Planning minister, TR Zeliang urged the teaching fraternity to focus on imparting quality education to the upcoming students.
Speaking as the chief guest at the inaugural function of the Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya at Jalukie, the minister urged for a close coordination between teachers, parents and the students and to take up their respective roles in bringing about quality in the education sector.
Quoting Dr. Radhakrishnan’s words, “Teaching gives me satisfaction and peace of mind”, the minister insisted the teaching community to be dedicated and socially interactive as well.
Talking on the same line, the minister appealed the teachers of both Sainik School Punglwa and JNV Peren to contribute their innovative ideas in alleviating poverty in the district.
The minister also urged the public to have sense of ownership of what has been freely invested by the centre for the welfare of our poor yet bright students. DC Peren, Khrienuo C Metha, who is also the Chairman of the JNV managing committee, challenged the teachers of the prestigious institute to impart quality education so that the students are bold enough to face the contemporary challenges of the competitive world. She appealed the teachers to transform young minds so they emerge as wholesome persons with potentials to get considerably good jobs.
Speaking at the occasion, Principal of JNV Kohima also stressed on the need to give utmost importance on education. Discipline and qualitative education is an indicator of a healthy economy, he said while urging the leaders and the administration to cooperate with the school management.
Principal, Sainik School Punglwa also dwelt on the crucial role of the teachers in residential schools where their life itself is already a sub conscious lesson book for the students. He urged the need for teachers to be able to identify pupils and lift the poor students up by clubbing them with the right students.
The minister, school authorities and faculties of JNV and the general public expressed their heartfelt gratitude to Old Jalukie village, particularly the land owner, late Taziegum Zeliang for generously allotting sufficient land for the school free of cost.
