CM Sarma is keen on bringing changes in infrastructural development of schools in Barak valley: MLA Dipayan
SILCHAR, Sept 6: State CM Himanta Biswa Sarma is keen on bringing changes in infrastructural development of Barak valley, stated silchar legislator Dipayan Chakraborty while speaking on the occasion of 61st Teachers’ Day celebration organised by district administration Cachar at Gandhi Bhavan here on Monday.
In his address, Dipayan urged all school principals and presidents of school management committee authorities to cooperate with the Government in developing schools’ infrastructure.
“We all know that the recent floods have devastated the schools. The government has taken some schemes, plans and programmes to develop these schools,” Dipayan added.
Elaborating on the role of teachers towards building the society, Dipayan Chakraborty said, “Teaching is a noble profession. Broadly speaking, the role of a teacher is to help students learn by imparting knowledge to them and by setting up a situation in which students can and will learn effectively.”
Dipayan also heaped praises on teachers for taking online classes during the Covid-19 pandemic situation.
“Taking online classes was something new for the teachers, but they did it successfully,” Dipayan quipped.
It is pertinent to mention that MLA Dipayan Chakraborty conducted a series of meetings with the principals and the presidents of various school management committees in recent times.
Lakhipur MLA Kaushik Rai also spoke on the role of teachers in one’s life.
Talking at the event, Kaushik Rai said, “Teachers shape our lives. They guide us. We should always remember that after parents, it is the teachers who shape our future. A school-going student mostly spends his time with his or her teachers. Politicians can only bring development. But it is the teachers who can inspire an entire nation.”
Teachers Abhijit Saha, Soumyajit Chakraborty and Manashi Sinha threw light on the role of a teacher in a student’s life. The primary role of a teacher is to deliver classroom instruction that helps students learn. Saha threw light on the life and times of Indian physicist Harish Chandra Verma. Sinha elaborated on the various types of ‘systems of education’ (from Vedic system of education to Western system of education).
Earlier, in her welcome address, inspector of schools, Semina Yasmin Ara Rahman said, “Only celebration of Teacher’s Day is not enough. We should always follow the path shown by our teachers. Their ideals and principles should guide us.”
She commended the initiative to felicitate 24 teachers as part of the 61st Teachers’ Day celebrations.
“Students should learn from the life of Bharat Ratna Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, the great Indian philosopher and politician who served as the 2nd President of India. He was born in a Telugu-speaking family in Tiruttani district on September 5,” she added.
It’s worth mentioning that 24 teachers of different schools of Cachar district were felicitated at the event.
The program was also attended by district development commissioner and in-charge of education Rajib Roy and other officials.
