It is a firm conviction of IIS that physical activity through sports and games is an essential ingredient for the personality development of every student. We believe that academics and sports are compatible and complimentary in realizing the child’s full potential.
Activity on Playfield develops the qualities of team work, leadership, dedication, discipline, self- confidence and self – esteem. These qualities get ingrained in the psyche and enable each student to overcome the trials and tribulations of life. Sports equip students to face challenges of an increasingly competitive world.
Sports – In-door
Sometimes it's too dark, sometimes it's too rainy, sometimes you just feel like playing inside. Whatever the case, we have hundreds of ideas for indoor games to play with kids from toddler to tween. Let the games begin.
The Sports facilities to be offered in our school:
The School having large playgrounds which is used by the students to play football, cricket and also for athletics. Physical fitness is one of the most important elements of leading a healthy life. Physical education promotes the importance of inclusion of a regular fitness activity in the routine.
This helps the students to maintain their fitness, develop their muscular strength, increase their stamina and thus stretch their physical abilities to an optimum level.
In addition to our planned schedule of sports we also offer a variety of other lessons throughout the year; recently these have included hockey, tennis and volley ball. We fully appreciate and endorse the guidelines provided by the Department for Health and the Department for Education in relation to encourage children to participate fully in sport to help them develop healthy lifestyles. We feel that our comprehensive programme of sports offers something that will appeal to every child instilling in them the desire to continue choosing healthy lifestyles options to enhance their future.
At IIS the sports curriculum is uniquely designed with the understanding that every student is physically endowed differently and thus the array of sporting activities have to be diverse enough to suit various aptitudes.
The sports policy ensures a smooth transition from childhood play to competitive sports. In the initial years children will be encouraged to joyously participate in the ‘mother sports’ of running, and yoga. Students explore and display their special sport talent as they grow and we ensure that their curriculum is upgraded accordingly. Special training regimes and individually developed keeping in view the abilities, talent and potential of every child through counseling sessions.
