    Workshop on Upholding Ethics and Integrity (Capacity Building Programme)

    “Keep integrity and your work ethic intact. So what if that means working a little harder; an honorable character is your best calling card, and that’s something anyone can have!”
    In today’s scenario, where everyone is running after success, becoming materialistic and is equipped with all sorts of luxuries, it is realized that our culture and ethics is being left behind. We, the Arwachinians strive hard to imbibe the values we have learnt, in our students. Day to day, the teachers are updated with the modern techniques and strategies to help the students groom into chivalrous citizens of India. Mrs. Prabhjyot Kaur and Mrs. Shivani Sharma attended a two days’ workshop on ‘Upholding Ethics and Integrity’ (Capacity building Programme) conducted by the CBSE on 3rd & 31st Aug’19.
     The resource person, Mrs. Neera Kohli, an innovative and forward thinking Senior Educator and Administrator with over 33 years of experience of teaching, commenced the workshop with an Ice Breaking activity. She conducted various activities that would definitely be helpful in strengthening the bond between the students and the teachers. The Kohelberg’s Theory of ‘Stages of Moral Development’ was used to explain how the people falling in different age groups can be taught to be ethical. A few games were also a part of the workshop, leading to the conclusion where the participants had to reflect upon the strategies they used in the classrooms for imbibing values and ethics in their students. The workshop was concluded with the ‘Feedback and Open House Session’ wherein each and every teacher spoke of his /her takeaways of the workshop. The workshop played a very important role in making the teachers understand the essence of it, which was…..
    “If you don’t have integrity, you have nothing. You can’t buy it.
    You can have all the money in the world,
    But if you are not a moral and ethical person,
    you really have nothing.”

                                          As a part of ISA project, the students of classes 3 and 4 were taken to an educational visit to Waste to Wonder, Delhi on 3rd August, 2019. It’s an initiative by the government of Delhi to curb the issue of solid waste management in the capital; the theme park has creatively used 150 tonnes of metal scrap and transformed it into replicas of the Seven Wonders of the World.

                                          This innovative approach to combat the problem of waste management overwhelmed the children and made them understand the purpose of the visit along with the responsibility the youth has towards conserving the environment.
