CBSE to affiliate 5 Delhi schools with its international board
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will affiliate five schools in India with its ‘international board’. As many as 20 schools functioning in foreign countries are already affiliated with the CBSE International Board. Harmeet Kaur Waraich, principal of Nankana Sahib Public School, Ludhiana, said this after returning to the city from Bangalore, where she attended the 17th annual conference of CBSE Sahodaya School Complexes on December 20 and 21.
Waraich said: “This declaration was made by CBSE Chairman Vineet Joshi and Head (Innovative and Research), CBSE, Dr Sahdna Parashar. After already affiliating 20 schools in foreign countries in the session 2010-2011, it now plans to include five schools of Delhi from the coming academic session on an experimental basis. If the feedback is satisfactory, more schools will be affiliated to the CBSEIB.”
The conference was attended by nearly 500 CBSE school principals from across the country, with five of them from Ludhiana.
Pramjit Kaur, principal of BCM Arya Model Senior Secondary School, Shastri Nagar, who also attended the conference, said: “Many key issues such as school-based assessments, addressing resistance to change, teacher empowerment, supporting teachers in implementing continuous and comprehensive evaluation (CCE), embedding technology in CCE environment, strengthening formative learning, responding to diversity through CCE, dimensions of co-scholastic skills and life skills education, were discussed.”
Waraich said: “It was also decided to start an online filing of CCE card from January 15 for Class IX and X.”
