Benefits of extracurricular activities at school

The practice of some extracurricular activity has a very positive effect on students, especially if they combine those of a recreational nature, with others, focused on sports or on academics.

With the practice of this type of extracurricular activities, students develop a series of skills that not only reinforce their learning but also their personal knowledge. In this way, they develop as citizens of a world that is constantly changing. The advantages of these activities are many:

  1. Development of new skills.
  2. Complementing training
  3. Boosting academic and personal performance
  4. Development of social skills and time management
How to choose the best extracurricular activity?

Psychologists agree. It is essential to choose an activity jointly between family and student, knowing previously the characteristics and needs of each one of them. In this way, students will not feel that the activity is imposed on them but will treat it as a leisure period.

Planning is also important so that the student manages to enjoy these activities without feeling overwhelmed by the number of activities planned in one day.

Generating realistic expectations is essential. Controlling them will help not to create frustrations in the students for not feeling fulfilled. If we get involved in all these guidelines we will make each student feel that he/she is enjoying himself/herself while learning a new discipline.
