An Introduction To Clubs
A Club is a non-formal mode of education which differs from the formal one in that it is an organized activity with educational purposes carried on outside the highly structured frame-work of formal educational systems and consists of an assortment of separate educational activities not bound by age restrictions, time schedules and sequences to keep in line with the levels of academic standards. The clubs represent freedom and expression where as the classroom represents conformity and repression. At New Kalpana Chawla College of Education we run various Clubs like Science and Mathematics Club, Social Science Club and Literature Club which cater for the interests of all the prospective teachers in the college and help to channelize their energies towards desirable goals.
