Pune : Recently Global Indian International School which is to be rechristened as the Elpro International School next academic year held a two-day workshop ‘Awakened Citizenship Program’ - which is based on the foundation ideals of Swami Vivekananda with a aim to enrich young students with quality values.

The dignitaries Harish Adhyani, Geeta Adhyani, Sunanda Ganguly, Shobha Menon and Satarupa Dutta graced the Awakened Citizenship Program.
It was attended by more than 160 teachers from more than 60 schools across Maharashtra. The objective of the workshop was based on the message that each one of us carries within an infinite source of power, strength and goodness.The ‘Awakened Citizenship Program’ was launched by Ramakrishna Mission in the year 2014.

Harish Adhyani stated that Atmashraddha is the underlying principle to awaken several possibilities that are open to humans. He added, saying ‘I can’ repeatedly has the potential to make everything possible. The workshop introduced teachers to this program which would make them help students discover and manifest power within them. Ideally a 3-year program, but the focus of the workshop was primarily on the 1st year for 7th graders.

Dr. Amrit Vohra, Principal, GIIS added “We were glad to host the Awakened Citizenship Program Workshop for our fellow teachers across. Teachers are the role models & a guiding light for every student. Teachers should be able to not just teach but help students discover themselves & their true potential whilst providing them with essential life tools. This program will help teachers become the torch-bearers for the society at large.”

Satarupa Dutta introduced the curriculum of the program to the teachers for grade 7 highlighting the 16 sessions incorporated into the program.
Along with inculcating values, ‘Awakened Citizen Programme’ aims at equipping students with soft skills, character-building techniques and other life tools. It was an engaging workshop for the teachers where they got briefed on the class plans and knowledge structure for each class. It is truly a unique value education program for students to manifest moral values in them.
