The Fit India Movement is a movement to take the nation on a path of fitness and wellness. It provides a unique and exciting opportunity to work towards a healthier India. As part of the movement, individuals and organisations can undertake various efforts for their own health and well-being as well as for the health and well-being of fellow Indians.
Hon’ble Prime Minister of India has launched the Fit India Movement on 29 Aug 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.
‘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 daily. Schools have to be the first formal institution after home where physical fitness is taught and practiced.
Faith in God.’ ‘Concern for the welfare of others,’ and where education is concerned ‘Education of the Human Heart.’ These have formed the foundation upon which the Fransalian Mission has set its goals.Out of this came ‘knowledge, service, charity,’ which is not only the motto of this school but the firm goals it has set for itself.
For the students who enter the portals of St. Francis de Sales School, knowledge attained must develop a humane attitude in them. The skills acquired must not only spell success to them, but also lead them to offer their service for the betterment of the society. In this, they do charity to their fellow beings, leading to a communion with God.
The objective of the Education imparted must be such that it helps a child to know himself, to discover his talent, to accept his limitations and be creative in his own individual way.
This process must help a child to develop the ability to relate and reach out to others.
Keeping the spirit of the Indian Constitution in mind, the school aims to develop a secular attitude with a multicultural outlook and respect for all religions.
