If students are expected to be happy, active, positive and productive, they have to be exposed to activities organised on a massive scale. Mega events such as the Mega Science Exhibition, Minithon, Art Carnival, Science fest and Open badminton tournaments serve this purpose.
Caught between rising child obesity on one hand and the inclination towards cell phone on the other among the school students, National Education Society and Young Global Citizens’ Educational Trust decided to conduct “Minithon” with the sole objective to bring the students out of the four walls of the classroom and to change their habits. Minithon is conducted since 2007, involving 1500+ students every year. The intent of the minithon is to involve students to enhance their fitness levels and lean towards a healthy lifestyle.
