Holistic education refers to the overall development of the students. It can include skills, behavioural training, physical fitness, and other such particulars which are required for the overall development of the students as an integral member of society. It must however be noted that holistic teaching methods do not ignore theoretical education. Holistic education incorporates all facets of human development and also includes the theory of subjects.
With this understanding, JIS realizes the importance of the holistic development of the students. Emphasis is laid on shaping students into smart individuals with strong commitment to their chosen goals. Individual sports and games like Swimming, Tennis are a part of physical education for all age groups, aimed at grooming the students on self-confidence, fitness and skill sets under the expert guidance of the professional trainers. The School has swimming pool, synthetic Tennis Courts for students eager to train in this elite sport. Quality training is provided in martial arts, athletics, and track and field events in the vast playground of the school.
In addition to these activities, meditation and yoga form the part of the daily activities as they exercise the body and relax the mind. The students of Vikash have participated in State and National level Yoga competitions and won laurels for the institution.
Today, sports is no longer a pastime, it is a serious professional option. In such a scenario, adequate emphasis on sports and other activities is very much in the scheme of things at Jhadeswar International School. Physical fitness is the primary objective of such activities that accentuate the need for a collective strategy.
The schools promoted by Jhadeswar group have a vast play field with separate facilities for various games and sports like cricket, football, volleyball and basketball that are based on co-ordination, teamwork and game plan. Students learn to play within the set rules and understand their role in the team and the importance of their respective positions. Adequate measures are taken to facilitate the participation of the gifted students in various sports and games at various levels of competitions. This constant grooming and encouragement has helped the students to win several prizes at District, State and National level competitions.
Healthy body begets healthy mind is JISs doctrine. As games and sports are the best means to achieve sound health, varieties of them are availed. We believe sports reveal and shape character in ways that are unique and complement the education in many ways. In fact, sports are an important part of the curriculum, an important measure of aptitude, attitude and a spirit of healthy competition. Accordingly, we have created excellent facilities for the pursuit of sports under qualified coaches.
