DIMAPUR — A two-day community outreach programme was held at Mission Centre, Longleng, on May 5 and 6, organised by the department of Education, Nagaland University Kohima Campus, in collaboration with Phom Lempong (PBCA) for teachers, students, and parents of Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya and Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Avasiya Vidyalaya hostels in Longleng under the Samagra Shiksha.

According to a press release, the resource persons for the community outreach were Dr. Limala, associate professor; Narola Chuba, assistant professor; Kedvoneinuo Solo Thong, PhD research scholar; and Megosielie Khate, PhD research scholar, all from the Education department of Nagaland University.

As part of it, the topics discussed were the relationship between students and teachers, teaching skills, methods of teaching Science and Mathematics, counselling skills, teaching methods and strategies, professional ethics and accountability, understanding child psychology, and the importance of mental health.

For the parents, the topics included community participation in school education, responsible parenthood, and challenges and issues in education.

Speaking on the occasion, Limala emphasised the role of teachers, highlighting their significance not only in students’ lives but also in society at large. She addressed the expectations placed on teachers by society and discussed the challenges and pressures they face in both family and social spheres.

Limala encouraged teachers to cultivate strength in their spiritual lives, citing it as a good trait for educators.

In her brief speech, Chuba advised the teachers to perceive themselves as coaches and mentors rather than merely as instructors. She remarked that they are employed to assist students, urging them to encourage the reading of the Bible.

Furthermore, Chuba advocated for equipping students and aiding in the development of their skills. She stressed the importance of not solely imparting the knowledge possessed by the teachers but rather empowering students to help themselves.
