As per the report issued by CBSE, it is time to bid adieu to the fun trips to domestic & international venues and start thinking of venues related to educational places as per the curriculum. In addition, CBSE has asked principals and teachers of schools to follow certain board guidelines in order to ensure safety of students while systematizing study tours.
The principals and teachers will also have to make sure that a written communication is made to district magistrate or other authorities concerned about tours taken to public places like power plants, dam sites, and beaches. As per the circular, associated teachers will have to keep abreast of weather updates as well. In a circular, the board stated: "The accompanying teachers must take notice of the weather forecasts and news broadcasts of the place of visit."
Kavita Wadhwa, the principal of Hallmark Public School in Panchkula, stated, "CBSE is not cutting down on trips but trying to ask schools to make them educational. I believe every trip is educational provided the school knows what they wish to teach children. International trips too are educational. When abroad, they learn about different cultures, different places, their climate, their history which is also there in their books”.
