Srinagar, Jun 12 (Only Kashmir): The Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti on Monday handed over regularisation orders among six hundred Rehbar e Taleem teachers during a function at SKICC was attended by a well attended gathering of teachers.
Terming the teachers as role models for the society, Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti today said they (teachers) have a greater role to play, particularly in present times, in shaping the destiny of their students.
Addressing a well attended gathering of teachers after handing over regularisation orders among six hundred Rehbar e Taleem teachers here today, the Chief Minister said teaching profession has been held in high esteem by all religions and societies. She said teachers have an immense influence on the lives of their students, sometimes greater than that of their parents. “In the present times when the working parents have little time for their children, teachers also need to don the role of parents and provide them all the requisite emotional cushion which they are in need of”, the Chief Minister remarked.
Regretting that the students of present times have little to rejoice and entertain, Mehbooba Mufti asked the teachers to create avenues of extracurricular activities at schools like varied types of arts, sports, physical activities, picnics etc and let the students explore the universe on their own and move beyond the realms of exams, tests, classes and grades. “Our kids are living in an atmosphere of strain, who have very little to cheer about. It is the teachers who have to steer them out successfully by supervising a complete personality development in them”, she said.
The Chief Minister hoped the teachers regularized today would infuse new blood in the working of the Education Department. She said Government is sensitive to the demands and needs of teaching community and their resolution is accordingly prioritized.
On the occasion, the Chief Minister also released the latest issue of bi monthly news letter of the Directorate of School Education and curriculum for elementary education.
