Extra Curricular Activities

The college seeks to help every individual student to develop his/her abilities, talents and personality to the fullest possible extent. As a step in this direction, the school enjoins all students to take part actively in its extra-curricular programme. There are more than 20 different clubs in the school. A student is expected to have membership in one of the club groups. Club members meet every week for about one hour (or more).

As much as possible, students are given an opportunity to choose their own clubs. Selection of clubs begins in September. Students are allowed to visit different clubs and then sign-up for the club they are interested in. Students are made to complete a selection pro forma on which they indicate their preferences.

As part of its overall curriculum, JMC organizes ‘Club Fair’ within the first one week of resumption of every new academic session. The purpose of this fair is to bring to the notice of our first year students, the many clubs available on the campus. The clubs which are all sponsored and promoted by the school management are structured and designed to make JMC a home away from home, and to ease the stress of academic pressure that seems to threaten especially new students. Thus getting involved in extracurricular activities can provide the much needed break from class and the rigorous academic exercises. Clubs afford students the opportunity to discover their talents and skills and follow them with passion. The clubs are grouped under academic and non-academic.
