‘We are delighted to partner with ASISC Karnataka which has been doing outstanding work through meets like these to promote sports talent. Apart from events like these, schools must start ensuring sports is integrated into the curriculum seamlessly and there are opportunities for all the kids to play and learn the right sports skills versus only a talented few to participate. This will make sure that there will be a drastic improvement in the quantity and quality of talent pool that emerges from the schools’ says Parmider Gill, Chief Marketing Officer, EduSports.
Kishen Whabi, Program Director Fitkids Education and Training Pvt. Ltd. addressed the media, “I’m proud to say that LeapStart has been successfully launched in four prestigious schools in Bangalore till date – namely, St. Joseph’s Boys’ High School, Treamis World School, Delhi Public School and New Age School. At LeapStart we believe that a complete education combines strong academic training with age appropriate sports and fitness education. Our vision is that every child going through this program becomes more socially responsible, fitter, and confident and has all the basic skills required to excel in any sport they so chose.”
The Association of Schools for the Indian School Certificate (Karnataka) came into being on September 3, 1999. It was formed to meet the needs of ICSE schools in Karnataka, who did not have a common platform to represent their interests. This association has played a key role in addressing the many issues faced by ICSE/ ISC schools in the state, particularly on the legal front.
