The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has given a direction to affiliated schools across the country to make the ‘Pledge for An Abuse-Free World for Children’ - coined by the Kerala State Commission for Protection of Child Rights - an integral part of class assemblies.

 ‘’CBSE strongly feels that children should be involved and given part responsibility of their safety as well as be made aware of their duties, rights and responsibilities,’’ said a Central Board of Secondary Education notification asking schools to convene a special assembly to read out the pledge and then include it in class assemblies throughout the year to reinforce the message.

 ‘’I will not tolerate any type of abusive activities that occur anywhere against me as well as against other children who are my sisters and brothers.

I will always be in the forefront to report any such instances to the parents, authorities and the Police,’’ reads the pledge circulated to CBSE schools.

 The pledge was coined by the Commission as part of its campaign ‘An Abuse-Free World for Children’ which was launched on Children’s Day (November 14) last year.

 The Commission had asked the Directorate of Public Instruction, Kerala and CBSE to introduce the pledge in schools.
