In an attempt to establish good rapport between students and teachers and help in their personality development, the Uttar Pradesh Government mulling to introduce No School Bag Day on Saturdays in state-run schools.
"School kids will be allowed to come to school without their school bags on Saturdays so that they can enjoy themselves in creative activities," an official release pointed out.
The report comes a month after the Yogi Adityanath government decided to replace the khaki uniform for students in state-run schools with smarter dresses that adhere to Indian culture.
Officials reported that the new school colours will be implemented from the new academic session.
Ajay Kumar Singh, the secretary for basic education in Lucknow said that the idea was put before the chief minister during a presentation in Lucknow on April 3 when Yogi Adityanath took stock of the education department.
From the upcoming academic session, students will be seen in their new uniforms-- a pink-and-white check shirt with a brown collar and brown trousers for boys and a similar shirt with a brown skirt for girls. At the senior level, girl students will wear brown salwar and a red kurta with a brown dupatta.
