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

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.
