New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has issued a new circular to schools, directing that only those schools who have voluntarily come forward can participate in the yoga day celebrations on Sunday.
It has amended the earlier circular, making it mandatory for all schools to participate in yoga day.
The new circular, sent to all the schools on Saturday, states: “Schools that are functional might have voluntarily come forward to participate in the series of prescribed asanas in their school. Such schools may celebrate the International Yoga Day on June 21 in their school premises.”
However, the Department still maintains their mandate of sending the report of the function to the CBSE regional offices.
“The schools that celebrate the International Yoga Day may forward the report along with the photographs to the regional CBSE offices,” the circular adds.
Most private schools in Delhi had decided not to celebrate the day keeping in mind the ongoing vacations.
A few schools like Bal Bharti had decided to observe that day, that too with students who come for sports practice to the school in the morning. No one has been asked to come to the school especially for the celebrations.
