CBSE Reading Mission and Initiatives for 2024-25

Reading is a fundamental skill that serves as the cornerstone of education and personal development. According to the National Achievement Survey, proficient reading skills correlate directly with academic success across subjects. This report further emphasises the critical role of reading; by highlighting that a significant percentage of students in India lack basic reading proficiency, hindering their overall learning outcomes. Reading not only enhances mental abilities but also promotes empathy, critical thinking and a broader understanding of the world. The National Education Policy (NEP) of 2020, also emphasizes providing access to high-quality children’s literature to cultivate a reading culture across the country.

These reports underscore the urgency of prioritizing and improving reading skills to ensure a literate and knowledgeable society, laying the foundation for future academic and professional achievements.

In line, with the recommendations of NEP 2020, the CBSE Reading Mission was launched on September 20, 2021, with the primary objective of fostering a strong culture of reading in all the affiliated schools nationwide. By incorporating these initiatives, CBSE aims to instil a lifelong love for reading and equip students with essential literacy skills for their academic and personal growth.

The following are some of the key activities made available under the CBSE Reading Mission for all CBSE-affiliated schools :

  1. Observance of National Reading Day and Reading Week
  2. CBSE Reading Challenge
  3. CBSE Budding Authors Program

1. Observance of National Reading Day and Reading Week

This is celebrated every year on 19th June to honour the legacy of the late P.N. Panicker, the father of the Library Movement. The Board encourages the schools to participate in this initiative to promote reading habits among students through a range of engaging activities.

2. CBSE Reading Challenge

With a view to harness the reading skills and to showcase the skills and competencies in the Reading and Literacy area, amongst the students of the Board; the annual, CBSE Reading Challenge for the academic session 2024-25, will be conducted in August 2024.

The CBSE Reading Challenge is an exciting opportunity for students in classes 6th to 10th of CBSE-affiliated schools to enhance their reading comprehension and critical thinking skills.

3. CBSE Budding Authors Program

The CBSE Budding Authors Program aims to ignite the creative spark within students by encouraging them to explore the art of storytelling. By writing and submitting short stories under this program, students have the exciting opportunity to express their imagination and ideas, with a chance to see their work published, hand-holded and an opportunity to meet renowned story-writers for children. This enriching experience not only hones their writing abilities but also nurtures their confidence and self-expression.
