Fit India Week in Nov-Dec should be made mandatory across all schools: Sports Minister

Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju today visited Kendriya Vidyalaya at Andrews Ganj in New Delhi to participate in Fitness Week Celebrations at the school.

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has taken the initiative of observing Fitness Week in the second, third and fourth week of November, as part of the Fit India Movement.

The students put on a grand display of hatha yoga, dance fitness, physical training drills as well as various indigenous sports.

Mr Rijiju himself participated alongside the school children in traditional games like Gilli danda, pitthu and archery.

Speaking on the occasion, the Minister said that celebrating fitness week at this time of the year is a very good step. He said, it is being organized across all Kendriya Vidyalayas and he will encourage private schools to do the same.

He said, Fit India Week in the month of November and December should be made mandatory across all schools as fitness is a very important part of a student’s life.

Mr Rijiju said, Government is looking at integrating physical activity into the curriculum. He stated that there should be a technical evaluation and a progressive report card for fitness.

The objective of the Fitness Week is to bring about a behavioural change in school children from spending Passive Screen Time to Active Field Time – by moving them away from computer screens to open fields. 22000 CBSE schools across the country and three abroad are participating in the movement.

Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan Commissioner Santosh Kumar Mall, CBSE Chairman Anita Karwal and other dignitaries were also present on the occasion.
