    One of the teachers wants that the children of our college should take more interest in sports

    I am the Principal of a government college. Few of our students are very good at sports , the rest are just about average.One of our teachers is now insisting that it would be better that all the children of our college start taking more interest in sports.Will this be good for the children’s future? Please guide me in the right direction.

    Dear Aspirant,

    Sports are good for future,mental & physical health.But all the students can not have equal interest in sports.Some may be interested in sports,music,studies,politics etc.So there should not be any compulsion for all the students to take interest in sports only.Options should be asked by the students for a particular sports & if you have sufficient nos.of students for a team,then they should be asked to practice well apart from their studying.If you don't have sufficient nos.students for a team,then you can form a team with other college students & then they can practice well.Also there should be arrangement for inter college competition to promote their interest.

    Like wise you can arrange for other activity such as music etc.This way you can promote students for other activities apart from studies.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Hello Friend,

    Well, in ancient Greece people used to believe "Sound mind in sound body". Sports is a good for students of all ages. It helps you to understand the meaning of winning and losing. By playing sports our minds get refreshed and rejuvenated. Study and sports should be the branch of same tree. Your teacher is doing a praise worthy work and you should encourage him in every way possible. But you should remember there are some students in all colleges who don't like sports so their choice should be respected at any way possible. In this way you will be able to make a parity at college.

    Bye,

    Hi,

    Students should definitely be guided by the teachers and shown the right path, however, it's not advisable to force the juvenile students to take up any activity without any interest.

    No doubt that sports is a healthy activity and it help in the physical and mental growth of the students, but it cannot be everyone's interest. If your teachers feel that sports should be given a lot of importance in the student's life, then you will have create such an environment in the school, that the students get inspired and attracted to games and sports. If you start forcing them to take up sports then they would develop an aversion towards games.

    Convince the teacher with these logics and then bring the required changes in the school and the school's environment.

    Thanks.

    Yes sir it will be good if the students are well trained in the activities like sports if they and their parents have interest because their personnel interests must be taken into account before taking any decision because the students future will be depended on the decision you take.

    So, one day gather all the parents and students and make confirmation that both of them are interested in such type of activities and after taking permission proceed to further activities and also arrange some special classes for their academics.


    Like wise you can handle the situation.
