Michael Jordan said “I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” Those people who never leave anything in the middle even though they are going through the roughest path of life to achieve a goal, we normally call them people with lot of sports man spirit. The term itself reveals the meaning of spirit one sports person keeps up.
If we sit and start counting the number of various games played by people, the numbers won’t be sufficient to complete the task. When there is en number of games it is our responsibility to chose some which benefit more and this will help us reduce mental stress and keep us physically fit. For children games are must as they engage themselves into studies more and this will leave their brain with a lot of stress. So there should be ample time provided to children for games and sports.
In schools games need to be a part of education and thankfully there many top schools in India who inculcates this goal. Particularly International schools in India give much more importance to these aspects in their syllabus as they concentrate more on the overall development of the kids. Normally boarding schools are considered to be the place where we get to see more inclination towards sports and games for children as children can spend enough time for this other than their study hours. We can see these days’ scores of boarding schools in India booming every day. Among them some stand ahead like Oakridge International Boarding School Vizag with their better quality education and overall development of children.
When we talk about Oakridge, we can see many international schools in Vizag but the standard which Oakridge keeps is praiseworthy. If it is the matter of games and sports, the school provided world class facilities to children for various sports like swimming, soccer, cricket, roller-skating, horse riding etc. It helps the students enjoy their free time, get physically healthy and more over be stress free. Ultimately this is what the purpose of any sports or games is.
The more you play the happier you will be is what should be the motto of every person because if we have peace of mind then only we can think positive and act accordingly.
