Swadhin Yatra : The Festival of Skills!
Updated: Mar 19, 2022
Learning life skills helps young people understand who they are and what they want out of life. Other than the regular school curriculum, students should also learn to be innovative and solve real time problems.
Along with basic school education, we also impart skill training sessions. This is integrated in curriculum to enhance practical knowledge of students in the age group of 14-18 years. Aiming at this, we organized "Swadheen Yatra : The Festival of Skills" at our Vidyalaya on 3rd March, 2022, wherein students actively participated and made items from waste.
Chief guests for program were Shri Jagadish Shekhar Naik, CEO, Gram Vikas Society, Dharwad and Co-founder & CEO, TalenTree India, Bengaluru, Shri Ashvin bhusare, social entrepreneur, Dharwad, Shri Pradeep Alurkar, Secretary Panchkroshi Vidyalaya, Amrut Kulkarni, Director. Knowledge Partner for the event was LAHI. Shri. Jagdish Naik and Shri. Ashvin took all efforts to cherish our students by acknowledging their efforts, and purchased material made by students.
Students sold electric extension boxes, batteries, food items like pani puri, farming equipments, mukhwaas and cocopeat etc. Students learnt production, packaging, interacted with customers and selling. It was a wholesome experience for them. The day ended with loads of practical lessons for them.
