Government middle school, Thahekhu on Thursday celebrated its golden jubilee at the school premises with minister of school education, SCERT and vice president, Nagaland Education Mission Society, Nyeiwang Konyak as the chief guest.
Nyeiwang during his speech as chief guest stated that the school has matured in 50 years and also trusted the school might have produced doctors, engineers and well known figures in the society.
He cited that if the government had the money, it would have built more schools and created more post for teachers, however he alleged that to maintain a good school was not in the hands of the government, but teachers as well as village education committee (VEC). He further articulated that VEC/TEC would continue to enrich the commitment in the years to come and be an exemplary set up to other villages and towns.
The minister said after the NPF government came to power, education in many programs like the SSA and RMSA were established for better educational environment with the support of the Government of India. He also mentioned that ‘Right to Compulsory and free education’ should be made mandatory in the state to children between 6-14years of age as passed by the Govt. of India.
On the sidelines of the programme, when asked to comment on corporal punishment, Nyeiwang made his stance clear by stating that ‘alternative measures’ should be practiced rather than canning.
He also urged one to practice ‘dignity of labor’ inherited from the ancestors.
On the issue of bogus teachers, he requested those who were falsely appointed to surrender themselves rather than passing the buck on the secretary or the chief minister to deliver justice.
It may be mentioned that government middle school was first established as a lower primary School in 1960 from classes A to 2 with strength of 12 students and 1 teacher. At present, the school has 787 students with classes 1 to 8 with 22 teachers and 3 non-teaching staff.
At the programme, short speeches were delivered by MLA & Adviser, Azheto Zhimomi, MLA Hewoto Awomi, Head GB Thahekhu village, Hukiye Yepthomi. Former head teachers, former VEC chairman, members, senior teachers, present head teacher and teacher associated with GMS were also felicitated.
VEC, GMS Chairman Tovihoto Ayemi had earlier welcomed the gathering while DEO Dimapur Asono Ndang released the jubilee journal.
Meanwhile, various presentations like archery, folk-dance, and songs were presented by the students.
