                                                   Workshop  on SAFETY AND SECURITY OF CHILDREN IN SCHOOLS   March 6, 2021

                                         Conducted by :National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR)

                     

A District Level Workshop on Safety and Security of Children in Schools was organized by the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights. It was a one-day participatory creative workshop on March 6, 2021 for the Principals and teachers of different schools. 

 

The main objective of this workshop was to create awareness and educate the staff members to instruct  children on issues pertaining to child rights, child protection and personal hygiene. The focus was on creative expression of these issues which are considered a  taboo in the society.

The purpose of the session revolved around the mantra “Do not talk to a child, talk with a child.”

 

The  highlight of the workshop was  to learn about the children's rights, ‘good and bad’ touch concepts and dealing with them, personal and menstrual hygiene, importance of nutrition, emergency contact etc.

 To achieve this goal, the staff members were guided to infuse their programs and offerings with international and intercultural perspective so that students can move forward with the attitudes and understanding that will provide them with a solid base wherever their studies or work may take them. Primary and secondary school members must further commit to undertake  an ongoing external quality assurance process to enhance student learning.

It was an informative and engaging session.

“Learning never exhausts the mind.”

 

Keeping these words by Leonardo da Vinci in mind, Indraprastha GLOBAL SCHOOL organised an offline workshop on New Education Policy 2020 on March 6, 2021 to apprise the faculty members about the radical changes implemented by the MHRD The National Education Policy 2020 (NEP 2020), outlining the vision of India's new education system.

 

 The new policy replaces the previous National Policy on Education, 1986 which will bring transformational reforms in school and higher education systems in the country.

 

The teachers were briefed about the foundational pillars of Access, Equity, Quality, Affordability and Accountability of Education. This policy is aligned to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and aims to transform India into a vibrant knowledge society and global knowledge superpower by making both school and college education more holistic, flexible, multidisciplinary, suited to 21st century’s needs and aimed at bringing out the unique capabilities of each student.

Workshop at National Science Centre

The science workshop was held at National Science Centre at Pragati Maidan for classes VI-X on 23 Sept’17. The workshop aimed at creating and enhancing scientific awareness while at the same time imparting science education in an interesting way. Students were divided into two groups; students of classes VI-VIII attended workshop at physics lab on the topic ‘Speakers Out of Waste’ and students of classes IX-X attended workshop at biotech lab on the topic ‘Peep into Cells’.

Biotechnology Session

The following activities were done in this session:

1. Students observed speedy movement of Paramecium under a high definition compound microscope. Paramecium was taken in a cavity slide from a sample of pond water which they had already stored in their lab.

 

2. Students were divided into ten groups, five students in each group. Each group isolated, stained and made a culture of Lactobacillus bacteria and then observed the shape of the bacteria under a microscope.

 

3. Students observed and measured the size of temporary mount of cheek cells.

 

4. They also observed pollen grains and drosophila melanogaster under a sterotype microscope to understand the difference between different microscopes.

The following activities were done in this session:

1. Students first had an interactive session with the person in charge and were told about various innovations in science and technology.

 

2. All the students were shown the procedure of activity to be done via a video clip.

 

3. Students were then divided into groups and given separate work benches and material required to make their own Speaker out of waste.

 

4. The session ended with students testing their speakers and explanation of some other gadgets like flying Drone, acoustic guitar etc.

 

After the workshops were over the students took a tour of the following galleries- Water- the elixir of life, Hall of nuclear power, Our science and technology heritage, Human biology, Pre-historic life , Fun science, Information revolution, Emerging technologies-Space Technology, Information and Communication Technology, Medical and Biotechnology, Oceanography and Earth Sciences, Agricultural Technology, Material Science, Nanotechnology, Energy and Transportation Technology. The galleries showcased a plethora of exhibits that covered various topics. Overall the workshop and the visit was an enriching experience for the students to ignite their imagination and help them to understand the science concepts in depth.
