    CBSE has advocated its schools to partake in a student’s exchange programme along with Japan that is getting started in the month of October.  

    Japan - East Asia Network of Exchange for Students and Youth Programme will host 182 students who will specialize in explicitly recognized sports & cultural field (traditional heritage & arts). CBSE has urged it’s schools to start nominating students as the closing date is 23rd July.

    Class IX and Class XII students are allowed to take part. Schools will nominate the names as the ultimate decision will be taken by the central government. The trip is being structured under the auspices of MHRD (Ministry of human resources & development). The Japan trip will commence from 28th October and stretch till 16th December. It will be divided into 3 batches.

    The 1st batch will stretch from October 20th to October 28th. It will be entirely for soccer players. Only boys are permitted. The 2nd batch will begin on November 10 and last till November 18. It will be for students doing well in cultural field, with a spotlight on traditional heritage & arts. For this, both girls and boys may be chosen. The 3rd batch will start from December 10 and continue till December 16. It will be for those students who are excelling in lawn tennis, basketball and volleyball.

    There are some ground rules set for nomination. CBSE has made it obvious that one student can be nominated for one category not more than that. Students must be physically fit to embark on field trips & tours in Japan. They must be psychologically responsive & be creative enough to interrelate with other students & partake in debates etc.

    CBSE board’s letter states, "Being the representatives of the youth of India they are anticipated to be highly disciplined perpetuating the values of promptness & obedience to rules & regulations. It is further accentuated that they should desist from smoking & drinking".

    The letter states that "the intention of the Japan - East Asia Network of Exchange for Students and Youth Programme is to intensify mutual understanding among the youth & to lay foundation for future bond among the young people in Asian & Oceanian Countries together with mutual understanding & comradeship".
