This happens because art and sports are forms of expression that seek the common good, which comes about when we feel like we’re part of a community and identify with values that guide our behavior.
It is proven that those who do art or practice a sport are often more organized, consistent, and responsible; can manage negative emotions better; and have a bigger wish for personal and collective improvement. In other words, arts and sports help shape people who are more resilient and committed to reaching their goals. They are not only hobbies, rather, they play a decisive role in character and identity development.
At Eton, we want our students to be well-rounded individuals. For us, it is just as important to be learning inside a classroom as it is to be playing a sport or creating art, because we know that these experiences will be invaluable and will allow them to expand their vision of the world.
