Noida: Genesis Global School, a premier Day-cum-Residential school in Noida strongly believes that physical activity through sports and games is an essential ingredient of the personality development of every scholar. Working on the philosophy of Beyond Academics, the school is hosting the XXXII All India IPSC Swimming Championship starting from 13th July to 15th July.
Around 22 schools and more than 300 athletes are participating in this competition, from where one separate team will be formed which will participate in School National Games (organized by School Games Federation of India (SGFI)).
Established in 1939, the Indian Public Schools Conference (IPSC) organizes competition and interaction among the member schools to give the students a ‘national exposure’ at an all-India inter-school level. The Sainik and Military Schools form part of this school conference and these 77 schools have an independent board of governors. Their aim is to facilitate all around development of students through emphasis on both academics and extra-curricular activities. The primary aim of a Public School as stated in the IPSC Articles of Association is “to prepare students of ability for positions of service and responsibility in all walks of national Life”.
Talking about the event, Mr. Pramod Sharma, Director, Genesis Global School said, “We have always laid stress on the balanced amalgamation of academics and sports. Children have vastly varying physical abilities and hence require different types of sports and games. Activities on the playfield develop the qualities of teamwork, leadership, dedication, discipline, self-confidence and self-esteem. Swimming, as a sport requires a lot of strength and determination, which is also a must for a student in today’s world. This event gives our scholars and students of other IPSC schools, an opportunity to showcase their talent and it also provides a platform to children to interact and prepare for excellence in Swimming.”
