Extra Curricular Activities

PHILOSOPHY BEHIND ALL EXTRA- CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES AT REVIVAL CITY COLLEGE:

Revival City College acknowledges that we aim at developing each child holistically; therefore we place great importance on activities which take place outside of the classroom. Since what occurs outside of the class is seen as an extension of what happens inside the class, the focus here will also be on guiding each child towards becoming the best version of themselves they can be. At Revival City College, as we mould and guide our children, we aim at cultivating in them qualities such as integrity, kindness, sensitivity to others, good teamwork and a desire to know Jesus on a personal level.

The early childhood years are notably critical to the development of future mental health and self -esteem for all individuals. One of the most important ways in which a child can develop their self-esteem is by feelings of competence and capability. RCC acknowledges that one of the best ways to develop this feeling of competence is by teaching a child new skills.

Each of the extra-curricular activities, whether sports or cultural, is seen as a means by which the right skills, attitudes and values may be instilled into our children, ultimately helping to give each child a greater sense of accomplishment thereby growing their self -esteem in a positive manner. These activities too are seen as opportunities for staff to present to the children the fact that Jesus desires to be part of all aspects of their lives, thereby encouraging them to build a positive, lasting relationship with Him.

In the light of this, we aim at creating opportunities for our children to participate in activities against other schools on a competitive level; as it is our belief that healthy competition is crucial to a balanced development of every child. We believe that it is within the parameters of this healthy competition that a child learns to cope constructively with accomplishments, defeat, perseverance, commitment and dedication – all life lessons every individual needs to learn
