DATE                                  :                       30 DECEMBER 2017
VENUE                               :                       ITL PUBLIC SCHOOL
ORGANISED BY                :                       ITL PUBLIC SCHOOL
CONDUCTED BY               :                       MS. SUDHA ACHARYA
ATTENDED BY                  :                       STUDENTS & PARENTS OF CLASS X

 

 “Even if things don't unfold the way you expected, don't be disheartened or give up. One who continues to advance will win in the end.” 

Exploring career options is an important step on the road to adulthood. The subject stream that students take in high school affect the choices they have when applying for college, which in turn affects the career, they embark on. Having an idea of where they want to be in the next five to ten years will get them started in the right direction and the mentors play a pivotal role in the students’ life as their career partners.

 In order to facilitate students of Class X and their parents to take a well informed decision at this crucial juncture of life, the school organized an Orientation Programme for Stream Selection in Class XI on 30 December 2017. The very dynamic and sagacious school Principal, Ms. Sudha Acharya conducted the expert session and gave valuable guidance to students and parents alike. Highlighting the upcoming career avenues in Entrepreunership, Actuarial Sciences & Geo Spatial Sciences, she implored them to make good choices today so that they don’t have to regret tomorrow. Advising the parents to refrain from the little emperor syndrome, she also emphasized on the brand value of Delhi University.

Two of the many prudent advices given by her were to “unite their avocation with their vocation” in the pursuit of happiness and to choose ‘THE ROAD NOT TAKEN’ and opt for the unconventional subject combinations offered by the school so that there is a scope to diversify later in life.

Parents also seemed to have done an extensive research on the subject and queried Principal Ms. Acharya about the scope of various subject combinations. The anxiety of parents and students was quite understandable. After all students are the CEO of their lives and they need to develop life strategies for long-term and short-term goals to excel in life.

Here’s wishing them good luck for their future endeavours!

Destiny is not a matter of chance; it is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for; it is a thing to be achieved.” 

Exploring career options is an important step on the road to adulthood.

She implored them to make good choices today so that they don’t have to regret tomorrow.

Two of the many prudent advices given by herwere to unite their avocation with their vocation because it is linked to the pursuit of happiness and to opt for the unconventional subject combinations on offer in the school so that there is a scope to diversify later in life.

Parents also seemed to have done an extensive research on the subject and queried Principal Ms. Acharya about the scope of various subject combinations. They also expressed their desire to attend a Career Counseling Session by experts from Universities of repute, focusing on unconventional courses and the Armed Forces.They were given an assurance that it would be conducted very soon.
