Co-Curricular activities are an integral part of our instructional programme. Every activity in school life plays a significant role in the development of students. At AWS, co-curricular activities are an integral part of the curriculum and are designed and balanced with the academic curriculum so that every student gets a chance to participate and explore their innate potential and skills. The events are arranged to spread through the academic year and the difficulty level is increased depending on the mental and physical ability of the students.
