SUMMARY, FINDINGS, CONCLUSIONS AND

RECOMMENDATIONS

Summary

Co-curricular activities help to improve not only the physical strength of the children but

also enhance the cognitive skills as well. Students involved in co-curricular activities

benefit from interaction with positive adults who are viewed as role models. Spending extra

hours each day after school with coaches and sponsors helps students develop positive

traits as opposed to poor habits formed by students who engage in less desirable behaviour

in their free time after school. Students participating in activities experience success and

are encouraged to stay in school. Moreover, schools forge a connection with the parents of

participants. Involved students do not want to disappoint their coaches and sponsors with

poor grades or behaviour. Additionally, marginal students view activities as a means to

connect positively to their school. The forming of solid bonds with adults within the

framework of co-curricular activities is beneficial to the participants' development.

performance at elementary level. The basic objectives of the study were: 1) to find out the
