The importance of sports and games in school is more than just the benefits of physical activity. It increases in self-esteem and mental alertness of the children. It is necessary to make sports and games necessary for every school age child.
Every student must be physically and emotionally healthy, so that they can stay focused and can concentrate on studies and they can perform well in their academics as well. Including Sports Activities in the curriculum can help them to achieve this.

So, sports should be made a compulsory part of the school’s curriculum and an integral part of a child’s development.
