Jalandhar November 16 (Jaswinder Singh Azad)- The student- teachers of Innocent Hearts College of Education, Jalandhar celebrated ‘International Day of Endurance’on the theme given by UNESCO that ‘tolerance is respect, acceptance and appreciation of the diversity of our world’s cultures, our forms of expression and ways of being human’.
On this occasion, a Drama was enacted by the would-be teachers Komal Verma, Kanika Rana, Parmjit Kaur, Tanu Arora, Harleen Kaur, Monika and Chanderkala to spread the message that the quality of being tolerant is very much essential for becoming a good teacher as ‘Teaching without talent, compassion and endurance is like an octopus on skates – there will be movement without direction’ as quoted by K.B. Ghosh. By depicting different scenes of classroom situations the student-teachers highlighted that endurance is not just the ability to bear a difficult thing, but to turn it into glory.
Principal Dr. Arjinder Singh appreciated the team work and explained to the student-teachers that being tolerant removes one’s self-imposed barriers by allowing one to think more broadly and enjoy greater inner peace.All the student-teachers learnt that Tolerance is an amazing tool that can help to make the classroom environment democratic and lively in which all can contribute together harmoniously and peacefully.
