Evolve Fitness Studio inaugurated at SCET


Dimapur, May 16: The State College Of Teacher Education (SCET) Evolve Fitness Studio & Certificate Course in Physical Education under vocationalisation of Higher Education was inaugurated today at SCET, Kohima.
‘Every hard work that goes into must have its returns’, said Director Higher Education, Kuholi Chishi at the inaugural programme. She congratulated the SCET for coming up with such a noble idea of fitness studio and stated that the progress and development which has come through RUSA, a first of its kind in taking a project on physical education, is a different choice and well chosen.
She pointed that one needs to be fit and teachers definitely need fitness and encouraged the principal, faculty, staff and students to love what they do and take up this initiative very passionately to expand and let it grow from strength to strength. She further said that the good thing about the project is that it can generate its own income and even outsource it.
She lamented that Nagas in general are not good stewards and urged upon all that as educated people we must learn to be good stewards of what we receive from the authorities above us and take care of the facilities, buildings and equipments.
She added that since the Ministry of Human Resource Department has funded the project it will be painful to see if the facilities are not taken care off or misuse. She requested the SCET fraternity to ensure that the facilities, equipments are made use of and maintained properly.
State Project Director, RUSA, Menuokholie Kire, said that the project is a Rashtra flagship programme of Government of India, which was inducted in 2014 in Nagaland and is covering 15 Government Colleges including the ongoing project in Wakching , which is basically for the Science course hostel. He appealed to the students to change their mind set of destroying government property and take care of the facilities which have been provided by the government and make the best use of this course.
He further urged the faculty, staff and students to generate the resource that is given to them. He promised to continue to help in the coming future for the betterment of the students and teachers.
Invocation was pronounced by pastor Union Baptist Church Kohima Rev. Rachulie Vihienuo. Welcome address was given by Principal SCTE Kohima, H. Sena.
