A five-day long sports and literary event was held at Worshon English School, Chingjaroi CV, Ukhrul.
The 33rd Worshon English School, Chingjaroi CV sports week cum literary meet was kicked off by engineer CPWD, Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, Wungpam Raikhan on Monday.
At the five-day long sports and literary event, Wungpam Raikhan said, “If you have goals, it will make you want to study more. Even doing homework will become more engaging and less burdensome. If you have any doubts, do not hesitate to clear your doubts”.
He said that Worshon school students are privileged to have a capable and dedicated principal and teaching staff. “Our system of education tends towards producing BA or MA without knowing where the degree would lead,'' he stressed and pointed out that certain changes are needed in the present education system.
“Do not study to get a government job. Let us strive to engage in other creative pursuits where one can thrive and ensure self-sufficiency and sustain one's life without depending on others,” he said.
Raikhan handed out financial token to WES teachers, pre-school teachers and event organisers.
Chingjaroi has three schools including WES, pre-school and Eastern Christian High School which was recently selected for school Fagathansi mission.
