The Ropar district administration and the Punjab Education Department in collaboration with the Sanjhi Sikhiya organisation held an award ceremony to felicitate 100 teachers of the district who went an extra mile to ensure that students are not deprived of education during the pandemic. ‘Sanjhi Sikhiya’ is a collective movement of young professionals that aims to transform the public education system in the state by enabling dialogues and forming communities.

In the two-hour virtual award ceremony, Deputy Commissioner Sonali Giri, District Education Officer Jarnail Singh, Deputy DEO Charanjit Singh Sodhi and retired Principal Sucha Singh Sidhu addressed the teachers.

The Deputy Commissioner, while congratulating the award winners, appreciated their efforts and commitment to ensuring quality education during the pandemic. She motivated the teachers to keep up with their innovative practices of meaningfully engaging children and keep working as a team to achieve more. Sucha Singh shared the need to facilitate socio-emotional learning among students.

Renu Kaushal, a teacher from the district, shared her experience of evoking a sense of trust among parents towards government schools. Parvinder Singh, another teacher shared how he managed to convince parents of a child with learning difficulties to ensure that he continued on the learning path.

During the function, the speakers disclosed that 11 young leaders from the Sanjhi Sikhiya flagship programme and Punjab Youth Leaders Programme will be working in the district for the next two years. The young leaders will work towards developing a shared vision for education blocks in rural and semi-urban regions of the district.
