A WORKSHOP on ‘Teaching Methodology’ was held at AWWA Nursery School, SI Lines Bhopal on September 8. The orientation programme was chaired by Sudarshan Chakra AWWA president Annie Panag and attended by all staff members of AWWA Nursery School, Bhopal and Army Preparatory School, Bairagarh.
The workshop aimed to nurture self-growth of teachers. Annie Panag stressed on the importance of interaction within both schools so that they could learn from each other and imbibe positive traits for their growth as teachers. She also stressed on the importance of self-assessment so that teachers could delve on their respective strengths, which can be used as a tool in their teaching process.
During the workshop it clearly emerged that it was important for a teacher to keep contemplating and introspecting. It was understood that to inculcate security in the mind of a child the use of reward in learning was important and punishment should be discarded at all costs.
Annie Panag also dwelt on the strength of being positive. Some other aspects which were also discussed during the workshop were the importance of play way method, maximum use of teaching aids and that the teacher should not see one’s job as a burden but should nurture it with love and dedication. At the end of the workshop Annie Panag honoured teachers by giving gifts as mementos.
Indian Air Force recruitment rally
THE INDIAN Air Force in its endeavour to induct more and more youths from Madhya Pradesh has recently opened an Airmen Selection Centre at 35, Rajiv Gandhi Parisar, Shamala Hills, Bhopal.
It was observed that despite having ample recruit able population in Madhya Pradesh, its representation in the Airmen Cadre had not been as much as compared to the other neighbouring states.
It was found that youths of Madhya Pradesh had very little awareness about a career in Indian Air force especially as airmen. Even those youths who had some knowledge about IAF were reluctant to go up to Delhi, Mumbai or Kanpur to appear in examinations.
Government of Madhya Pradesh also extended its full cooperation by providing basic infrastructure and other administrative support for the smooth functioning of the Centre at Bhopal. In the last two months IAF has successfully conducted two schedule testing for its Non-Technical and Technical trades at Bhopal.
The response has so far been very good. Airmen Selection Centre, Bhopal is taking all possible action to reach out to far-flung areas of the State. In the coming months IAF is planning to conduct a recruitment rally in the month of October 06 at Bhopal.
Aspirants who are Class X pass with 50 per cent marks and have a good physique and stamina can opt to become commando in the Air Force by proving their fitness at Lal Parade Ground, Bhopal in October 2006.
Candidates who are Class XII pass with biology can become medical assistants by passing the test in the planned rally in October 2006 at Bhopal. Complete details for Bhopal rally will be published in all local newspapers and Employment News.

EGYPTIANS ESTABLISHED the first military decoration known to history: The Gold of Valour. The Gold of Valour was awarded by the Pharaoh to military leaders who distinguished themselves in battle. Although generals might be represented in stone carvings commemorating battles meant to preserve the event for all time, the Gold of Valour was an honour that could be worn to show his peers and other Egyptians his proven worth in combat. As such, it was a predecessor to modern medals, dating back to at least 1400 BCE.
The Gold of Valour was a necklace, with three pendants in the shape of flies. The award was made up of about a half-pound of gold; making it one of the most valuable military decorations as well as the most ancient. It must be remembered that at this time warfare was still relatively primitive. Good leadership meant leading from the front, even if you were an
