Physical Training

Physical education classes can contribute to students becoming responsible citizens who are aware of the importance of a healthy lifestyle and make educated decisions regarding their own health, safety and well-being.

Moreover, physical exercise is good for the overall development of the students. It increases their stamina; sharpens their overall cognitive abilities and motor skills; instils their desire to participate; and helps them to develop the whole personality of character.

The Physical education class is conducted once in every month in the college by a Physical Education Instructor and is attended by a good number of students.

Mens sana in corpore sano : a healthy mind in a healthy body.

We all know that health is wealth. With its intricate network of bones, muscles, and organs, a well-functioning human body is much like an orchestrated symphony. To keep this orchestra playing well, we need physical exercise. It is well-known that people who engage in physical exercise stay happier and live longer.

Exercise also sharpens our intellect. It keeps a balance between our body and mind. With the help of regular physical training, we will stay healthier, happier, and more alert. Good health is necessary for making a good academic career.

Triggers are one of the secrets to success when it comes to forming an exercise habit.

We have triggered a weekly fitness program where students practise various kind of Physical activity like Vinyasa Yoga, Free hand & Basic Aerobic exercises, Pilates, LIIT Fusion workouts, Meditation and Pranayama: to bring to their lives, more energy, better sleep, and a greater sense of well-being.

In adherence to the above objective, the College has an Anti-Sexual Harassment Cell comprising senior faculty members and headed by the Principal for handling complaints of sexual harassment. In 2014, close circuit cameras were installed at strategic points to keep vigil on occurrence of untoward incidents.

Since its establishment in 1938, the College has strived to translate the ideals of its mentors of empowering women to make them capable home builders, worthy citizens and conscientious women in their chosen fields, not merely through formal education. Accordingly, gender sensitivity is ingrained in the culture of this College. Specific programmes are organised for furtherance of this objective.

On 22nd March, 2014, the College in association with SAMAGAM, an NGO, organised a One-day workshop titled - "Atrocities on Women vis-a-vis role of Counselling", where a representative of the Kolkata Police and an eminent lawyer and a representative of CINI Asha addressed the students and took questions from them as well, to make them conscious of their rights and prerogatives as women. Thereafter, students of various departments presented skits and theme shows reflecting abuse of women in different social spaces namely the family, the workplace and other social areas.
