Subject: XII CBSE Heritage Education and Heritage India Quiz 2012.

Dear Principal,

Indians have always been proud of their cultural heritage. The tangible (monuments/ artifacts), intangible elements (folk traditions/ language) and even natural heritage and its bio-diversity need to be preserved and conserved.

It is important for learners to know about the heritage which enables them to understand the beliefs, values, history and socio-cultural context of their country. This helps them to accept and respect the cultural differences given in the diversity and leads to developing critical skills.

The Board has therefore initiated a micro site on Heritage Education at which will help teachers to explore, learn and empower their students with local heritage and connect them to National and World Heritage Sites.

Heritage Education in the CBSE also includes the celebration of the Heritage Day on 12th January when school children reaffirm their commitment to preserve and protect Heritage monuments of the country. The Board has constantly laid emphasis on promoting Heritage Clubs, initiating Heritage Walks and conducting cultural events to enrich every learner’s overall experience.

The CBSE Heritage India Quiz, initiated in 2001, is an Inter School Quiz which has been conceptualized by the Board with the objective of creating awareness and appreciation in the student community towards the rich cultural heritage and diversity of our country.
