It was now the turn for the parents to share their experiences and suggestions with respect to their ward. Three parents shared their experiences:

  • Sri Rotom Tuluk, Hostel Warden of Private Hostel: He gave the report of all the hostellers of his hostel. He reported their performance in the Periodic Test II and requested the other parents to come to the school and hostel to enquire about the progress from time to time. He further added that the performance of Classes I – V is better than that of Classes VI – VIII. He also praised the committed work of the school authority in trying to improve the academic performance of the students.

He thanked the school for conducting this parents meeting.
  • Sri Loyom Taba, F/O Kr. Yomnu Taba, V: Being a teacher himself of a Govt. Primary School, he explained in detail about the new State Board Exam for Classes V and VIII and asked the parents to pay special attention to their wards as less than a month is remaining for the exam. Praising the efforts of VKV Raga in this aspect, he said that the school authority is going in the right direction, as he has observed. He request the school authority to conduct re – exam for those students who do not qualify in the final examination. But, he said, some parents are unaware of the new system and later complain to the school. He further requested all parents to be in touch with the school and must come to such parents meeting whenever called.

She encouraged the present children to work hard and ask their doubts to the teachers so that a better outcome is obtained. Only then, they can give happiness to their parents as well as to the school staff. 

Finally, Principal Sri Trilochan Goutam addressed the parents and responded to their queries. He stressed the following points:

  • Remedial coaching in Maths would be started from the next day for Classes V and VIII. All parents were requested to send their children to these classes.

VKVs are known in the country for their man – making and nation – building education. A variety of programmes, academic and non – academic form the core of educational structure of the Vidyalayas. One of the most important celebrations of the schools is the Samartha Bharat Parva that culminates with Swami Vivekananda Jayanti.

VKV Raga celebrated the event in a magnetic way. Following are the details of these celebrations:

  1. Samarth Bharat Parva: The Parva started from 25th Dec 2019. Though it was a holiday, all the teaching staff along with family members, organised a flowers offering programme on the feet of Bharat Mata. Then after evening prayer, a Swadhyay was conducted for the teaching staff on the topic “Contribution of India to the World” by the Principal Sri Trilochan Goutam. Some of the points discussed in the Swadhyay are the following contributions of India to the World:
  • Concept of Zero to mathematical calculations.
  • Ayurveda and Yoga.
  • The first University of the world: Takshashila Viswavidyalaya
  • The games of Chess and Snakes and Ladders etc.
  • Formulae and identities of Trigonometry.

Then, from the next day onwards, that is 26th Dec, 2019 the students of classes VI – VIII presented seminars on the various topics related to India’s contribution to the world. The seminar presentation was House wise. So a total of 8 papers were presented in the morning assembly. Besides this, the students of classes IV – V presented poem recitation in the assembly. The poems were all written by Indian poets only. And, in this celebration, the teachers too participated. They spoke on the topics like Contributions of Eminent Personalities such as Freedom Fighter, Scientists, social activists etc. The 18 – days long celebration of the Parva was very fruitful and full of wisdom. The celebration culminated with Swami Vivekananda Jayanti on 12 Jan 2020.

  1. Swami Vivekananda Jayanti cum National Youth Day: Swami Vivekananda Jayanti was celebrated in an even more enthusiastic and befitting way by the school. Week long preparations were carried out to make the celebration perfect. A total of two special programmes were conducted:
  • General Exhibition: As suggested by Sri S. Muralidharan Sir, we conducted a General Exhibition on various topics like English, Hindi, Sanskrit, Mathematics, Science, Social Science, Games and Sports, Disaster Management, etc. The models and charts were prepared by the students of classes IV – VIII. It was very attractive for the parents and the Chief Guest. They were very happy to see it and praised the works of our students.
  • Talent Show: After the general exhibition was over, a talent show was presented by the tiny kids of Classes I – III. The talent show started with the welcome song, “ Desh Hame Deta Hai Sab Kuchh, Hum Bhi To kuchh Dena Sikhen...” and concluded with the Bharat Mata Arati. The show was very much liked by the parents as their small kids acted in Ganesha Dance, Fancy Dress Display, Mime, Rhymes, Action Songs, Local Traditional Dance, GK Presentation, etc.  The talent show went on for more than 2 hours but the parents and well wishers were not contented. They wished that more and more such programmes by kids should be conducted frequently by the school.

The celebration was very successful and encouraging to our children. The Chief Guest was Sri C. Chukhu, APCS, Additional Deputy Commissioner, Kamle District. He was very happy to be a part of the celebration as he joined office on Dec. 2 2019. In his short speech, he exhorted the children to go for more and more such activities. Quoting Swamiji’s thought, ‘Each soul is potentially divine,’ he said that the work of teachers and parents is to create such environment so that they can manifest this divinity.  He also related some incidents from his student life and told how he faced obstacles in getting good education during those days when good schools and colleges were not available at that time. Praising the work of VKVs in the state, he advised the parents to extend full support and cooperation to the school in times of need. Not only that, he expressed unhappiness at the way Raga public keep the town and its surroundings. He said that the Town area is dirty and needs to be cleaned by the residents from time to time. He also interacted with the teaching staff and said that whatever help the school needs from the administration, he would be happy to render.
