Increased physical activity during the school day can help children's attention, classroom behaviour, and test scores. Meanwhile, the decline of play is closely linked to ADHD; behavioural problems; and stunted social, cognitive, and creative development.
Holistic education is a myth, without sports in the curriculum. The Annual inter-school sports competition organised by Greenfield Public School was a huge success. It gave a worthy opportunity for fledgling athletes to showcase their talent. More than 2000 students participated from over 50 schools in and around the Bangalore metropolitan area. The competitions included cricket, football, basketball, swimming, skating and tennis.
