Panchkula’s District Institute of Education and Training (DIET) has organized a two-week training program to train the directors of the newly promoted government schools in leadership, innovation and team building, which concluded on Wednesday.
The training organized for the directors of government schools in Panchkula, Ambala and Yamunanagar included special sessions on service rules, non-violent communication, school and community, innovation in schools, teacher issues and mentoring and monitoring. The interns were also taken to some Morni Hills schools to give them some hands-on experience.
Education Minister Kanwar Pal was the main guest at the closing ceremony on Wednesday. In his short speech to the trainees, the minister said that they should focus more on students from rural areas and the underprivileged layers of society.
The minister said that the teachers serving in Haryana are some of the most skilled staff and if they get good leaders to guide, the parents would prefer to send their students to government schools rather than private schools.
