NEW DELHI MARCH 18: Central Board of School Education(CBSE) has decided to implement Health and Physical Education (HPE) program for class 1 to 8 from the session 2019-20 onwards. Last year, the board made health and physical education (HPE) compulsory for the students studying from Class IX-XII. The program is introduced in the continuation of the last year program.

Now the board advised to all affiliated schools of CBSE to prepare a timetable for session 2019-20 and directed to reserve one period a day for Health and Physical Education for the class I to VIII. This subject is introduced with the aim of holistic development of the children and it will also develop team spirit and create both mental and physical toughness of students.
