Kendriya Vidyalayas across the country have been asked to follow the NCERT syllabus on yoga education and create awareness on a "priority" basis about the benefits of yoga among the students.
Earlier this year, in June, HRD Minister Smriti Irani had released course material and syllabus for yoga designed by NCERT for classes 6 to 9 and had also introduced yoga as a training module in teacher education programmes.
"Syllabus prescribed by NCERT should be followed by all the schools" and "creating awareness among the students about the benefits of Yoga should be given priority," the annual KV deputy commissioners conference held in July this year has resolved.
During the meeting, it was also decided that language labs should be set up in schools utilising existing infrastructure to hone language skills of students and especially the primary school teachers. Short duration training programmes exclusively for enhancing communication of Principals would also be organised, said the minutes of the meeting.
In order to initiate better performance, the meeting decided that every region should fix an achievable target for the Board result for the session 2015-16.
The meeting decided that all the Regions should prepare a workable strategy for their schools for achieving the set target and need based training would be organised by the regions for improving the result in subjects such as Mathematics, Economics, Accountancy, Business studies.
