KOHIMA — Hiazu Meru, Additional Secretary of School Education and SCERT on Wednesday told the new recruits to get themselves well acquainted with the rules regarding the functioning of the government.

He was addressing the inaugural programme of a two-day orientation programme for NSSB recruits under the department of School Education at the Morung conference hall of the Directorate of School Education (DoSE) in Kohima.

The official called upon the new recruit to know the rules, notifications, and office memorandum and rigidly follow them. He added that the department would shortly issue certain protocols and advisories for routing files.

He implored the senior staff in the department of School Education to guide the new recruits with proper guidance for better functioning of the office in the days to come.

While highlighting on the importance of keeping oneself updated, he asked the new recruits to keep abreast of themselves about the evolving technology. Besides, he underscored the need to change mindset and attitude towards work by limiting social obligations for better output of the government offices functioning.

Stating that there would be challenges in various forms from day one of their posting, he encouraged them to be mentally prepared and be at their best in any circumstances. He also sought commitment from the new recruits saying that they are the ambassadors of the School Education department.

Acknowledging the problems faced by the teachers posted in the rural areas, particularly in relation to accommodation, he suggested that the Education department could collaborate with the Rural Development department for the construction of accommodation in the villages for the teachers.

Meanwhile, the principal director of School Education, Thavaselam K, informed that the department is organising an orientation programme for the first time with an aim to give them ideas to cope with different situations.

He informed that the School Education department is the second largest department after the police department and bound to have lots of problems. He added that the department is trying to be the best despite inheriting lots of problems from the past.

In this regard, he pointed out that the department is focusing on five pillars namely foundational literacy and numeracy; bridging the gaps needed in terms of physical infrastructure and digital infrastructure for the schools; pedagogical, curricular and assessment to competence; and vocational education to help children develop an entrepreneurial mindset.

He further asserted the need to immediately address foundational literacy and numeracy and teacher management.

The programme was led by N Thungchio Shitire, assistant director, while the vote of thanks was delivered by Razouseyi Vese, additional director.
