Workshop on Education through Educators’ Empowerment
JAMMU: A workshop was organised in the auditorium of JK Public School Kunjwani where an eminent educationist S.C Sabestian interacted with the students and teachers of the school. The day began with an inspection of the school. This was followed by an interactive session with the students of the senior wing.
Sabestian in his opening address lauded the infrastructure of the school and the facilities available. He told the students to make constructive use of the available facilities.
An interactive workshop was organised by him for senior students of the school on the topic ‘Student Leadership and Training (Indian Education v/s International Eduaction)’.
While enlightening the students about the qualities of a good leader, he laid stress on quality and not quantity of marks. The students were also told to reflect on their intellectual superiority. He told them to have vision and widen their horizon and stressed that it was important to get above their ego and think on wider spectrum.
Praising S.K Singh, Principal, JK Public School, Kunjwani, he said that he had a fervent desire to excel. He advised the students to stop cramming and apply their knowledge.
Sabestian told the students to follow the maxim of three C’s i.e. Compete, Confidence and Communicate.
The second session for teachers began with a welcome address by Director Brig. Sukhdev Singh who enumerated the achievements of Sabestian. He later handed over the mike to Sabestian who at the outset told the teachers to strive to gain excellence and take their institution forward. In the age where parents are shirking their responsibilities, it is the role of the teacher to facilitate the learning of a child. He advised the teachers to empower themselves so that they can command respect not demand respect.
In the final session, Sabestian told the teachers that they need to delve deep to introspect and make themselves powerful so that they can learn to carve a niche for themselves in the society.
