New Delhi:  Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has planned to introduce a streamlined and well-designed Health and Physical Education Programme to mainstream health and physical education in schools especially for students of class 9 to 10. This programme will be introduced from next session and will be compulsory for all affiliated schools of the board.

"CBSE has decided to mainstream Health and Physical Education for classes IX to XII with the aim of holistic development of the child, leading to a well-balanced individual in all walks of life," said a statement from the board.

"The aim of Mainstreaming Health and Physical Education is also to enable the students to attain an optimum state of health. Therefore, CBSE aims to provide a focussed curriculum for Health and Physical Education imbued with Life Skills in all its affiliated schools," the statement added.

Keeping this in view, CBSE has asked schools that while preparing time-table for session 2018-19, one period every day may be reserved for Health and Physical Education especially for class 9 to 12 from session 2018-19 onwards.

It also said the transactional strategies, detailed guidelines and methodology for administering HPE (Health and Physical Education) to students will be available on CBSE website shortly.
