In today’s world with its ever-increasing complexities children are subjected to psychological pressures and it is highly imperative that they should acquire the necessary skills for managing the multifarious activities which they are supposed to do without getting stressed. It can be said, without inviting any debate, that such activities can provide the much-needed outlet for de-stressing young minds. Apart from that, it prepares students for facing the outside world when they step out of the protected portals of their academic institutions by instilling confidence, social skills, interpersonal skills and inculcating team spirit and conflict resolution skills. These objectives form the essence of after school activities for the Upper School, at New School.
