Badminton Ace PV Sindhu Launches Suchitra FitKid, India’s 1st Online Physical Educational Curriculum

The curriculum is designed by PV Sindhu’s personal trainer, Mr Srikanth Varma

Published

on

Hyderabad, July 23rd, 2020: Suchitra Academy, launched a scientifically designed comprehensive and first of its kind online Physical Education curriculum in India, the SUCHITRA FITKID, at the Suchitra Academy. The unique online curriculum was formally unveiled by the World Badminton Champion Ms PV Sindhu. Mr Praveen Raju, Chief Mentor; Ms Deepa Kapoor, Principal and Ms Trisha Chakraborty, Vice-Principal, Suchitra Academy; PV Sindhu's personal trainer and the author of the Suchitra FitKid, Mr Srikanth Varma, along with the physical instructors of the school were present on the occasion. Later Ms Sindhu participated in a live session of fitness.

The curriculum is designed by Ms Sindhu’s personal trainer Mr Srikanth Varma

The online fitness program Suchitra FitKid is designed to address the fitness needs of students from Grade I to XII. The program is integrated into the school curriculum and brings back the fun and fitness elements missing otherwise in the current monotonous online education. The initiative is unique as it blends physical fitness with a built-in assessment of specific goals planned at each level. Above all, it is compliant with CBSE norms, making it a result-oriented and success measured programme. 

Physical fitness has gained paramount importance especially in these unprecedented times of movement restrictions. Even though online education is effectively addressing the academic needs of students, the daily dose of physical activity, which is an indispensable part of the growing age, has been grossly neglected. Suchitra FitKid initiative hopes to bridge and address this concern.

Interestingly, it is framed to suit the needs of different growing age groups. The regimen incorporates key workouts to finetune mind locomotor skills and includes strength training, balance, flexibility and endurance. The exercise regime is combined with yoga, specific to each age group. The program incorporates four classes for students from Grade IV onwards and two classes for Grades I to III, of physical education every week. Mr Venkateshwar Rao, Sports Director, Suchitra Academy, with a rich experience of over twenty-five years in the domain, along with his team of five instructors will conduct the program at different levels.

The plan is to share the curriculum with schools in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh so that the far-reaching effects of a physical education curriculum serving the mind, body and spirit reaches beyond Suchitra Academy benefitting countless children in the two states.

Dr Swaroop Sampat Rawal among Top 10 finalists for Global Teacher Prize 2019

The finalists for the Varkey Foundation were announced at globalteacherprize.org. India’s Dr. Swaroop Sampat Rawal amongst the Top 10 at the prestigious stage.

Published

on

Now in its fourth year, the US$1 million award is the largest prize of its kind. The Global Teacher Prize serves to underline the importance of educators and the fact that, throughout the world, their efforts deserve to be recognised and celebrated. It seeks to acknowledge the impact of the very best teachers – not only on their students but on the communities around them.

As glorious and important this platform is for educators, it is a proud moment for India as Dr. Swaroop Sampat Rawal is amongst the Top 10 finalists for The Global Teacher Prize.

An inspiring educator, Swaroop never originally intended to become a teacher, but after becoming a mother and then returning to study at the age of 37, she realised that she had something unique to offer. She saw first-hand how some methods of teaching can create stress in children, which then makes its way into the family. Swaroop, therefore, went into teaching to accomplish two goals: to help make children more resilient through life skills education and to bring new methods to teaching that would help students and their teachers reflect, imagine and build their sense of personal worth and agency.

To make this possible, she also pursued a Ph.D., researching life skills enhancement for mental wellbeing, teacher education, and the arts as a tool for education.

Realising that she could reach more children by not being tied to one specific school, Swaroop has pursued an eclectic teaching practice that has allowed her to reach a diverse range of children – including children on the streets, in rural communities, in labour, economically and socially disadvantaged children, and elite school children. Each group has their individual challenges. In order to reach out to them, Swaroop uses drama in education – an active, learner-centred method which includes group discussion, brainstorming, debate, games, song, and drawing. At the forefront of this discussion is understanding the world and one’s own capabilities. This approach has had important concrete effects on the lives of those she has taught. To take two examples: after teaching in Bhadbhediya, peer-mentors subsequently discussed the issue of child marriage with the village committee and put measures in place preventing it. And in Sodvadra, pupils have helped put a stop to child labour in the diamond polishing industry and facilitated children’s return to school.

Swaroop has also contributed to the understanding of teaching in modern India. She has become a teacher-trainer, presenting papers at more than 40 international and national conferences, and having articles published in international peer-review journals. She has given large numbers of workshops with audiences ranging from students and teachers to social workers and practitioners of psychiatry. In 2014 she carried out teacher training sessions for the government through a satellite link – an extremely successful program which brought about immense changes in teacher attitude in rural Gujarat. Swaroop also serves as the Non-Government Special Member on the Central Advisory Board of Education. In 2016, she was awarded Most Committed Person of the Year in Inclusive Education at the 4th International Early Childhood Conference of The Early Childhood Association.

Swaroop Sampat believes that if awarded the Global Teacher Prize, she would form a think tank to create and promote special curricula for pre-vocational education (PVE) in primary schools. This step will aim to ensure that children are informed about a variety of possible occupations wherever they live in India. This think tank would share findings internationally for use in other countries, where they are directly related to the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.

Sampat vouches, “Teaching is my refusal to remain silent. Education is my way to make better the lives of the children. I perfect my practice so I can improve their schooling. I imagine new ways of teaching so I can teach them well to enable them to learn well….innovative and improved technique …effective curriculums …valuable research for a safer, beautiful world…It is about the children, always about the children.”

ScooNews congratulates the stellar educator for making the entire nation proud and sends all good wishes her way to win the prestigious Global Teacher Prize.
