Swimming: Swimming is given a lot of importance at GDGWS. There are provisions made for all age groups. This Sport is indeed a very popular sporting activity. There is a separate pool for the juniors, some of who take their first dip at GDGWS. The school also boasts of a half-Olympic sized indoor swimming pool for the senior swimmers. The water is chlorine free and treated with ozone technology. The expert coaches are recruited keeping in mind they will be required to tackle beginners, regular swimmers as well as train students to take part in various competitions. GDGWS students have won many laurels in Swimming Championships at the inter-school as well as national levels.
Yoga: Rather than depending upon external aids, every kid should be able to handle various stresses as they appear during their growth. Every child in school is taught that “Prevention is better than Cure”. Yet, how many know how to implement this in practice. And for those that do, how many have the will and wherewithal to do so. Familiarizing the child with Yoga tools can help show them the path of “Preventive medicine.”
Yoga helps bring about subtle attitudinal changes in life. If taught earlier on in life, they are easier implemented and can bring about a healthy change in society. Being able to harness ambition in a positive manner rather than through negativity will not only help the student excel but also make him / her a healthier and happier person. Is that not TOP priority what each parent seeks for his child?
Gym: GDGWS can boast of having one of the best equipped gyms in the Schools community. It has the latest in machines with the best of trainers to coach students of all age groups.
Aerobics: Exercise regimens that begin at a young age are more effective in promoting longevity and health than those begun later in life. As children become older, there is a strong tendency for them to participate less in physical activity. The drop in such participation between the ages of twelve and eighteen is dramatic. The purpose of Aerobics at GDGWS is to create and maintain interest in physical activity.
Table Tennis: All time favorite sports in school. Ever since the school started more then 200 students have learnt this game as students were allowed to drop in play room during free time.
– Intra-Mural: Recently played Inter-house TT championship. School’s Table Tennis seeding is in progress.
