School Tunes Children to Kerala Culture
One step ahead of Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is a Kottayam school. CBSE has introduced theatre studies as selective subject for plus two students from the academic year 2013-14. To outsmart the CBSE, Lourdes Public School of Kottayam has decided to teach folklore and folk dances to get the minds of children attuned to State’s culture. Folk art forms theyyam and padayani have been included in the curriculum from the academic year 2013-14.
As prelude to the introduction of folk art forms a week-long folk cultural fest was conducted in the school.
