Extra-curricular Activities


Introduction of computers and smart board has been a great asset for our staff and students. Education has been simplified yet enhanced through CD's and various other projects. 30 computers are installed in the computer lab to cater to the needs of the children. Computers set a great challenge to young minds and thus the benefits derived are abundant.

Every day an hour is given to each class for children to work independently on the computers, under the guidance of their teachers. Teachers also integrate teaching with the digital technology (smart board to enhance teaching-learning fun and effective.

Thus learning is more fun and satisfying as they work on their own. We thank an appreciated computer-donor for making this difference in our educational system and promoting a spirit of inquiry, self-directed learning, teamwork and other positive traits.

Yoga and Perceptual Exercises

Perceptual training is given in five visual perceptual abilities. Yoga therapy and training in perceptual abilities are carefully geared to a well-rounded program that takes into account the child's total development.

Different perceptual and yoga exercises are introduced every month, as formulated by the teachers at the beginning of each academic year. With continuous repetition, the children gain mastery over these exercises and perform well.

Movement is involved in every action of one's living; these exercises aid good movement. Proficiency in yoga and perceptual exercises also help students to develop skills that are necessary for success in schoolwork.


Students learn to sew small items like aprons, pouches, and handkerchiefs and they learn to do embroidery and needlework. These articles are available for exhibit and purchase. These skills help prepare children to be self-employed.


For the first time in Sophia Opportunity School karate classes were introduced for our Special Students, both boys and girls above 10 years of age. Karate has helped our students to earn a deeper insight into their mental capabilities, increased their self-confidence and improved their stamina and overall health.


Our children participate with Sophia High School in sports. This is a good opportunity for our children to compete. They try their best and win laurels for themselves and our school. Mass demonstrations, sprints, relays, march past and other novelty activities are an excellent challenge for our children. Our senior students have also participated in shuttle relay with the senior girls of Sophia High School and have won prizes, which encouraged the special children to be more self-confident and persistent.
