CBSE to organize students exchange programme with Japan


The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is all set to organize a student exchange programme with Japan starting this October. The Board has also urged schools to participate in the same.

The Japan-East Asia Network of Exchange for Students and Youth Programme (JENESYS) will be the home to around 182 students, specializing in specifically notified sports as well as cultural field. The board has requested various schools to start the nomination process of students before 23 July.

However, students from classes IX-XII will be allowed to participate. Although schools will nominate names, the central government will have the final say as the trip will be organized under the aegis of the ministry of human resource and development (MHRD). The programme will kick start on October 28 till December 16. The students will be subsequently divided into three batches.

The first batch (October 28) is being fixed exclusively for soccer players and only boys will be allowed in the group. The second batch (November 10-18) will be specifically for students excelling in the cultural field. Similarly, the third batch will be for students engaged in the field of lawn tennis, volley ball and basket ball.

The board has also made it clear not to nominate the same student for more than one category. Students are also required to be physically fit, mentally agile as well as creative to undertake the proposed trip to Japan.

In a letter, the CBSE concluded that the main objective behind the JENESYS trip is to deepen mutual understanding among the young generation as well as to lay the foundation for future bond among the youths in Asian and Oceanian Countries.
