FOUR-DAY ADOLESCENCE Education Training Programme (AETP) for teachers and students concluded at Sarojini Naidu School, Tulsi Nagar on Friday. The School Adolescence Education Programme, as it is popularly known, is originally developed by UNICEF and UNESCO.

Chief guest at the closing session DPI Assistant Director and State Nodal Officer P R Tiwari highlighting the significance of the programme said, “The objective of the Adolescence Education Training Programme (AETP) is to provide 100 per cent quality coverage for all senior schools in the state so that students in grades IX–XI have adequate and accurate knowledge about HIV in the context of life-skills.”

St Paul Co-Ed S S schoolteacher Rachna Shrivastava said the main objective behind the programme is to give recognition and appreciation to teachers implementing the Programme effectively.

“The schoolchildren will be educated about proper growth process, personal hygiene and HIV, AIDS and drug abuse,” schoolteacher Manoj Lukoosse of St Joseph’s Co-Ed said.

Tarvinder Maan of St Paul S S School said the Programme was educative and informative. Yogendra Deshpande from St Xavier’s S S School said the Programme was detailed in an effective manner. Programme coordinator Dhirendra Singh Tomar informed the participants on the need to work on its implementation at a faster pace as the Programme in Madhya Pradesh is still in its preliminary stage and is behind schedule in comparison to other states.

The unique feature of the workshop was that each session started with an interesting game. More than 20 schools of the City participated in the four-day workshop, which included Carmel Convent S S School, Ratanpur, Maharishi Vidya Mandir and Sharda Vidya Mandir.
