ANPSA donates Rs 1.5 lakhs each towards relief of Nagaland and Kerala flood victims


Dimapur, September 17: All Nagaland Private Schools’ Association, Dimapur Unit held its General Body Meeting 2018 at the DBDIL Conference Hall, Don Bosco Hr. Sec. School today. The meeting mainly focused on the celebration of the ANPSA (Dimapur Unit) Silver Jubilee in the month of November 2018.
In his presidential address, the President of ANPSA (Dimapur Unit), Andrew Ahoto dwelt on the modalities to be carried out for the successful celebration of the Silver Jubilee Function. He also announced that ANPSA as a frontal organization of the state would be donating an amount of Rs. 1.5 Lacs towards the relief of the Nagaland landslide victims along with another donation of an amount of Rs. 1.5 Lacs towards the relief of the Kerela flood affected victims.
He also directed the ANPSA Dimapur School members to fix a date for conducting Parents-Management Meetings for the sensitization of Measles-Rubella Vaccination programme by the Department of Health and Family Welfare.
During the discussion hour, along with general issues of the ANPSA, the house also discussed at length on the need for all schools in Nagaland to have a common pattern of Academic Session, i.e from April to March. This, according to the house, would bring about uniformity in academic structure of schools in Nagaland with other schools across India.
This was felt necessary as at present schools under the State Boards (NBSE & BESE) carry out two separate final examinations, one for Classes-LKG to IX in November-December and the other for Classes-X to XII in February-March which leads to undue inconveniences for the smooth conduct of academic and co-curricular programs of individual schools while also creating pressure on the School Management, Teachers, Parents and Students. Boarding Schools also face the brunt of this as they need to cater to the requirements of regular new session students as well as those appearing for the Board Examinations.
Moreover, the new batch of students from Classes-LKG to IX join the schools at a time when the senior students are busy either preparing for their Board Examinations or appearing the same thereby creating undue disturbance in the day-to-day smooth functioning of schools especially those schools which act as Examination Centres. The seriousness and momentum of the Board Examinations are also lost in this process.
Earlier, the General Body Meeting began with the Invocation Prayer by Fr. Philip Magh, Principal, Holy Cross Hr. Sec. School followed by the minutes of the previous ANPSA General Body Meeting which was read out by Leo David, General Secretary, ANPSA (Dimapur Unit) who also proposed the vote of thanks at the end of the meeting. The meeting ended with the closing prayer by Dr. R. Francis, Principal, St. Stephen’s Hr. Sec. School. (Page News Service)
