Jamshedpur, Dec. 21: Students of the Kadma-based DBMS English School got an opportunity to meet and share their views with the chief minister Raghubar Das , the occasion was the golden jubilee celebration of that school which kicked off today.
Das said that Jharkhand is keen in introducing skill-based education and not just textbook learning to make children job oriented. The government is working on plans to introduce skill-based education to increase employability of students.
Das who was the chief guest at the golden jubilee celebration of DBMS English School said that skilled Jharkhand is the need of the hour. Government is also working to provide basic amenities in government schools.
Appreciating the efforts of the Dakshin Bharat Mahila Samaj (DBMS), the trust that runs the DBMS English School, the Chief Minister said that the state government too is trying its best to improve the standard of education in government schools.
He went on to add that the objective with which DBMS started the school in 1965 has fulfilled its purpose. Social and educational organisations like this have always contributed in nation building by spreading light of education.
The state government too is trying its best to provide basic facilities and infrastructure in schools. We have already started recruiting teachers which will very soon improve the gap of teacher-student ratio. Schools in Jamshedpur have always set examples and the state government too is trying to improve because every child deserves quality education.
As part of the celebrations an interaction session followed between the alumni members and students of classes X, XI and XII.
Prior to the session, the school formally introduced about 20 alumni members with the students.
An alumnus Vineet R.Bhatt shared his experience on his completion of engineering and then a dilpoma from XLRI. Finally he turned into an author of a book called ‘The Rare View Mirror’.
On day two will warm up the nostalgia as former students and teachers will be honoured. The school will grant 20 former students, nominated by other alumni, the Distinguished Alumnus Award for the first time. A 20-minute documentary on the school made by alumnus Tathagata Bhattacharjee, will be screened.
On the last day, former school management members will be feted and the current batch of students will present a musical drama on the school.
“We are happy to see the overwhelming response. The school was born with seven nursery students in 1965. Today, it is among the topmost city schools, a great way to celebrate 50 years,” said Rajani Shekhar, principal.
