It is rightly said that a healthy mind comes from a healthy body. Sports are a must amongst children to lead a sound and a healthy life.
Thus, apart from a very strong foundation in scholastic, NPS believes in intellectual, emotional, creative and physical development of the students. Experiencing success or being recognized for an achievement in a co-curricular activity can greatly boost up the self-esteem of a child. Therefore, we believe in providing ample opportunities and offering the right platform to each and every child so that they can become leaders in their respective fields of interest.
