In its effort to make students from all over the country get familiar with the life and culture of the North East India, the CBSE board is taking a special initiative.
The New-Year greeting-cumcalendar sent to all the schools affiliated to it has put out the task of sensitising students about the heritage and culture of North Eastern India’s heritage and culture in bold.
Among other initiatives by the board this year CBSE has rolled out this initiative following the recommendations of the Bezbaruah Committee Report. CBSE has already given permission to schools to offer four new languages - Rai, Gurung, Tamang and Sherpa - in the cur riculum as an option from 2015-2016 academic session.
Apart from introducing the option of studying languages from the North-East region of the country CBSE is developing various course materials and project-based activities around the North-East theme.
