For any society or Nation to progress, it’s important that their citizens are physically fit. The challenges of the modern day life has brought along with it the need to be more physically proactive and fit in order to face its challenges with optimum energy and positivity. Fit children are able to handle day-to-day physical and emotional challenges better. However, for a holistic and intrinsically healthy lifestyle, awareness and support for fitness movement is more essential than ever.
On 29 Aug 2019, the Honorable Prime Minister launched nation-wide “Fit India Movement” aimed to encourage people to inculcate physical activity and sports in their everyday lives and daily routine. So as to take this mission forward, CBSE has decided that each year SECOND and THIRD WEEK in November, a total of 06 working days, will be celebrated as “Fitness Week” in all its affiliated schools. This movement therefore endeavors to alter this behavior from ‘Passive Screen time’ to ‘Active Field time’ and the aim of the objective is to develop Sports Quotient among all the students to achieve a healthy lifestyle. Such movement will also instill in students the understanding for regular physical activity and higher levels of fitness enhancing in them self-esteem and confidence. It has also been decided to take-up “Ek Bharat – Shreshtha Bharat” on day six of this program. \
