The University has a big playground for outdoor games where in Basketball, volleyball, badminton & other games can be played by the students.
Playing is not just about letting off steam. It is a vital part of youth that helps children develop physical strength, coordination and balance. It can also provide opportunities for children to learn and develop:
Social Skills - when they play with other children they learn to communicate, share, collaborate and empathise with others.
Imagination and creativity - outside play is often open-ended and children need to be creative about what and how games are played.
Thinking and problem solving skills - as children assess risks and tackle new challenges they learn about having a go, persistence and perseverance and the success those attributes can bring.
Sense of self - as they master new skills and play with other children they improve their competence and confidence in their own physical and social abilities.
Sense of connection - to place, to peers and to their local community and environment.
Self care skills - managing physical and social challenges helps children to learn about keeping themselves safe.
