One of the great benefits of extramural activities is that they teach students about long-term commitments because they have a schedule they need to stick to so that they don’t let their team down. They have to learn about coping with time management so that their school work isn’t compromised.
Extramural activities are social activities that encourage kids to frequently interact with their peers. Extramural activities have greater academic success, greater character development, especially leadership skills, more positive social development, and greater interest in community involvement.

The Art of Excellence at Sudharsanam School is a special program to train students in both performing and visual arts. We have collaborated with renowned organizations and eminent personalities in these fields to smooth the path of learning for greater effect. These age-appropriate curricula promise all aspects of a child’s development and better learning outcomes.
At Sudharsanam Vidyaashram, the performing arts, such as theater, music, and dance, plays a significant role in helping children develop their creative skills. It’s all about self-expression, exploring alternative options, and embracing individuality. With improved self-confidence and self-belief, there is a natural pathway for children to go on to master many more skills that will equip them for life.
The Theater course at SV helps children learn
- Basic Stage Craft and Theory: Students will be initiated into the craft of theater, basic stage positioning and presence (prayer assembly), various forms of theater, and the history and evolution of the performing arts.
- Script Writing and Appreciation: The course will hone the writing skills of the students, encourage them to devise performance-based writing concepts, structure storylines, and kindle their writing spark by igniting their imagination.
- Public Speaking and Debate: Students are molded to present themselves in the right posture on stage, trained for apt voice modulation with clarity, and debate the right way to present their constructive views.
- Specific forms of theater: Students will be exposed to different forms of theater such as folk, proscenium, puppetry, mime, etc.
Sudharsanam Vidyaashram school believes that Playing stimulates the child’s brain to develop various motor skills like writing, jumping, walking, detailed handwork, planning, and making good decisions.
School playground provides better physical health to children, the more they are exposed to outdoor play activities. If interesting and more equipment is introduced in the school playground, students will be lured to use the equipment.
Outdoor physical activities improve muscle strength, alertness, motor skills, and strategic behaviour. Playgrounds provide children with an environment where they can engage in unstructured play. This enables them to use their imagination, which flows on to help the development of their emotional, social, and creative thinking skills, which are critical for performance in the classroom as well. Using their imagination and “free play”, children can build self-confidence—an essential life skill and one that may be harder to harness in a classroom environment. With “free play”, children may come across a physical obstacle that might frighten them at first, but by seeing other kids tackling these physical obstacles and the enjoyment on their faces, each child experiments with their own approach. This example highlights how important playgrounds are for self-confidence development. Classrooms can create a mental barrier for some children as they feel they may not be able to harness self-confidence in a more formal setting. Playgrounds offer the perfect middle-ground for children to experiment with their self-confidence and reduces any pressure they may feel in a classroom setting.
Dance is given the place of pride in our activity chart. Perpetuating our rich heritage in classical dance is an imperative duty. At the same time, students are also given opportunities to learn classical dance, and contemporary dance. Above all, learning dance gives one a deep sense of rhythm of movement and is also an excellent mode of exercise.
Students are permitted to identify and pursue their desired style of dancing and acting. Through this exposure, children are trained to think better, to act better and to express better.
