The latest announcement by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), stating that students studying from Class I to VIII will have one compulsory period for health and physical education daily, has been well received, especially by parents.
According to the CBSE, the classes for physical education will start from the next academic year i.e., April 2019. The announcement is in continuation of the programme introduced last year where health and physical education (HPE) was made compulsory for students studying from Class IX-XII.
The main reason for introducing this programme is to ensure holistic development of children, since sports, physical games and outdoor activity help make them sharper and more creative, it also develops team spirit and creates both mental and physical toughness among students.
