ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF CO-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES Co-curricular activities earlier known as Extracurricular Activities are the components of non

-academic curriculum helps to develop various facets of the personality development of the child and students. For all-round development of the child, there is a need of emotional, physical, spiritual and moral development that is complemented and supplemented by co-curricular activities. Co-curricular activities are defined as the activities that enable to supplement and complement the curricular activities. These are the very important part and parcel of education institutions to develop the students’ personality as well as to strengthen the classroom learning. These activities are organized after the school hours. The example of co-curricular activities are sports, musical activities, debate, art, camping, marching, club and society and uniforms unit.

The first advantages of extra-curricular are it they can develop good moral values and discipline among the students. Activities like participation in game debates, music, dramas and speech can help students enable to express themselves freely and helps to develop the spirit of healthy competition. These activities guide students how to organize and present an activity, how to develop skills, how to cooperate and co-ordinate in different situations-all these helps in leadership qualities. In addition it also will made students more discipline. For example, students must attend the various of practises, training and also meeting of club punctually, so if they are late they are usually reprimanded and soon they realize that obeying orders is important .Moreover, if the students take part in outdoor activities that was organized by any club like camping and marching, they have a lot of strict rules that must to obeyed especially for the students that elected as captain, leaders, secretaries and committee members. Secondly, co-curricular activities can also improve our health. When do more exercises we can burn some extra fat in our body which that can harmful our life. Furthermore, it regulates bloods to the brain. This process is very important because blood carry oxygen that needed by brain to work efficiently. Thus, it can reduce us from get sleepy easily because our brain gets oxygen. Besides that, co-curricular

they have a chance to interact with new people. when a student work in a group. PBSM and others.activities can increase stamina rating that needed by our body to do more work in activity such as jungle tracking and marathon. students will meet new members out of the school. Another reason why I think that co-curricular activities have a disadvantages because students confuse between studies and activities. Now. Thirdly. As a result. they will meet other competitor. clubs. Besides that. The cost is important element in all societies.. Automatically. Some society put the expensive fees on their members. clubs and uniform units. As we know. all of them need the money to do any activities and programs that suitable with their groups. When they are tiring with the co-curricular activities. Some institutions force their students to join the co-curricular activities which add more stress to them. Students tend to neglect their studies when they do co-curricular activities too much after school hour or . For example. They cannot also focus on it which can be very harmful to their future life. They will introduce themselves and know each others. the do not have more energy to study their academic lessons. The next disadvantage of co-curricular is high cost for each activities. For example. For social skills. they cannot follow their time table well and might cannot spend their time to study although for a half and hour. they have to give many ideas or opinions to do some projects so that the projects will have a good result and indirectly they can strengthen their relationship among them. he or she have to act as a leader to handle the group so that the group will controlled well. So the parents must struggle to spend more money to get it for their children especially for poor family. They have two main activities. For teamwork skills. curricular and co-curricular activities. if they take part in any competition. and uniform units. co-curricular activities can improve skills such as social skills. leading skills and teamwork skills. students have to work together as a cooperative team. the cost of many things is increase from day to day and i t’s become trouble to parents to solve it. For leading skills. The students need pay the fee to their societies. the students need also buy the uniform suits such as PENGAKAP. The disadvantage of the co-curricular activities is the students will facing with stress. This is very pernicious.

co-curricular activities have advantages and disadvantages.As a result. In conclusion. .holiday. every student must take opportunity to do something work will get benefit for theirselves. For example. students might neglect their studies and their progrees in school will decline. Finally. However students also cannot realize that co-curricular activity is only pheripheral subject . I believe that. person who are actively involved in cocurricular maybe effected their studies such as cannot focus their studies. So. only we know whatever we are making use of it wisely or we are abusing it. The time should be used for revising and doing homework instead of cocurricular activities.
