Extra Curricular Activities (ECAs)
We believe that participation in various Extra Curricular Activities (ECAs) contributes to the development of physical health, emotional maturity, social competence, moral values and life skills of the students. We also believe that a fair involvement in ECAs teaches students not only the value of cooperation but also the spirit of competition that is necessary to stand out in our highly competitive society. By playing in a team and working in a group, the students learn how to cope with others for the achievement of common goals. We believe that the spirit of fair play and the will to win in competition are valuable to the development of healthy and progressive mind.
At GPHS, a set of extra-curricular activities is an integral part of the school program. Various outdoor and indoor games are managed to develop a healthy mind in a healthy body of our every student. The outdoor ECAs conducted at GPHS are basketball, Football, Karate, Dance, Table Tennis, etc. Similarly, the indoor ECAs are Singing and Music, Chess, Drawing and Painting, etc. Besides, various ECAs like general and subject-wise quiz contest, spelling contest, oratory, debate, creative writing (poetry writing and reciting, story writing and narrating), etc are conducted periodically in order to develop students IQ, EQ and life skills with supporting their curricular activities. A separate ECA Department, headed by an ECA Coordinator, has been established that consists of a team of instructors for major indoor and outdoor ECAs. This department conducts all ECA programs throughout the year planned at the beginning of the Academic Session.
Basketball is a sport played on a rectangular court. It is played between two teams of five players in each. In GPHS, there are junior and senior basketball teams of both boys and girls.
