BHOPAL [Maha Media]: In commemoration of International Day against Violence and Bullying (including Cyber Bullying) at School on November 5, Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has asked its affiliated schools to join hands with UNESCO, New Delhi, in observing this day and ensure safe and secure learning environment for all students.
The board in its release stated “As you are aware, incidents in some schools across the country have highlighted the need for a safe and secure learning environment for all children.
Violence in schools has severe consequences in learners’ lives, ranging from low self-esteem and depression, with many students avoiding school, achieving below their potential, or dropping out completely.
