Health and physical education is a very important part of the Ontario curriculum. Regular physical activity is not only essential for healthy growth and development — it can actually boost students’ academic achievement. Younger students can burn off some of their energy, increasing their ability to settle in and focus on their academic work. In adolescents, regular physical activity not only helps to maintain a healthy body weight, but has also been shown to lower levels of anxiety and depression.
Starfish Karachi has taken an initiative to start Starfish Martial Arts for the school students. Nisar Alam is my own teacher who had trained me in 1992-96.
55 students in first badge enrolled themselves. We hope more boys and girls comes in.
