Kongunadu Matric Hr. Sec. School defines Life Skills as “the abilities for adaptive and positive behaviour that enable individuals to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life.” Life Skills are psychosocial competencies and interpersonal skills that help people make informed decisions, solve problems, think critically and creatively, communicate effectively, build healthy relationships, empathise with others, and cope with managing their lives in a healthy and productive manner. 

      Life Skills are considered especially important for rural children and adolescents who are being deprived of an all – round education available to their counterparts that emphasizes the holistic development of individuals. These set of skills have been shown to be particularly essential for children at risk or in especially difficult circumstances as it equips them to deal with various challenges they face. It is a proven fact that our students are found capable and leaders in the higher educational institutions and industries and other areas of administration.
