Ahlcon Public School puts a lot of stress on co-curricular activities. The school has a number of activity groups such as the eco club, the disaster club and the heritage club.
The students often form their own societies and organise events or work to improve the school.
“There are 120 activities for 140 days of school,” said R.K. Sharma, the principal.
“They must get hands on experience, build confidence to prepare for life ahead.” For Siddhant Gupta of Class 12, the best thing about the school is the space he and his friends get to interact with other students. “We have so many activities. They help us interact with each other.”
“We had a library club that the students themselves had formed,” said Devanshu Mishra, a student of Class 11 and someone who likes literary activities. Though with some of the students having passed out, the club is no longer active, but the changes it brought about in the library are still visible.
The commerce club, which is again an all-students’ initiative, organises many activities. “We students do everything. We organise many events, some of which are even inter-school affairs,” said Arjit Sharma, the school’s vice-captain. “Unless you get down to organising everything yourself, you don’t know how much effort it takes to manage everything,” he said.
