Could anyone give me a hand & let me know what the differences between "Extra-curricular Activities" & "Co-curricular Activities" are? Actually, I know that "Extra-curricula Activities" refer to the activities outside of the curriculum e.g. kind of sports, music competitions, etc. "Co-curricular Activities" seems to be a "new" word which I can't find in lots of dictionaries but it appears to mean the same thing as "Extra-curricular Activities"...

Here's an example:

These practices help students develop skills in a safe environment that can lead to greater sense of belonging, leadership, and purpose.[/url]

More generally, 'co-curricular' seem to be activities that are closer adjuncts to a school curriculum. 'Extracurricular activities' in my day were activities like the chess club and Varsity football, which took place after school.
