HEALTH & HYGIENE At Vagdevi Vidyapeeth Insternational School, supreme importance is given to Health & Hygiene. The well-being of students is of great importance to us. The school organizes general health checkups at regular intervals to safeguard the health of all the students and the parents are informed immediately in case remedial help is required. At VVIS we aim to guide students and parents towards fitness, right nutrition and good health. Through our Health & Fitness Assessment, we help identify a child’s personal health-related fitness levels and provide individual feedback, a report is also sent to the parent & further counselling is provided. YOGA AND MEDITATION “We always tell our students to pay attention, but do we actually teach them how?” Yes, at VVIS Yoga and Meditation practices are used across all grade levels starting from Kindergarten, these practices not only enable students to build the muscles of focus but also help them release stress and anxiety and enhance resiliency. Research suggests that school-based yoga cultivates competencies in mind-body awareness, self-regulation and physical fitness among students and that’s why Yoga and Meditation serve as such a valuable component of our school curriculum. By embracing these practices students feel calm, happy and ready to learn. Students mindfulness in the classroom also helps teachers and the overall classroom climate is improved greatly. We encourage & enable students to make it a life-long practice.
