Mt. Tiyi College, Wokha, officially inaugurated the newly constructed college park on the June 3 with Wokha DC Rovilato Mor as the chief guest where a large number of students and staff attended the function. The recreation park, named ‘MTC Park,’ has been completed through the initiative of the Principal, Chubatola Longkumer. Perhaps, the first of its kind in Nagaland in any of the government colleges, the park has a canteen, designed partly in the form of traditional Kyong hut and surrounded by three satellite sheds and three elongated concrete seats with detachable shades.
The park has been planned and supervised by a group of MTC lecturers and the construction carried out by a party of local builders from Wokha village.
The park is to serve as a refreshment centre exclusively for the students and the staff of this college. It is a perfect place for the students and the teachers to relax during break and off periods. The park can also accommodate a good number of people in the open and is therefore an ideal place for any out-door programme of the college.
DC in his inaugural speech, was appreciative of the Principal of the college for coming up with this novel idea of having a recreation park within the college campus. He also exhorted the gathering on issues concerning work culture; the aspirations of parents for their children; duties and responsibilities of students and on the need to improve our environment through social action and civic sense. He also assured to extend support for the further development of the MTC Park.
The principal, in her address to the gathering, requested the students to take care of the park and make best use of it. The park has been declared a ‘tobacco-free zone’, by the principal. She also highlighted the purpose of this park and dedicated to the students of this college as the fund for the construction of the park was derived from the students’ Welfare fund.
