Mumbai School Principals Come Together to Discuss the Issue of Emotional Wellbeing Among Students
The event will host over 150 school principals from across Mumbai, New Mumbai and Kalyan alongside well-known educationalists and child psychiatrists. There will be an elite panelist of veterans from the education sector who will deliberate on the theme for the discussion. The discussion will also dwell on how schools can adopt technology to identify and tackle this menace among the student community and create an amicable environment for emotional wellbeing and bridge the communication gap between the school and parents.
Talking about this initiative, Mr. Anurag Dixit, Vice President, Teno App, said, “A child spends most of the active time of the day in school and hence it is imperative that schools have the right environment and infrastructure to accentuate the overall growth and well being of the child. We often read about heart-wrenching incidents of self-harm among students due to depression and it is critical that we have a forum to discuss the ways to mitigate the perils of this illness. We work with schools across the country offering an easy and efficient mobile App to facilitate communication between parents and schools. This helps us leverage our connect to create a platform for like-minded educational experts to discuss pertinent issues among school children.”
It is always better to pre-empt circumstances rather than waiting to take curative measures once an unfortunate incident occurs. Children nowadays are influenced, not only by peers but also face cyber pressure, which often misleads them to feel inferior. This is one of the key reasons that leads to emotional trauma and disrupts their mental wellbeing, causing them to resort to unhealthy measures. It is difficult to wean away a child from technology and modern day lifestyle habits but one can mitigate the risk of the child suffering mental stress, by ensuring timely intervention and conversations. It is important for schools and parents to shift conversations beyond functional PTA meetings or report days, and be more accessible to each other, despite the hectic urban lifestyle. Use of school apps like Teno App helps achieve this objective without any hassle
The session will elucidate on various tools and best practices that schools can employ to accentuate the mental wellbeing of students. The event is scheduled for June 18, 2017 at Courtyard Marriott, Andheri East, Mumbai and schools interested to participate in the event can reach out to the team on –
