Club activities serve as the most enthralling aspect of school for Pinecrestorians. You can’t imagine the thrills when the bell goes for club. Each child in the school is mandated to belong to either an academic based club or an interest based club. All the clubs are packed with lifelong activities that will leave indelible impressions and impact in the lives of our students and pupils. We have the following clubs in the school:-
Arts and Craft
Literary and Debating
There is nothing like having the “Gift of the Gab”! Anyone who wants to become confident and a better speaker joins the Literary and Debating club. Children also get to learn more by discussing topics they may be too shy to discuss with their parents. Debating improves the students’ communicative skills. They learn how to marshal their thoughts, points and arguments elegantly, eloquently and logically. The younger club members are challenged by the keenness and dexterity in older club members’ performance. The older ones are determined to be on their mettles. By so doing the younger ones are spurred on to make their views significant while older ones are forced to think maturely.
Most students discover their legal prowess after a debate. The drama aspects as well as general literary appreciation enables them discover their talents in arts at a very tender age.
A number of skills can be acquired in Arts and Craft club. Most pupils and students acquire important vocational skills in the club like painting, drawing, bed making, beading, jewellery, soap making, perfume and air freshener skills. They design cards for events, mould things; they learn how to present things graphically as well as other important skills.
Potential journalists, writers, comedians, etc find both our Press Club and Reader’s Club alluring and insightful. They are trained to write weekly articles for the bill board, jokes, riddles and magazine articles. They are encouraged to explore the world of writing and express their thoughts with originality. Readers read a wide range of books which helps them in vocabulary development, spelling and mechanics of writing.
Parents who encourage their children to devote a great deal of their time in studying only school notes thinking that clubs are not really relevant in the future success of their children have come to realize that club activities offer more playful component of a well-rounded education that positively impact students’ success. A number of skills can be acquired from school clubs.
Since no one is discriminated upon, it gives everyone an opportunity to learn from each other.
