SPORTS AND ARTS PROGRAM (SAP)
“Winners never quit and quitters never win.” Vince Lombardi.
This is truly our conviction. Sport is an integral part of our education system. It helps children to achieve medical fitness as well as gains academic integrity. It brings in learnings of life and allows children to experience life beyond classrooms. It is yet another aspect of education that makes learning comprehensive. Through sports, we intent on teaching in our learners the importance of respecting opponents, the eminence of playing a fair game, and the value of hard work and determination. Considering its countless benefits, Vikas hones a vast campus that houses impressive Cricket pitch, Basketball court, Lawn Tennis court, and Athletic track to provide ample opportunities to children of all age groups to actively participate in games and experience the joy of sports.
Core values that Vikas stresses on:

To ensure equal and unbiased opportunity to all, students are randomly divided into four groups to access individual talent of the students and to inculcate a spirit of healthy competition in children to reach higher realms of achievements.

The first ripple has been created, the waves are yet to come!
Similar to physical exercise, practicing arts brings multiple benefits for children’s individual development and well-being. Learning to create something with their own ideas not only increases creativity but also aesthetical appreciation and the ability to see things in different ways or from different perspectives.
At Vikas, as a part of the curriculum we organize art, music and dance classes for children to foster creativity allowing them to grow emotionally. It enhances lateral thinking, complex analysis, and critical thinking skills. Art gives an outlet to express their emotions enhancing their inner ability to strengthen themselves cognitively.
Thus, the SAP program offers opportunities for recreation, relaxation, and a release from the academic day in a safe and comfortable environment. We nurture individual talents and help discover potential abilities of children which are nurtured and sustained.
The summer classes of entrepreneurship were really fun and interesting. It gave me the freedom to imagine and to create new ideas. The classes taught me teamwork to figure out an answer to a problem. We also had group projects which were really fun and enjoyable. We created objects that were unique Entrepreneurship is something that we should learn when in a business and in life. I think we should continue having entrepreneurship classes next year too!
I really enjoyed the online art classes conducted by my school, Vikas. I found that there was a personal connection between me and my teacher. The virtual art class helped me express my creativity and I was encouraged to draw and paint whatever I wanted to. I had the freedom to be independent and use the technology to my best advantage. It was a great experience and I would like to attend more such virtual art classes
Entrepreneurship is a really enjoyable class and I really liked it. I learned many new things from this class and enjoy it. I learned to explore to new things and that I can make things with minimum products. According to me entrepreneurship is a very valuable class and I think more people should try it. I would be happy if the classes start again.
Entrepreneurship class was very nice. We learned many new skills. There were a lot of activities. Some of them were group activities. We had to connect with different people from home to do group tasks. It was my first time learning about entrepreneurship. I liked activities like wacky invention, marshmallow challenge, etc . I learned about concepts like how to run business, profit and loss etc. The teacher was very encouraging. I wish there could be more classes like this.
