Physical activities are as important as spiritual practices and academics.

A well-equipped gym is also available for students. Physical activities are scheduled in the morning and evening. Annual sports events allow students to compete with each other and exhibit their expertise.
A creative mind is a source of joy and engages an individual in curiosity, wonder, and appreciation for the offerings of the world. SRVM students are encouraged to enhance their creative strengths and express their talents through the arts. Activities like creative writing are published in internal magazines and similarly, poster-making allows budding artists to express their creativity. Various art forms of students are appreciated and encouraged considering that everything the mind conceives cannot be spoken but expressed through creativity.
Self-defense sports impart discipline, concentration, and self-control to an individual. An individual can brave adverse situations and protect themselves with confidence. Recently, Karate training was introduced in SRVM. The purpose of introducing martial arts is to encourage students to be fearless and righteous.
Giving back to society is the value of Swami Vivekananda and SRVM students promptly exhibit such qualities by participating in activities to uplift vulnerable communities. Food distribution is one of the regular activities extended by SRVM. General medicines are made available to the needy whenever required. Such activities are coordinated with utmost care and empathy.
