@FitIndiaOff Indirapuram Public School celebrated the 3rd edition of “Fit India School Week” Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav from 1st December to 8th December 2021 which is dedicated to fitness with the objective to instil the importance of workout not only in students but also amongst their families, teachers and entire school staff.

On Day 2, we conducted debates and lectures on the importance of Fitness and Nutrition. We also organised quizzes on indigenous games of India, essay writing on “My Fitness Mantra” and poster making on the theme of “Freedom from Sedentary Lifestyle” among students.
On Day 3, we organised indigenous sports of India, i.e., Kho-Kho, Tug of War, Lagori, etc., to make students aware of the old games of India.
On Day 4, we conducted a fitness session for teachers, parents and other staff members under SSR (School Social responsibility) to make our society physically as well as mentally healthy.
On Day 5, we started with Yoga and Pranayama followed by brain development games like Pyramid making, Ear Nose Touch Challenge, Chess etc., which help in increasing body awareness and creating mental clarity and calmness.
On day 6, students, teachers and all staff members took the pledge of fitness and promised to stay fit and also motivate others to perform physical activities on regular basis.
