Prachodaya Shibir Conducted - VKV Tafrogam

The Prachodaya Shibir was conducted for the class IX and X students of our Vidyalaya on the 6th of August 2019, in our school. It was a one day programme.

As soon as we got the message, we sorted out the date from our busy schedule as each day of the month was planned with a bundle of programmes inside and outside.

But we found out this day and a committee was formed with Sri.Madhu Bal as the co-ordinator and Su.Kanchan Yadav as the organiser. A routine for this was finalised after discussing with the concerned teachers. Then the next move was to rope in eminent guests to speak on the occasion. Our search ended with finding out Dr.D.W.Thongan, (S.P.Lohit District, who is also an alumnus of VKV Shergaon and Balijan). The next one was Smt. Sailu Bellai, the next door figure of VKV Tafrogam.  Sri.Ashok Atale of VK Lohit Vibhag also joined us.

On the stipulated day, the programme began with the wake up at 4.45 am. After ablutions the students came to the school assembly hall, which was the venue. There the prayer was the first event. It was followed by the yoga session taken by Su.Rumi, our PT Teacher. Then the students were divided into four groups viz. “Shakti, Sharada, Syamala and Sarala”. All the 43 students from class IX and 30 from class X were present. Thus 73 were the number of participants of the shibir. Once the grouping was over the students were giver clear instructions on the do and don’ts and duties were also assigned to the groups. Selection of group leaders was also done. Then he students dispersed for fresh up and breakfast.

After breakfast the shibir participants assembled and the shibir geet ‘Le Chale’ was taken by Smt.Kashmiri Kotoky. In a short period of time the song got registered in the hearts of the students.

Session I was on the Importance of Education. It was taken by Sri.P.K.Pandey Sir, our cluster in charge.The various aspects of education and the qualities of students were dealt in detail. Then the students dispersed for a short break and again assembled for the inaugural session. Dr.D.W.Thongan, S.P.Lohit district was the Chief Guest. He is an alumnus of VKV Shergaon and Balijan. He inspired the students on the topic ‘Focussed Learning’. He invoked the interest of the students and said about the various openings in higher education and about the systematic steps to achieve it. The participants paid keen attention by lending their mind body and soul in gaining the practical wisdom from this right person. He also discussed about the various competitive exams right from NEET to UPSC. It was really a wonderful and highly enlightening session. We all felt like getting a fabulous garden on asking a simple flower.

This was followed by a session by our teacher Sri.P.Shanmughan on career guidance. He capitalised the inputs of the capacity building programme which he recently participated in a workshop at VKV Kharsang. The programme was organised by CBSE. Here the participants got sufficient idea about the subject.

After this session and after a short break again the participants assembled for shibir geet. Once it was over, the participants were given an assignment of group discussion. Each group was given the task of group discussion on selected books. It was told them to go through the books and present the essence of it to the audience in the post lunch session. Thus the following books were taken for discussion.

 By this time Sri.Ashok Atale, VK Sanghatak, Lohit Vibhag was, and his team was ready for Kendra Varga. The “Ka , Kha , Ga’ concept of the Kendra Varga was liked by all.

She narrated the success stories of successful persons         from this area.
