Innovative ‘Water Bell’ Introduced in Odisha Schools to Keep Students Hydrated

Bhubaneswar: To eradicate heat stroke and dehydration among students, the Odisha government has implemented the innovative ‘water bell’ system in all schools across the state.

This initiative aims to ensure that students remain adequately hydrated during their class hours.

The School and Mass Education Department in a letter sent on Thursday has instructed all Block Education Officers (BEOs) and District Education Officers (DEOs) to enforce this system immediately in all schools.

Under this initiative, the school bell will ring three times at 8:30 AM, 10 AM, and 11 AM to remind students to drink water in their respective classes.

Teachers will ensure that all students drink adequate amount of water. Added to it, the students have been advised to use umbrellas and caps.

Because of the rising summer heat, the government has announced morning classes for all schools in Odisha from April 2. As per the direction, the students of Class I to XII will attend the classes in their schools from 7 am to 11.30 am.
