Jalandhar, July 6

As many as 95 newly recruited school heads of different districts, who participated in the five-day virtual training workshop organised from June 29 to July 3, hailed the initiative of the Education Department for imparting training by holding virtual workshops for 989 school heads including 317 under RMSA in different batches.

The Punjab Education Department has roped in Indian School of Business (ISB) to impart professional training on a par with international standards to the newly recruited school heads.

The objective of the programme was to develop motivational, leadership qualities among them and shape their overall personality, so that they could effectively contribute towards qualitative improvement in education.

The first batch of the training was organised from June 29 to July 3. Lovedeep Singh, Headmaster, Government High School, Sihan Daud in Ludhiana district, while sharing his experiences, said, a few years ago, he had joined an institute in Chandigarh for attending coaching as he was to appear for Staff Selection Board examination. He had to pay a sum of Rs50,000 for coaching. But, virtual classes by the ISB experts were far better than those coaching classes.

Poonam, Headmistress, Government High School, Budha Theh (Amritsar); Deepika, Headmistress, Chhauni Mohalla, Ludhiana and Sunita, Headmistress, Government High School, Takarala (Nawanshahr), while terming the training fruitful, said, they were equipped with highly professional managerial and leadership qualities. In addition, the ISB experts gave them valuable tips for mobilising community participation for infrastructural development, communication skills, personality development, emotional intelligence quotient, leadership skills for mobilising staff to work cohesively, stress management, assess personality traits for ensuring optimum as well as judicious utilisation of available human resources among other things, said Sunita.

In the present crisis, it is important to keep students updated with their subjects as well as their personality development activities through virtual classes as schools are closed.
