Many parents feel that including sports and games in the school curriculum is a waste of students' time and energy. Do you agree ?
 
It is undeniable that games and sports are an important part of school life. In fact, some people feel that sports should be made a compulsory curriculum in schools. The role of schools is to produce young people who are academically good. I disagree with the view that students should not waste time on sports.

Firstly, sports plays a more meaningful role in developing positive values in students. It builds up leadership skills in students who are active in games and sports. Every game requires a leader or captain. The leader or captain gets good training on leadership skill by leading the team. Playing games or sparts also requires teamwork, initiative and a sense of responsibility.

Moreover, games and sports provide a healthy avenue for students to exercise and relax after a bout of studies. As they play, they get to release tension and stress. After a game or match, their minds are recharged and they go back to their books in a better frame of mind.

Students who are not so academically good might end up to be good in certain games. If that is the case, participation in sports in school can help them develop their interest and ability in sports. They may even develop a career in sports. This would be a good option to those students who cannot obtain degrees in academic courses.

Students who play sports quickly learn that sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. They learn to be a good sport in both situations. It also helps them learn to deal with disappointment and go on.

Statistics show that kids who are active in sports while in high school are more likely to experience academic success and graduate from high school.

The best part of sports is that playing it is fun. It gives the child something to do and a group to belong to. Students have a group of friends that has the same goals and interests. Young people who play sports are more likely to have a positive body image and higher self-esteem. They are also less likely to take drugs or smoke because they realise the impact that these destructive activities can have on their performance.

In my view, schools should make sports an important activity in the school curriculum. By so doing, they are not neglecting their mission in producing young people who are academically good. Every school should encourage sports. Through participation in games and sports, schools teach students good traits and values. Of course, good values can also be instilled during class lessons. However, if these values can also be instilled through playing sports, then sports is definitely not a waste of time and energy.
