Board has already intimated all the schools to train girl students right from class I to class X before the beginning of academic year for a duration of one week.
Principal of Government Senior Secondary School (GMSSS), Sector 16, Anujit Kaur stated that, Board has come up with a wise decision by making self-defence training mandatory in schools for for girls, so that girls who have never participated in any sort of Physical education can have a chance to train themselves and impart self defence mechanisms.
As per new CBSE guidelines, schools are requested to participate in self defence classes for girls daily at school premises.
