Many factors have been identified as determinants, including unhealthy personal lifestyle, lack of health practices, societal environments non-conducive to better health, and either a lack of comprehensive health policies. We here are also devoting much effort in advancing health through improving children’s knowledge in health, enhancing skills in managing and promoting personal health, as well as changing sedentary and unhealthy life styles into active and healthy living.
The department of Health, Physical Education & Sports is decorated with three highly qualified faculties who also happen to be very good sportspersons of their time.

Intramural and extramural programs offer an excellent opportunity for everyone to develop the techniques of games under highly trained specialists and provide a chance for wholesome recreation and the cultivation of hobbies. Besides this, the programs play a decisive role for the formation of athletes. The interest of students to participate in intramurals and extramural programs is very high. The fundamental purpose of physical education is to promote, through selected physical activities, the establishment and maintenance of competencies, attitudes, ideas and conditions which enable an individual to establish a pattern of living that provides satisfactory self-expression and adjustment through individual accomplishment. Intramural and extramural program is also part and parcel of physical education.
The goal of this program is to provide competition in games, sports and other physical activities for the rank and file of the student’s body. The objectives of intramural and extramural activities are compatible with the overall objectives of physical education and also with those of education in general. (Bucher, 1967:580; 1971:206)
