District Collector turning up at classroom to don the mantle of teacher

Paralakhemundi:30/6/18: Children of Mahendragiri Municipal High School in Paralakhemundi palace town were in for a pleasant surprise with the District Collector turning up at classroom to don the mantle of teacher.

Children were visibly elated as Gajapati collector Anupam Saha paid a surprise visit to the school and began imparting geography lessons to 9th standard students on Friday.

Excitement was writ on their faces as Saha taught them national geography and geographical boundaries of countries bordering the country. Saha was engrossed in the teaching for about half-an-hour and provided tips to excel in geography subjects.

The classroom teaching done by me formed the part of ‘Mo School Abhiyan’ lanched by the State government. Under the novel scheme, we have called upon the academicians to voluntarily teach the students. Students could learn important tips from them which could come in handy for them in examination and future life, Saha said.
