SCERT in collaboration with Nagaland State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (SCPCRs) celebrated Pariksha Pav 2.0 at SIEMAT conference hall on January 28.

According to DIPR report, chairperson SCPCRs Awan Konyak delivering her keynote address said that examinations were part of academic life and since one cannot avoid it should be a joyful experience and not a painful one for students. Konyak said that however due to factors like family pressure, anxiety, nervousness, poor self-confidence and negative thoughts create stress among students during the exam. She stated that to change the outlook and perspective of children towards making exam a joyful activity, the national commission for protection of child rights along with state commission are conducting Pariksha Pav 2.0 across the country. 

Konyak said that environment at school and home was the most important factor which contributes to the way a child reacts to examination. She therefore encouraged the parents and teachers to be appreciative and encourage the child by avoiding comparison with peers and not over reacting to failure. She also urged the teachers and parents to recognize a traumatized child and taking immediate preventive measures and also offer a non-judgmental patient hearing to someone who has suicidal tendencies.
