 Trimester Pattern

                         

As per the announcement made by the Honorable Chief Minister in the election Manifesto to reduce the load of books the trimester system will be introduced in all schools from the academic year 2012-13 for classes I to VIII.

This system ensures that the children need to carry only the books needed for the relevant term. This will substantially reduce the book load of children physically and also remove the psychological fear in the young minds.

The academic year will be divided into three terms as follows:

I Term

June, July, August & September

II Term

October, November & December

III Term

January, February, March & April

 

The contents of the books have activities integrated in the text book in such a way so as to evaluate the children in Scholastic and Co-Scholastic areas.

Studies conducted nationally and internationally have recommended that the load of school bags should not be more than 10% to 15% of the body weight of the child. Keeping this in mind the syllabus of the academic year 2012-13 has been divided into three parts and textbooks have been reduced in size to accommodate the portions only for the relevant term.

In the first term of the academic year 2012-13 for classes I to V one unit book consolidating all subjects and for classes VI to VIII two unit books consolidating subjects language and English in book 1 and Maths, Science and Social Studies in book 2 are being introduced.

                                       


The Table below indicates the reduction in weight as compared to the past. This Government is sure that this will save the children from the musculoskeletal problems like kyphotic posture, scoliosis etc.
