Value of Sports
Exercise, games and sports play a crucial role in one’s holistic development. Physically, an active lifestyle strengthens our bodies and boosts the immune system reinforcing the body’s natural defense against illnesses. Team sports also encourages connection and community, helps in strategic thinking and presents an alternative space for young people to focus their energies, which becomes a deterrent for engaging in negative vices such as smoking, alcoholism and drug addiction.
Given this, CHC considers sports as an important component of education, emphasizing its positive benefits to human development. Non-competitive games are also good opportunities for learning and upholding positive values and healthy practices.
