Co-curricular and Extra-curricular Activities

Co-curricular and Extra-curricular Activities are an essential part of the Wellington Hall student experience. These activities, augment the classroom teaching of students both directly or indirectly.

Co-curricular activities supplement and complement the entire teaching-learning process and effectively impact student earning outcomes. It strengthens the classroom teaching and plays a vital role in shaping the life of a person, especially the students. Co-curricular activities help in the development of mind and personality.

Extra-curricular activities are those activities which are not part of the required curriculum; outside the regular course of study but under the supervision of the school. They help to accomplish the objectives of education through free expression, debates, co-operation, coordination and help develop your talents, interests, and passions…
