    Benefits of Sports Activities in a Private Primary School

    Engaging in sports activities at a private primary school offers numerous benefits to children. Apart from the physical well-being achieved through regular exercise, sports also contribute to the overall growth and development of the child. Participating in athletics tournaments teaches children valuable life skills such as discipline, teamwork, and perseverance. They gain a sense of accomplishment and boost their self-confidence when they achieve their goals. The camaraderie and healthy competition fostered in sports help children build lasting friendships and essential social skills.


    The outstanding achievements of our private primary school athletes at the AIJS Tournament are a testament to their hard work, talent, and dedication. We applaud their accomplishments and acknowledge the support and guidance they receive from our dedicated teachers and coaches.
