On the occasion of Teachers’ Day, Manipur education department Wednesday conferred state teachers’ awards to ten outstanding teachers. 

The award carrying a shawl, a citation and cash prize of Rs 10,000 each was presented to the selected teachers at the state level Teachers’ Day function held at the auditorium of Manipur State Film Development Society (MSFDS), Palace Compound in Imphal on Wednesday.

State chief minister N Biren Singh and education minister Th Radheshyam presented the awards to teachers of the government schools. On the occasion, chief minister also announced that the model residential schools will be set up in seven selected districts.

Singh further said that the first session of Dhanamanjuri University would begin from this year. 

Dhanamanjuri (DM) University is a cluster university comprising five institutions- DM College of Science, DM College of Arts, DM College of Commerce, LMS Law College and GP Women’s College, which occupy common, adjoining or neighbouring physical spaces.

He also informed that many school drop-out children had been re-admitted under state government’s Lairik Tamhansi (Lets Learn) scheme. A total of 752 children had been re-admitted in class I to VIII and another 876 children in class IX to XII under the scheme so far, he claimed.  Text books were being provided to these re-admitted students as well as students from poor family background free of cost under the scheme, he added.

Stating that it was essential to provide lodging/quarter facilities for teachers and government employees who are deputed in hill districts, Singh said that transit accommodations for teachers/government employees would be constructed at 21 identified places in hill districts.

State education minister Th Radheshyam said that the main architects of the society are teachers, and they should be the catalyst of a positive change. The minister observed that teachers’ role had become so complex these days due to the fast changing scenario of technological advancement. 

Earlier at the function, the chief minister led the gathering in offering floral tribute to the photograph of former president Dr Radha Krishnan.

A book entitled, ‘Experimental Learning, Gandhiji’s Nai Talim’ was also released at the function. The book was published through the joint effort of SCERT and Mahatma Gandhi National Council of Rural Education.
