Dimapur, Dec. 27: A two-day long golden jubilee celebrations of the Jakhama Students’ Union (JSU) got underway today at Campion School Ground in Jakhama.

Koko Vizotha, managing director of Fernwood Higher Secondary School, spoke during the inaugural function, addressing the gathering on the topic “Education and its impact in the present context”.

According to updates from the organizers, Vizotha emphasized the need to choose careers and professions properly. She urged the students to follow their ambitions and what inspires them and not only based on the advice of their parents.

Vizotha also challenged the students to go into the private sector, besides encouraging the gathering with concepts about the virtues of hard work and diligence. She said that talent alone would not ensure success. She called upon the parents to get more involved with the children by investing their time and support.

Further, stating that ‘bookish knowledge’ would not ensure complete education, Vizotha called upon the students to seek the wisdom of their parents.

The golden jubilee’s souvenir was released by K Ashi Khieya, additional director general of the National Academy of Customs Excise & Narcotics, Shillong.

A literary competition followed the function.
