removing all the weaknesses, to carry on in life. All these events play an important role in physical development, as physical activity stimulates growth and leads to improved physical and mental health.

Knitting Club is one of the clubs being run in the school. Initially, it was planned to be carried out as a weaving club but due to lack of resources to procure the materials for backstrap loom and necessities, this club was started. This club is underway as a part of the wholesome development of the school.
Currently, the club is facing a shortage of funds to buy materials for knitting. Each student was asked to come with their own yarn and knitting needles but it seems they are unable to afford it. With whatever little yarn and needles we got, the coordinators are running the club with much enthusiasm. As of now, there are twelve members and two full-time club coordinators, and a teaching practice teacher running the club.
The main objective of the club is to promote knitting skills and to provide basic skills on knitting that would help students to become independent learners and also to keep them engaged during their free time.
