Capital in-service govt teachers’ trg underway

ITANAGAR, Aug 20: The training for in-service teachers of the government schools of the capital complex began at VKV Nirjuli, VKV Chimpu and Holy Cross School on Monday.
Attending the programme at VKV Nirjuli, where elementary level teachers are undergoing training, Capital Complex Deputy Commissioner Prince Dhawan said “focus should be on elementary level as it is when the students develop the foundation of their educational career.”
He urged the trainees to be sincere and work with dedication, saying the highest reward for a teacher is to see their students achieve big in life.
He stressed that the performance of the Class 10 and 12 board examinations last year had painted a sorry picture.
“Though many schools are lacking infrastructure, the district administration is trying to fulfill all infrastructural gaps through the newly-launched scheme of the state government, the Chief Minister’s Samast Shiksha Yojana,” informed the DC.
“However, the performance of a school depends on the teachers and the students, as can be seen from the fact that in earlier days there was no infrastructure but the quality of education was never compromised,” he said.
“The teachers play the most important role in a student’s life. It is therefore necessary that you have that passion to do justice to your job and take ownership of the children to shape up the future of the students,” the DC said.
He said the training is also being organised to ensure two-way communication and sharing of knowledge, “as it will not only help the trainees to gain knowledge but also to impart and share their knowledge, and that is how the knowledge grows, as learning is a continuous process.”
The training also seeks to provide a platform to exchange ideas and learn how the private schools are able to perform well, he added.
The DC thanked the principals of the three schools for their cooperation.
Later, he informed that every teacher in the capital complex would undergo such training, in collaboration with various organisations.
The training is being organised by the DA on CSR basis, without any burden on government exchequer for any kind of training fees.
