An all round development of the students depends on the academic, sports and extracurricular activities. The prizes are awarded to the students who work hard during the year. It is not just the talented but the steady performers who are rewarded.
The sports and cultural activities bring out the ideas of the teachers and the talents of the students. The students’ achievements on the stage, on the sports field or in studies indicate their interest, confidence, hard-work and determination in the respective fields.
If you spend some time in reflection on what takes place within you, you gain personal knowledge. If you limit yourself to text-books, you become a book-worm. If you limit your reading to what you do in class, your knowledge is stunted. So read material besides that what is presented in your text books for a fuller and richer knowledge.
