Adolescence Education Programme

Nerul, Nov 16, 2021: To help students acquire authentic knowledge about adolescent problems and to inculcate in them the essential life skills, a workshop on ‘Life Skills’ was conducted by Vice-Principal, Ms Namita Anand, on 16th November 2021.

Adolescence is a very shaky bridge from childhood to adulthood where students face various challenges. and this is the time they need to be equipped with life skills. Life skills in relation to everyday life form the foundation for promoting physical, social, and mental well-being, healthy interaction, and positive behaviour among individuals. It enables them to make informed decisions by developing in them proper perceptions of self-efficacy, self-confidence, and self-esteem. The program was all about adolescent challenges and the various life skills required to overcome them. Ms Namita Anand explained about different aspects of health like physical, social, mental, spiritual, and emotional. Our good deeds are our spiritual health and that they add up to our personal spiritual quota. Mental health includes the working of our heart- the goodness and selflessness of our intentions. Adolescents living in a competitive world tend to get stressed, they need to accept who they are, be aware of the changes, and not put themselves or others down. They were apprised about the ways to manage and overcome emotional changes.

The most important thing that they were made to understand was that we should never be afraid of our physical changes and the way we look because one is considered attractive by his/her deeds and values.
