CBSE schools to provide self defence training classes for girls

Posted By:

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has directed all the CBSE affiliated schools to spare everyday's 45 minutes to provide self defence training to girls.

The decision is taken at the backdrop of increasing incidents related to girl child molestation. It is very much mandatory that in such situations, rather than acting helpless, the girl can put some efforts for her protection.

According to the reports, the circular regarding the same was issued after some recent unfortunate incidents came in the limelight.

CBSE schools to conduct self defence classes

As per the orders of the CBSE, schools have been asked to impart one week training on self-defence to all the girl students of Classes 1 to 10 at the beginning of both the terms.

Principal of Government Senior Secondary School (GMSSS), Sector 16, Anujit Kaur is of the opinion that the self-defence training classes should be made mandatory for girls so that even those girls who are not part of physical education or any sports can come forward to actively participate in it.
