LG highlights NEP’s role for critical thinking, creativity, individuality and inquisitiveness
Says ‘never stop chasing your dreams’ is my message to youth
Jammu: National Education Policy has provided immense possibilities to elevate the learning and create a conducive environment for critical thinking, creativity, individuality and inquisitiveness to flourish so that our young children can learn new things, Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha said Monday at the silver jubilee celebrations of Delhi Public School, Jammu.
According to an official press release, in his address, the LG highlighted the transformation taking place in the education sector and emphasized the need to reinvent the concepts of classroom learning.
“School is the cradle of future leaders and centre of creativity, character building and a fundamental medium to strengthen the value system in our society. Today, the real challenge before our education system is to promote learning beyond the classroom and impart life skills,” the LG said.
He called upon the teaching community and the educational institutions to adopt best practices aligned with the National Education Policy (NEP) to bridge the learning gaps.
The LG encouraged the students to follow their passion and believe in their abilities and potential.
“Never stop chasing your dreams, is my message to our youth. Discover what you really love doing, strive continuously to achieve new goals, reflect on your greatest passion and never ever stop believing in yourself,” the LG said.
On the occasion, the LG inaugurated Roshni lab dedicated to empowerment of visually impaired students.
He also felicitated the winners of the NHPC painting competition and the girls belonging to rural areas who successfully completed basic course on computer education under the ‘Vriddhi’ project.
