In this day and age, it is imperative that a student grows up holistically. Gone are the days when keeping yourself immersed in books was the only recommended way of doing well in life. The times are changing, What do we mean? Well, simply put there are two hemispheres in the brain. The right and the left hemisphere. One is known to control the logical and analytical part of your mind while the other is known to control the creative functioning of the body and the mind.
For true development of the mind, soul, and the body, it is essential that the student’s growth is wholesome and holistic. This means an all-round development of the mind in academics, art, and sports. To spread this message across the youth of our nation the CBSE has stepped in with their own programme.
Central Board of Secondary Education or the CBSE has just set the pace for the promotion of sports based talent based on students bringing home national and international medals.
This special drive by the CBSE to promote talents in sports has further led to a departure from the set practice of following the static exam schedule this year. Six students who represented India at various international events when other class tenth and twelfth were busy writing there scheduled CBSE board exams. Sports Authority Of India, Ministry Of Youth Affairs and Sports confirmed the same to CBSE. CBSE then went ahead and gave special permission to three class twelfth and four class tenth students for appearing in the board exams on later prescribed dates.
After closing and delivering on these decisions, the CBSE also launched new staunch guidelines and manuals for mainstreaming ‘Health and Physical Education’ available at www.cbse.nic.in. All school affiliated to the CBSE will strictly have to dedicate one period per day for students of classes 9th, 10th,11th, and 12th under the ‘Health and Physical Education Programme’. The master blaster of cricket, Mr Sachin Tendulkar has also written to the chairperson of the CBSE to appreciate it’s initiative to accommodate more space for sports activities. In his own words “ I have been advocating integration of sports in school curriculums to promote health and fitness from a young age” says the star cricketer Sachin Tendulkar in his letter to the Chairperson of the CBSE.
Our book ‘Health and Physical Education’ for classes 11th and 12th has been prepared according to the latest curriculum and guidelines of the CBSE. These books elaborate on the mental, physical and physiological approach to physical education.
