REPORT OF WORKSHOP ON STREAM SELECTION
Decisions are the toughest thing to make especially when it is a choice between where one should be and where one aspires to be. K.R. Mangalam World School, G.K. II remains committed in helping every learner trudge their own path into the threshold of the future. In pursuit of the same, the school organized a workshop on Stream Selection and Career Counseling for the students and parents of Class X, on December 8, 2018. The workshop was conducted by Smriti Dhingra, Tanya Sharma and Saheba Priyadarshni, experts from Cogito Hub Career Testing Platform which empowers Students & Young Professionals. They emphasized on the fact that education is just not the harbinger for sustenance but it is also about pursuing the true essence of one’s life.
The motto of the workshop was to help the students make informed decision. The session covered various facets of career choice and its determining factors such as aptitude and interest, availability of opportunity and inherent potential. Urging the students to believe in their strengths and follow their passion, the resource people also threw light on the various skills required for pursuing a particular career, and how a combination of such skills is essential for success in a field. Further the students were introduced to the various career paths available under the categories Humanities, Science, Commerce, Vocational Skills and new careers based on competitive exams. The principal Dr. Sangeeta Arora also apprised the parents about the subjects offered by the school and answered queries posed by the parents. It was indeed an enriching experience, particularly to those who were still indecisive in deciding their streams and careers.
