Spring Dale institutions will soon initiate an exercise to prepare a detailed draft for introducing ‘happiness classes’. The school has decided to think about ways to safeguard and cherish the happiness of students, parents and others associated with it.

Director Spring Dale institutions, Reeta Khanna, said: “Keeping in mind the stress level of a child in today’s world, ‘mission happiness’ assumes great importance. Spring Dale has decided to take up this mission of guarding and upholding happiness of everyone under its wings — students, teachers, mentors and even members of management.”

Many schools in Lucknow have either already introduced or are planning to start ‘happiness classes’. “Happiness — being a relative and abstract term — is an elusive concept. It is known through its outcomes — smiling faces, laughter and better overall performance in all spheres — academics, sports, creativity or cultural activity,” said Khanna.
