Staff Reporter,

RAJYA Shiksha Kendra (RSK) has instructed schools to hold first period of primary classes, including class 1 and 2, with interesting stories as reading session. This will help students improve their reading skills at an early age. Notably, under Kahani Utsav, great initiatives are being taken in the State to create happy and learning environment for students.
Since past three years, School Education Department is conducting ‘Kahani Utsava’ competition for students of primary and middle classes at various levels.

The competition has been conducted at school level, cluster level, block level, district level and state level. This year also the programme was held in an excellent manner, where 51 students who stood at first position in Kahani Utsav were awarded with prizes and 51 teachers also participated in the programme and first top three were awarded. On the occasion, students and teachers presented their stories in an effective way. In State-level Kahani Utsav programme, first prize was bagged by Ragini Yadav from Government Girls Middle School, Katni. In teacher’s category, Vimalvani Dubey from Government Boys Middle School, Mandsaur, was awarded first prize.

Entire first, second and third prize winners of the competition were awarded by School Education Department Secretary Deepti Gaur Mukherjee and Rajya Shiksha Kendra Director Irin Sinthiya.  Rajya Shiksha Kendra is motivating students and teachers to showcase their excellent skills.

The Kendra encouraged participation of students and teachers by presenting them participation certificates, trophy, blazer, track suit, T-shirt and caps. Participants were also taken on a visit to Shaurya Smarak and Regional Science Centre. From now, as per instructions, first period for class 1 and 2 will be taken as reading session.
