PE, Yoga & Sports

Physical Education originally meant “education through the body” Yoga is one of the Indian philosophical systems that stimulate the body, mind, and thoughts. It helps improve general wellness by relieving stress and improving mental and emotional health. Sports on the other hand inculcate in children the values that allow them to cope with the highs and lows of life. More importantly, it helps children to develop psycho-motor skills, enhancing their concentration level which is very important in their overall development. Swiss Cottage School provides enough space for these activities at its sprawling campus. The school provides facilities for both indoor and outdoor games such as carom, ludo, chess, badminton, table tennis, cricket, basketball, etc. There is a special facility of Splash Pool for the junior wing.
