THE AWAKENED CITIZEN PROGRAM
AWAKE ARISE AND STOP NOT TILL THE GOAL IS REACHED…SWAMI VIVEKANANDA
The two- day level 1 training sessions of Awakened Citizen Program conducted by Ramakrishna Mission resource persons Mr. Sanjib Sengupta and Ms. Kuheli Sen, was held in our school premises on the 13th and 14th of June 2019. The entire two- day training was received by 21 teachers of Delhi Public School North Kolkata and 3 teachers of Indira Gandhi Memorial High School Dum Dum. The sessions were held with accurate precision as devised and recommended by the Ramakrishna Mission. For this purpose all necessary training tools were sent by Ramakrishna Mission, Delhi by courier a week before the training.
During the sessions teachers understood the value of this CBSE recommended programme and the usefulness of implementing it in classroom teaching. On the first day, teachers were introduced to the programme and led through some explorations and videos to imbibe in them the essence of the teachings of Swami Vivekananda. The universal and unique possibilities of individuals were thoroughly explained. On the second day, a demonstration of class presentation was given by the trainers and teachers were grouped into 6 groups of 4 teachers each. Each group was given one Universal Possibility to present before others. After some preparation the presentations started. All the groups presented as good as possible. Mr. Sengupta guided the teachers wherever it was necessary.
At the end of the second day teachers were asked to write their feedback in a regular feedback form. Most of the teachers showed immense enthusiasm and found the programme to be extremely helpful in developing the desired personality and strength of character in young students. What impressed everyone was the value of acceptance and Shraddha.
All 21 teachers of DPSNK and 3 teachers of IGMHS received the ACP Level 1 certificate for attending and participating in the training.
