Guest of Honour Sultana Moidu, a legend in the field of Early Child Education, IPTTA President, Dr Ravi Andrews and Director Sonal Ravi Andrews, were present on the occasion.
Skand Bali said, the challenges ahead of all of you graduating today is immense, the generation you are dealing with doesn’t know what the future has for them, how the future is going unveil for them treat them, the professions they get in we may not even be aware today, the courses that will be available for them we don’t know yet and with technology coming in, the advent of Artificial intelligence, families becoming smaller and smaller, with such complexity ahead you can’t expect any less challenges in your profession. What is important for you to remember is that the age group you are dealing with biologically and scientifically is very active in terms of their growths, emotional growth, mental growth, psychological growth. So it’s very important, apart from teaching alphabets and numeric, the teacher should also develop an aptitude of questioning in them, which is becoming critical and a necessary trait in any profession, by the day.
For the passing out students it is a moment to cherish, while also being an occasion to reminisce the pleasant and wonderful time spent with the classmates and faculty. Each one of these will now go about with their careers, while being able to mould and lay a solid foundation for innocent kids to transform into erudite individuals, as they grow up.For us at IPPTA each passing batch gives tremendous feeling of fulfillment for having empowered women and given them a direction and sense of purpose in their otherwise mundane lives, says an elated Sonal Ravi Andrews.
The audience comprising of the near and dear of passing out candidates, students and guests and teachers from prominent schools in the city, cheered them and made the occasion lively and memorable. As part of the elaborate convocation ceremony,each student marched through the aisle with their mentor to receive the Diploma Certificate.All the passing out candidates are placed and already working in reputed schools like Glendale, Oakridge, Shir Ram Universal School, Gowtham Model School, Chirec, Global Edge, Kalpa, Phoenix Greens, Kangaroo kids, Eurokids, Meridian etc.
Our mission at IPPTA is to develop passionate candidates with active and creative minds, a sense of understanding and compassion for children, and the courage to act on their beliefs. We lay stress on total development of each aspirant: spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, emotional, and behavioral. We want to create a generation of pre-school teachers, who would guide the nation’s future, says Dr Ravi Andrews. My advice to all those passing out today is, the key to success is to have focus and dedication to what you want to accomplish, thats what will take you to the target in your life.
