FIT INDIA SCHOOL REGISTRATION
Hon’ble Prime Minister has launched the FIT INDIA Movement on 29th August 2019 With a view to make physical ﬁtness a way of life. FIT INDIA Movement aims at behavioural changes – from sedentary lifestyle to physically active way of day-to—day living. FIT INDIA would be a success only when it becomes a people’s movement. We have to play the role of a catalyst.
You would agree that ‘How to Live’ ought to be the ﬁrst pillar of formal education. This involves teaching and practicing the art of taking care of one’s body and health every day. Therefore, schools have to be the ﬁrst formal institution after home where physical ﬁtness is taught and practiced.
In the above background, the Fit India Mission has prepared a system of FIT INDIA SCHOOL Certification with simple and easy parameters as below:
Fit India School
- Having one teacher trained in PE, and such teacher is physically ﬁt and active;
- Having a playground Where two or more outdoor games are played.
- Having one PE period each day for every section and physical activities (sports, dance, games, yogasan, PT) take place in the PE period.
- Having all students spending 60 minutes or more on physical activities daily.
FIT INDIA 3 STAR SCHOOL
The following additional parameters would apply for claiming a 3 Star certification:
- All teachers to be physically ﬁt and spending 60 minutes or more every day for physical activities.
- School has at least two trained teachers (including one PET), each well versed with any two sports.
- Sports facilities for 4 sports including the 2 outdoor sports.
- Every student learns and plays 2 sports – one of which could be a traditional/indigenous/local game.
FIT INDIA 5 STAR SCHOOL
The following additional parameters (over and above 3 Star certification) would apply for claiming the highest certification:
- School conducts monthly intra-school sports competitions, participates in inter-school sports competition and celebrates Annual Sports Day.
- All teachers are trained in PE.
- School has 2 or more sports coaches. These may be PE teachers.
- School follows structured PE curriculum prescribed by NCERT/ School Board.
- School conducts annual fitness assessment of all children.
- School opens its playground(s) after school hours for neighbouring communities, and the same is actively used. Reasonable fee can be levied for maintenance and security.
Procedure for Schools to get Fit India Star Certification
- Basic FIT INDIA SCHOOL would be self certiﬁed and registered online at www.ﬁtindia.gov.in by the School. Upon registration, a certiﬁcate would be issued online to the School, and on receipt of such certiﬁcate the School would be entitled to use Fit India Logo and Fit India Flag.
- For FIT INDIA 3 Star or 5 Star certification the school would have to ﬁle its claim online at www.ﬁtindia.gov.in. The Fit India Mission would get the claim veriﬁed and thereafter issue an online certiﬁcate and commendation letter. The same would be followed in print and dispatched through postal mail.
