Khelo Shemstars is a unique initiative at Shemford Futuristic School, Pinjore as sports and games has always been of prime importance. It is believed that the children should be exposed to various disciplines in both scholastic and co-curricular activities at the grass root level to help their parents/teachers identify their interests and encourage them for the same.
The ‘Khelo Shemstars’ initiative of the school provides support and training to the young Shemstars to learn and practice the games of their choice. Studies reveal that involving children in sports activities helps to:
- Develop their gross and fine motor skills, strengthen their muscles and bones and increase their physical stamina and fitness.
- Improve their mental faculties, expanding their concentration and attention span and reasoning skills.
- Stimulate a child’s imagination, creativity and stirs up a lot of artistic and innovative ideas.
