Zeliang inaugurates new school in Peren
Dimapur, Nov. 23 (EMN): Elaborating on the need to impart quality education, chairman of United Democratic Alliance (UDA) government, TR Zeliang, insisted that positive role of teachers and management is important for a school to grow in the right direction.
Zeliang stated this during the inauguration of Ikiesing Memorial School in Nkwareu village under Peren district on November 23. While emphasising on quality education, has underscored the positive role of teachers and management to enable the school to grow in the right direction.
Acknowledging that management of school is not easy due to high investment which also demanded huge responsibility, he stated that the people of Jalukie area are fortunate to be blessed with sufficient land.
“Jalukie town is one of the fastest growing towns in Nagaland and with it the demand for admission in schools has increased,” Zeliang said. He informed that higher secondary schools in Jalukie have turned down many applicants for new admission due to non-availability of seats.
Drawing a parallel comparison in running of a school to sports, he maintained that “teachers are the coaches and students are the players.” Just like in any sports team, he stated that team spirit is needed for success.
Encouraging the management and the students alike, he said that “the result from the school will not only make the individual proud but the school in particular and the district in general.”
While opining that quality education along with skill development is important, he said, “Students should be equipped with the quality to work in any sector, government or private, after their studies.”
While seeking discipline among the students, he stated that the most important quality for success is discipline and added that “a disciplined child will automatically excel in the things they do, be it in studies or other activities in life.”
He also cited examples in countries like South Korea and USA how schools were maintained and how students competed among themselves.
Former state chaplain, Kuzierang Thou, son of Late Ikiesing, is the proprietor of the school.
