Asserting that the graduates are scientific sub-ordinates to the institution, parents and society, Wungtung said counselling should have an integrated approach as it dealt with values, character, personality, performances and looking beyond exams and academia.
He reminded that as counsellors, the graduates must be cautious, focused and to be alert, asserting that graduates were responsible to take the people, family and society at large forward with systematic, disciplined and cumulative approach.
Wungtung urged the graduating teachers to bring inner-self and reform and structure the students for a better society and future.
Principal secretary School Education & SCERT, Menukhol John congratulated the graduating trainees and also welcomed the second batch trainees.
Associate professor and nodal officer guidance & counselling cell, SCERT, Dr Zavise Rume said Nagaland being the first state to introduce the course, there were many other states wishing to adopt the state method of school counselling.
