New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has launched the Fit India School grading system in schools across the country.
The Fit India School rankings grade the school according to the merit in three categories, the first being the Fit India Schools then the Fit India School (3 star) and finally the Fit India School (5 star).
The level of ranking will be decided on the grounds of school’s initiative on prioritizing physical fitness among its students through fitness activities.
The announcement was made by the PM in the course of his popular radio programme, Mann Ki Baat, "In the Fit India Movement, schedules have been drawn for ranking schools in accordance with fitness. The schools that achieve this ranking will also be able to use the Fit India logo and flag," the PM said.
Explaining the ranking system, the Prime Minister said, "Schools can declare themselves as fit by visiting the Fit India portal. Fit India three star and Fit India five star ratings will also be given."
"I appeal that all schools should enroll in the Fit India ranking system and Fit India should become innate to our temperament. That it become a mass movement and bring awareness is what we must strive for," he added.
