We had a hectic but really satisfying experience of conducting the Career Awareness seminar at the high school grounds in Simri Bakhtiarpur, Saharsa. The response to the event was so good that it inspires and motivates us to continue to do such events in the near future as well.
The students of Tagore Public School, sang the welcome song for the guests and the event was declared open by the Chief Guest, Shri Mahendra Narayan Prasad, a veteran teacher from the area.
The event started with short speeches by the various invited guests and then the Chief Guest. This was then followed by a talk on alternative career options for students, by Kshitiz Anand.
Ritesh Ranjan, Vice-Chariman of the Zila Parishad, Saharsa remembered his days in the same school where the event was held and spoke about the need for students to think about giving back to the society as well as a career goal.
After the main event, an interactive session with esteemed guests, teachers, members of the Nagar Panchayat, and a few guardians were also held in the hall of the High school Simri Bakhtiarpur. The theme of the discussion was to understand the situation of education in the area currently and also how can the Happy Horizons Trust work towards improving this.
Dr Zakir Hussain of the Project Kanya Girl’s High School, one of the better performing schools in the region was also present and he stressed on the need for more guardians to take interest in the education of the children.
Vatsala, the president of Happy Horizons Trust, delivered the Vote of thanks.
