SSA & Magic Bus India Foundation

    

Brief on Programme: The Government of Mizoram’s Sarva Siksha Abhiyaan (SSA) and Magic Bus India Foundation (MB) entered into an agreement in November 2013 to implement Magic Bus’ Physical Education (PE) and Sports for Development (S4D) program in classes V to VIII as pilot in 50 schools of Aizawl district. The program for the children in Aizawl district was carefully designed based on the learning from a situational assessment done through several on-site scoping visits, interactions with various stakeholders (headmasters, teachers, children, etc.), mapping of schools and the findings of the baseline survey, while keeping in mind NCERT’s Physical Education Guidelines and the need to develop children’s physical and socio emotional health for their overall development as stated by the National Curricular Framework. The two main components were

i. Physical Education (PE): Under this component, children are evaluated on four parameters namely, Speed, Strength, Agility and Flexibility before the start of the program, as well as at the end of the year to assess children’s improvement within the program. 
ii. Sports for Development (S4D):Under this component, children are imparted important messages related to various domains of development through sport and activities. The domains covered in this component include Health, Gender and Socio-Emotional Learning.

 Impact Statements:
 • 95% children are now aware of the provisions under the Right to Education Act, as compared to 32% at baseline 
• 96% of children demonstrate a high level of participation in the classroom
