Teaching human values to students must: DGP
IMPHAL, 12th Oct: DGP LM Khaute stressed the need for teaching human values to the students in school apart from helping the youngsters pursuing their academic goals in order to bring peace and development in the society.
Speaking as chief guest at the Parents’ Day celebration of St Joseph’s Higher Secondary School here on Saturday, LM Khaute highlighted that teaching the academic syllabus alone is not the purpose of a school.
Education on human values for better teacher-student relationship, respecting parents and elders, kindness, sincerity and social values is equally important to make the students ideal citizens. Such education will help in reducing social crimes and improve interpersonal relationship among the people, he said. Schooling is not only for earning degrees and getting high marks in examination. As such, students should not only pursue their education for getting high marks but always strive to become a better version of themselves.
They should also cultivate a sense of patriotism, nationalism and kindness to become responsible citizens of the society, he said. Archbishop of Imphal most reverend Dominique Lumon presided over the function while SP Imphal East H Jogeshchandra and SSA additional state project director T Phullo attended as guests of honour.
The DGP also donated several sports materials to the school authority during the programme, which also had presentations of various cultural and entertainment items by the students.
