CBSE starts course in sports
197 views

Use it or lose it. The phrase is often used by teachers to motivate students to use one’s brain. However, seldom do teaching institutions realise that the same applies to our bodies as well. The lack of correct information and trained professionals has forced urban Indians to live a highly unhealthy lifestyle. The CBSE recently woke up to this reality and, in a paradigm shift from its current practice of promoting only academics, has introduced vocational subject for a career in sports and allied fields.

CBSE starts course in sports

“The course is called fitness and gym operation,” said Kanak Khanna, principal, Neerja Modi School, adding the school is eager to introduce the course. Many CBSE schools in the city are planning to introduce the new vocational subject to increase the employability of students who are willing to pursue a career in sports, but lack guidance or training.

“A lot of students are not interested in pursuing a career in academics and want to do something else. They often fail in their efforts as they get no guidance or training. Introducing this subject in class XI and thereafter in XII will provide a kind of launching pad for students who want to make a career in fitness and sports,” Khanna said.

Dispelling myths that this course is for the dim-witted, Khanna added that it would require extensive knowledge of the human anatomy. Spokesperson of SRN International school said, “An increasing number of children are participating in sports and this speaks volume about their interest in pursuing a career in sports. If they are provided proper guidance and are explained about health, physical fitness and sports through a proper course, this will increase their employability.”
