New Delhi: In a bid to make students more sensitive towards nature, society and the country, preparations are underway to implement the happiness curriculum in primary schools in Uttar Pradesh. This pilot project has been undertaken on the lines of Chhattisgarh and Delhi, officials said.
Saurabh Malviya, the state in-charge (happiness curriculum), who was here to participate in a six-day workshop at State Institute of Educational Management and Training, told news agency PTI that the course is being developed keeping in mind the geographical and cultural conditions of Uttar Pradesh.
He said that the happiness curriculum will be introduced to the students from Classes 1 to 8. It will enable them to connect with themselves, family, society, nature and the country and will also help them understand interrelationships, Malviya said, adding that the children will be taught meditation as well.
As part of the pilot project, 150 schools in 15 districts across Uttar Pradesh have been asked to work on this curriculum. Five books will be prepared for the children in Classes 1 to 5. In this sequence, the subject matter of the curriculum is being prepared by organizing a workshop of 32 teachers, Malviya added.
Shravan Shukla, who took part in the workshop as a trainer, said that preparations are underway to implement the course from the next academic session starting in April 2022.
Shukla said there are 1,30,000 primary schools in Uttar Pradesh where seven lakh teachers are employed. Based on the evaluation of this pilot project, the state government may consider implementing the happiness curriculum in all the schools, he added.
