It is a firm conviction of Hira International that physical activity through sports and games is an essential ingredient for the personality development of every student. We believe that academics and sports are compatible and complimentary in realizing the child’s full potential.
Winston Churchill is famously known to have said, “The battle of Waterloo was won on the playfields of Eaton and Harrow!” Activity on Playfield develops the qualities of team work, leadership, dedication, discipline, self- confidence and self – esteem. These qualities get ingrained in the psyche and enable each student to overcome the trials and tribulations of life. Sports equip students to face challenges of an increasingly competitive world.
At HIS the sports curriculum is uniquely designed with the understanding that every student is physically endowed differently and thus the array of sporting activities have to be diverse enough to suit various aptitudes. The sports policy ensures a smooth transition from childhood play to competitive sports. In the initial years children will be encouraged to joyously participate in the ‘mother sports’ of running, skating and yoga. Students explore and display their special sport talent as they grow and we ensure that their curriculum is upgraded accordingly. Special training regimes and individually developed keeping in view the abilities, talent and potential of every child through counseling sessions.
