Bihar to Introduce No-Bag Day

Bihar government will introduce a ‘no-bag day’ rule in schools, along with a mandatory games period at least once a week in order to lighten the load on students. The policy is brought to engage students in activities that can positively impact their learning.

“Weekly no-bag day will have practical classes. At least once a week, students will come to schools only with their lunch boxes. They do not need to carry books. The day will be devoted to practical and experiential learning,” said Education Department’s Additional Chief Secretary Dipak Kumar Singh. He added that the notification in this regard will be issued soon.

“School authorities must prepare curriculum for such activities. This step will certainly bring positive changes among students, which will also improve their learning ability. Encouraged by an impressive performance of our students in regional, national and international sporting events, we will introduce mandatory games period in schools,” Singh further added

The new initiative by the state government is in line with the National Education Policy 2022 and it would be implemented across private and government run schools.
