"What can be learned on the ground cannot be learned in the classroom"
At Konark, we lay a strong emphasis on sports and physical development. Our sports curriculum is planned and designed for students to develop and enhance skills like strength, speed, endurance, agility, flexibility, control, balance etc. Sports today has also evolved as a form of entertainment and also offers promising careers.
We believe in mass participation, exposing our students to a number of sports events at inter-school, state, national and international level. Every student is encouraged to join at least one school sports team. The P.E. teachers we employ are young and energetic with a good amount of expertise in sports and provide coaching for sports like football, basketball, throwball etc.
We have weekly achievable goals for the different skills required for a particular sport and train students accordingly. Intersection matches are conducted every four months.

Use of school bus is optional, however, we encourage all to avail this facility to avoid traffic congestion and reduce the carbon footprint.
Importance of extracurricular activities in school life. There is always an argument that extracurricular activities are not so much important in a child's life. For development, extra activities are also most important in student's life. Students are pressurized during exams and they have performance pressure too of gaining good grades. In such conditions, there is a need for some extra activities. You cannot force a student to just read books and become intelligent. Extra activities are also important for the overall development of students. Sometimes when a school offers sports and extra activities parents do not allow their children to participate. Some students also feel that they do not need the activities, all they need is to concentrate on their books in many school teachers have to convince parents to permit their children to participate in activities. Parents feel that extra activities will distract their children from studies. Co-curricular activities are important just as academics. When a student is made to do academics and co-curricular activities then only a well-rounded development of the student is done. Students have lots of activities to choose from Cultural activities, sports activities, competitions, house on duties and lot more. Some students are even interested in more than one activities and they do participate in both keeping in mind about their academics.
At our school, the well being of learners is of utmost importance. We provide direct nursing services to learners and staff members to maximize health and wellness in the school community.

Following duties are performed by our qualified on-campus medical professionals:
The school nurse is constantly in contact with parents concerning certain aspects of the child's health for example ensuring that the child takes medication at a scheduled hour or observing the child following convalescence.
In addition to looking after students who are sent to the school infirmary, the school nurse encourages participation in various health programs set up by the local government, such as vaccinations and dental health programs. We also take a proactive approach in dealing with cyclical or specific health concerns that occur in some age groups and design campaigns for protection and prevention.

Each year, this unit also imparts training in health matters through first-aid courses to our teaching and non-teaching staff. Our school believes in giving comprehensive care to the learners. A trained nurse is on duty in the infirmary throughout the school hours.
