The teaching & the non-teaching staff of the college have donated RS 200000 to the West Bengal State Emergency to be used in the state government’s fight against the pandemic caused by COVID:19 Virus.
The college was an awardee for this year’s P.C. Chandra Group’s Gyandhara Prokolpo - a Knowledge Centre Initiative by the group . In a colourful program in Kolkata a cheque of Rupees 200000 was handed over to the Principal of the college. The College plans to arrange for an exclusive 'PC Chandra Book Bank’ with the money received.
Zestival: The Intercollegiate Cultural Fest was organized by the College from 25-26 February 2020 with the participation of 318 students from various colleges from Darjeeling and Jalpaiguri Districts. The Fest provided a much needed space to the students to express their creative talents.
Most of us who have been involved in the field of education for the last decades and have witnessed the drastically changing socio - economic background - have felt the deep impact of this changing scenario on educational system of the nation. Having gone Global on economic, political and allied fronts as a nation and thrown open our doors to the winds of change, one could foresee what legacy we were to create for the future inheritors of our country.
Anticipated, the next gen would be global citizens where geographical boundaries would cease to deter belongingness to merely one corner or location and would certainly demand a much wider perspective and a mindset to match from each individual.
We urgently required a system of education where by a state of the art technology would support a much wider array of content from a world perspective that would take the children of today through such strategically planned experiences that were drawn from any part of the world and measured up qualitatively as per world standards to prepare world citizens of tomorrow. It is a challenge.
Class room management too is seeing a revolution of sorts with pedagogical support from IT and allied media. Consideration of the Multiple Intelligences is a key factor in effective teaching- learning practices in scholastic and co scholastic areas today. I have joined as Principal of this institution in the last part of 2016. The institution is named after a great freedom fighter & revolutionist "Surya Sen", nicknamed as "Master Da". As a Principal, for me, education is not learning by rote and then repeating it in the examination. Our approach is student centred and goes beyond text books, class rooms and boundaries. Students develop practical skills, enabling them to apply their learning to unfamiliar situations and think & act critically about different issues confronted in their life. This will prepare them a lifelong success. This edifice and temple of learning will always be a source of never ending inspiration to our young students.
