Taking forward the vision to provide Quality Education to every child, Faridabad Navchetna Trust on 23rd May, 2017 organised an Interactive Session Programme for the Heads of 27 Schools that have been adopted by Faridabad Navchetna Trust at Manav Rachna Campus. The 27 Heads of the Government Schools were invited to participate and discuss on the need to improve the education system and in that the event focused upon the needs of the students for their overall holistic development.
In his welcome address, Dr N.C. Wadhwa, Vice-Chancellor, MRIU said, “We believe in taking the legacy forward of Dr. O.P. Bhalla to serve society through education.” Speaking at length about the need to make the education system more robust, he said, “We are living in a time where there’s a need for skill-based knowledge. A lot of our neighbouring countries who were behind us even two decades ago, are now ahead of us. The credit goes to their skill-based knowledge economy. Hence, skill-based education is required to make India emerge as a stronger economy. By the year 2030, India can provide more workforce in comparison to China and the US if we train our students well. We must not lose the opportunity to exploit this situation. And this can only happen if we provide a more conducive environment for both learning and teaching.”
Meanwhile, eminent educationist and former Air Force Sq. Ldr (Retd) Shri Yudh Bir Singh Guliya also emphasized on the quality of education stating, “The teachers are our nation builders. The education has to be imparted in the formative years of the child and there has to be a strong connectivity between a teacher and a child.”
Mr. Guliya also spoke at length on the changes required in the ‘Right to Education Act’ (RTE 2009).
The Seminar was graced by Dr M.M. Kathuria, Trustee, MREI; Dr. Pramod Kumar, State Programme Officer, Directorate of School Education, Haryana; Ms. Manoj Kaushik, District Education Officer, Directorate of School Education, Haryana; Dr Chavi Bhargava, Dean, FMS, MRIU and Ms Sanyogita Sharma, Head, MRIS- Charmwood.
