Former Chairman of Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), Ashok Ganguly, said that a school leader never stops learning to improve his skills and also to improve his knowledge in the field. He said school leaders today must lead from the front and must have the ability to influence and inspire people.
Ganguly expressed these views during an interactive workshop held in Lucknow on Saturday. It was organized by Edudevs, an organization involved in skills-based development of young educators, in collaboration with Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham (AVV) or Amrita University, a reputable private university based in Coimbatore, which visited some major cities to begin an interaction within the educational community on leadership.
“Today’s school leaders must accept this challenge and prepare our students accordingly and appropriately so that they can seize most of the opportunities that globalization creates for them,” Ganguly said.
During the event, principals and headteachers from all Lucknow institutions engaged with each other in a creative workshop called “EduEvolve, Lucknow”. Br. Maheshwara Chaitanya, Director of Admissions, AVV, chaired the event. Additional Director General, Special Task Force, Amitabh Yash was the chief guest on the occasion.
The event was inaugurated by Fr. Maheshwara Chaitanya and Devyani Kapoor, leader and founder of Edudevs. The program ended with an awards ceremony with titles like “Impactful Edupreneur” awarded to Rajiv Tuli, Director of the Modern Institutions Group. The “Hall of Fame” award was given to CMS Founding Director, Jagdish and Bharti Gandhi, while the award for Exemplary Contribution to Education was given to Manjit Batra, among others.
