Shri Vithalrao Joshi Charities Trust’s English Medium School, Dervan, gives special emphasis on activities that facilitate the physical and mental development of the students. Mere bookish knowledge is not sufficient to tackle the real life problems. Students must get challenging experiences and must have courage to face the tough times. Keeping this in view, our school has added one more feather in its cap by housing a state-of-the-art Challenge Course in its premises. It is perhaps the first school in Konkan region to possess the Challenge Course which is a set of adventure-based learning activities designed to facilitate group and individual development. The various elements of Challenge Course encourage the individuals to try new things and stretch beyond their comfort zone.
Participation in Challenge Course has a significant positive effect on building confidence, developing problem solving skills, improving leadership skills, self-competence, risk taking, trust, team building, decision making, strengthening group relations, etc.
Students and teachers of our school are actively engaged with various elements in the Challenge Course by taking risks, overcoming their fears and limitations and gaining awareness of their personal potential in a safe and supportive environment.
Challenge Course is a fantastic addition to the school curriculum of the students.
