Under the proposed activity, a special bell will ring thrice a day at 8:45 am, 10:05 am, and 11:50 am in all schools state wide. The purpose of this bell is to remind both students and teachers to drink water and prioritize hydration for better health outcomes. Teachers should ensure that all students drink water during this designated times.

Therefore, all the District Educational Officers in the State are requested to instruct all the Headmasters of schools under their jurisdiction to implement the concept of the “water-bell” as compulsory activity. This proactive measure will contribute significantly for ensuring the well-being of students, especially during the hot summer months.
