Co-curricular activities are a waste of time and money. Do you agree ?
 
Co-curricular activities are activities that are planned for students after school through clubs and uniformed societies. Students are required to join at least one uniformed unit and a club. In my opinion, these activities play an important role in a student's life and are therefore not a waste of time and money.

First and foremost, co-curricular activities provide a broadening experience for students to learn about themselves, other people, and the community at large through the various activities organized such as camping, school trips, games, project work and campaigns. For example, when students go on a study tour, they are given a chance to encounter situations and opportunities in the real world, beyond the school gate.

Apart from that, co-curricular activities provide students with a chance to develop other aspects such as music, sports and other living skills. Some students are unable to shine in the classroom but they are superb athletes and musicians. Confined to the demands of their studies, they are unable to develop their talents and may be branded as failures. Co-curricular activities help these students to become fulfilled individuals.

Besides that, these activities provide leadership training for students. They get a chance to learn how to lead a team. They learn organizational skills such as planning, budgeting and problem-solving, all of which the classroom situation may be unable to provide. They learn discipline and co-operation, tolerance and understanding.

In addition, co-curricular activities provide an outlet for students to rest and relax after a hard day's work. Students get to play, laugh and release their tension through the various club activities held, such as quizzes, treasure hunts and various games. As there are many types of clubs and societies, there is almost something for everyone. For those who do not like outdoor games, they can always join a chess club or a cookery club. For the active and restless, they can join the football club or the netball club. Various competitions and selections are held and some students are picked to represent their schools.

Co-curricular activities certainly play an important role in a student's life. They complement the activities of the classroom. In a nutshell, a well-planned co-curricular program helps students become wholesome individuals. Thus, co-curricular activities are definitely not a waste of time and money.
