      When co-curricular activities such as sports, drama, clubs, music etc. are integrated in the curriculum, they help learners acquire balanced growth. The following are some of the reasons why students should be encouraged to participate in co-curricular activities while in learning institutions.
      Co-curricular activities encourage collaboration and help achieve goals
      Aggressively going for a common goal with team mates and a team manager, teaches one how to shape a collective synergy and effectively communicate the best way to solve problems en route to victory. This will be very helpful when one encounters problems at place of work or at home. 
      Co-curricular activities boost self esteem
      Realising that hard work pays off brings about self –confidence. Competing and winning in a co curricular activity inspires one to achieve in any other goal set. This is very exciting and rewarding.
      Co curricular activities augment academic work.
      Engaging in co curricular activities requires a lot of time and energy. Sports, drama and Music require skills of memorization, repetition and learning which are directly relevant to class work. For all these reasons, it is always a great decision to get involved in co-curricular activities.
