National Education Policy encourages schools to go for Bagless for 19days a month

Hyderabad, August 08, 2022…. City’s school goes bagless once a month extensively from class one 1 to 11. And the response is overwhelming Dr. K. Suvarna, Principal of St. Peter’s High School, Bowenpally.

St. Peter’s High School is one of the very few schools that have gone bagless. While others have gone symbolically, May be for higher classes, this school has gone with full force. All the 2500 students of the school don’t carry books once in a month. Looking at the overwhelming response from all stakeholders like students, parents and teachers, we will explore going bagless for twice a month at-least in a future, Dr. K. Suvarna adds.

And why can’t we have bagless schools asks Dr. K. Suvarna. I am not saying that all days must be bagless. At least few days in a month can be bagless she says.

Kids like them because there is no homework. They are free from heavy load of bags. And learning becomes fun. There is a fun, surprise element. It is inclusive. That is why all are liking it says Dr K. Suvarna. 

Schools and classes become routine and mundane something unique must happen to excite children. And the bagless days adds that excitement shares Ms Geetanjali, another teacher of the school who teaches EVS subject. 

Govt stated that the weight of the school bag should not exceed 10% of the student’s weight. Bagless day some relief to reduce burden, pressure since it is activity oriented, it is more interesting, adds another teacher Nisha Singh

Bagless day or regular day schools, that encourage self-study, do away with mugging and rote learning.
