Should sports be made compulsory till class XII?


One can, in fact, utilize school vacations for sports training. And if sports is made compulsory at school, proper training will help to channel a students energy in the right directions. That sports is an excellent medium of instruction can be gauged from the fact that little children are taught lessons through games. This is because it helps the child to pick up new concepts faster.
