Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia attended ‘Happiness Class’, in Delhi Government schools as students become teachers.
Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Friday attended a special ‘happiness class’ in Delhi Government schools. Students participated in the event and behaved like teachers. ‘Happiness curriculum’ has created a positive impact on students in their daily lives. Students had a great time especially after a long break due to Covid-19 pandemic.
“Children’s Day is celebrated so the guardians, parents, and teachers can reflect on how they can make this world a better place for our children. It’s especially noteworthy that these happiness classes, which have been happening for two years now, are being conducted in the midst of the Covid-19 crisis, an extremely difficult situation for the students,” Sisodia said.
Students become teachers in Delhi Government schools
“I am happy to know that our students have now become teachers of the happiness curriculum, by engaging their family members, and even their friends, spreading the message of the class in their own unique way,” he added. The class was led by students Gulapsha and Nikhil, studying in BPSKV, Devli, and GCSV, Dwarka, respectively, who first conducted a meditation session.
“This was followed by a storytelling session wherein the students read out situational stories off a presentation, and then opened up the floor for a discussion amongst themselves. It was a reflective session, wherein every student individually took stock of the situation, and how they would react to it,” a Delhi Government official said.
