Going Beyond the Curriculum – Sherwood’s range of extra-curricular activities
We understand that breaking away from the monotony of everyday studying invigorates children. That is why we have a range of extra-curricular activities for them
Colour Days: The vibrancy of childhood is always associated with the brilliance of colours. At Sherwood High, we have colour days once every month. A colour is chosen and children are to come to school in that hue. All activities for the day are around this colour. While the younger children are taught to associate the shade with various objects around them, older ones are given challenging projects surrounding the colour to get them thinking.
Debates: Today, children are an opinionated lot. We believe in channelling these opinions and helping children express themselves better. Debates are regularly conducted at an inter-house level in Hindi, English and Kannada. A topic is chosen and children put forth their opinions, challenging and substantiating their statements.
Elocution: The best way to bring children out of their shell is before their peers. The school holds regular elocution competitions in English, Hindi and Kannada at an inter-class level.
Calligraphy: In a bid to encourage good handwriting, calligraphy competitions are held class-wise on a regular basis. This helps children concentrate on improve their skills at writing.
Music and Melody days: These are competitions that are held class-wise on a regular basis.
