He also took time to  extend complements to all the office-bearers of the State CBSE School Association. 

Delivering the presidential address, Dr Indira Rajan extended gratitude to Union Minister for HRD Smrithi Irani for deciding to conduct the CBSE national-level cultural meet in December in New Delhi.

Students from 1,300 CBSE schools in the state will flaunt their talents in the event. The district-level and zone-level competitions  will take place in September and October.

Those selected through these sub-levels will qualify for the state-level and subsequently the national-level meet. 

According to the office-bearers, the Centre’s decision to conduct a national-level competition was taken following the incessant requests from the school managements in Kerala.

The officials also requested the minister to give grace marks for the students who  qualified in those competitions.
