How MRIS is Making Learning Fun with Summer Workshops

There was a time when Extra Curricular activities were not considered of much use by most. A lion’s share of credibility and importance have been always given to the academic part of the learning process of a student. Thankfully, with the dynamic nature of human perspectives, expectations etc., the viewpoint in this regard has undergone a considerable change. Extra Curricular activities have been put into practice, streamlined and fortified very efficiently by esteemed educational institutions like Manav Rachna International School, Mohali a school that has been catering to the ever evolving needs and expectations of learners, thereby, enriching and enhancing their lives’ prospects.

In this blog post, we’ll explore how Manav Rachna International School, Mohali, undoubtedly the best in the city, has been contributing to the mission of making learning a fun process in classrooms.

Why Are Enrichment Activities or Workshops Important?
