Special Outdoor Activities for students of Kendriya Vidayalaya

In an attempt-to develop the personality of students, the government has decided to introduce special outdoor activities for pupils of the Kendriya Vidayalayas studying in Classes 9 to 12.

The Ministry of Human Resources and Development has decided to involve students in outdoor activities and introduce skill development courses for their complete personality development.

Students will be taken out on excursions. Workshops on current issues and visits to non-governmental organizations (NGOs) will also be part of the programme.

The project will give students an opportunity to visit research institutes and learn about the latest apparatus and methods used in research.

“Children of Classes 9 to 12 are at an age where they want to share what they have witnessed and experienced. If they are taken to research institutes or given an opportunity to be a part of a discussion on current affairs, the experience will certainly help them to form an opinion. They will also learn to express themselves fearlessly. That is the aim of the project,” said a senior official in the Ministry.

Excursions will be planned to check on their managerial skills. The plan is to involve children through the project.

The Ministry also wants to introduce students to short-term crash courses on skill development. Experts feel that the initiative will make students ready for the challenges of life. The govt is also planning to introduce the same project in Navodaya Vidyalayas, the sources added.
