To increase the enthusiasm of the students, this school of Madurai took a step towards traditional sports

To increase the enthusiasm of the students, this school of Madurai took a step towards traditional sports

Madurai , a unique attempt to get out of addiction to online games . Due to Corona, online classes have been going on for a long time and it has also brought those children closer to mobile and net, who tried to keep away from mobile. As a result, many children also got caught in the addiction of online games. Model Government Girls Higher Secondary School, located in Ottakadai, Madurai district, has introduced traditional games for its students in order to remove the same students from the addiction of online games and to connect them with the traditional game.

During the lockdown, the school headmistress S. Shashidhara prepared a traditional playground in the school premises by spending out of her own pocket. The way social media has progressed in the last few years, children are also moving ahead. Online classes have brought children closer to mobiles and nets, so that they can continue with their studies. But during the same period students also became addicted to online games. A traditional playground has been prepared in the school with the aim of taking the students out of the addiction of online games. This is happening for the first time in a government school.

During the conversation, the headmistress said that in the last few years, due to mobile, children have gone far away from the traditional game. This step has been taken with the aim of connecting them with traditional sports. This process will also help in inculcating values ​​of the students, improving their concentration and skills. The idea came to me when the renovation work was going on in the schools during the lockdown. The school now has special areas for playing Pallanguzhi, Chess, Thatangal (Sotangal), Neerkodu and Snake-ladder.

He told that due to Corona, the online classes going on for the last one and a half years have affected a lot of students. But now that students are joining traditional sports, there is a marked improvement in them. Every day students in grades IX to XII have library time or a music class and up to 20 children are allowed to play these traditional games during the same time.

They say that
this move of the school is very commendable and I really like to play chess in the open, in the shade of trees, among the birds and with the squirrels in the background. Playing Pallanguzhi is helping to improve our mathematical skills and for us this game is a stress reliever.
-R. Tenmozhi, Class X student

Hand and eye coordination is felt to improve with this type of game and concentration increases. Snakes and ladders indirectly teach us a very valuable lesson. We always have the fear of falling down when we are at a height in it. But with our hard work and efforts, we can go up again. It's not just a game, it's teaching us skills.
