School Education, as a process, has been contributing to the holistic
development of children. Children are natural learners. They learn more when
they are stress-free and in a conducive learning environment. Learning under
pressure makes them anxious and lose interest in learning. Their day-to-day life
experiences, voices, questions etc. need to be given adequate space in the
classroom and new learning needs to be built upon that.

Concept of 10 Bagless Days

All students from classes I to X
will participate in 10-Bagless Days.
Children will be given periodic exposure
to indoor and outdoor activities inside
and outside the school which includes
quizzes, doodling, experiments, visits to
places/monuments of historical,
cultural and tourist importance,
meeting local artists and craftsmen and
visits to higher educational institutions in their Village/ Mandal/ District/ State as
decided by states and local communities.
This document covers all the important aspects and the activities of the
implementation of the 10 Bagless Days in a systematic way.
