US First Lady Melania Trump is expected to attend a happiness curriculum class at a Delhi government school during her visit to the capital next week alongside her husband President Donald Trump.
According to Indianexpress, Melana Trump will attend the class on Tuesday, 25 February, and will be accompanied by Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal, as well as Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister Manish Sisodia.
The happiness curriculum, started in July 2018, is a flagship programme of the Delhi government in the education sector, and seeks to help children relieve stress, meditate and openly speak out on issues that trouble them. Under the programme, students spend 45 minutes daily meditating, telling stories and sharing their experiences while a teacher oversees the process.

“The Delhi government is keen on showing Melania Trump a few other programmes they have started, such as the entrepreneurship curriculum, but her visit is expected to last just an hour or so. She and her team have expressed a desire to witness a happiness class as it happens, so that is definitely on the cards,” a source was quoted by Indianexpress as saying.
US President Donald Trump and Melania Trump will fly to Ahmedabad on 24 February where an event is scheduled to be held at the Motera cricket stadium that will also be attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Afterwards, they are to depart for Agra to visit the Taj Mahal and later proceed to Delhi.
On Tuesday, Trump will be given a ceremonial welcome at the Rashtrapati Bhavan, visit Rajghat, and meet Narendra Modi for talks.
President Donald Trump will also attend a business roundtable organised by the US embassy.
