Gajapati Collector turns Geography teacher for a day in Odisha

Gajapati: It was unique experience for students of Mahendragiri Municipal High School in Paralakhemundi as they got some education tips from district collector who had turned a teacher for day.

Gajapati collector Anupam Saha was seen taking Geography class for standard IX students of the school on Friday. Finding the collector at their school, the students were also excited to learn a chapter from the government official.

“Anybody can come forward to lend a helping hand for such noble cause. Under the banner of ‘Mo School Abhiyan’, we have started an initiative called ‘Teach Gajapati’. Under this initiative, anyone who is passionate to impart voluntary education as per their interests and qualification can come and teach some chapters on the basis of requirements,” said Saha after the class.

It is pertinent to mention that the programme was a part of the ongoing campaign to inspire people who want to contribute a part of their time for voluntary teaching in the State.

“I took Geography class and students here are really good and responded well. It is a very positive sign. We have good quality students and with some quality grooming and encouragement they will certainly perform well,” the Collector said.
