Rokhsar Afroz gives insights on the happenings of the cluster meetings that take place on a regular basis to discuss and present the viewpoints of the stakeholders in the Edu-leader community. The latest meeting occurred on 25th October in Government Middle School, Chaugai. The meeting kicked off at 10.30 in the morning with Ms. Sujata joined in as the Buddy of the meet. Roshkar was extremely happy to see a new face join in as the buddy, as a means to introduce them to the foundations of the activities so as to get them accustomed to the agenda. To introduce Zen environment and maximize productivity the meet started off with a meditation which while difficult to follow through for over five minutes gave a boost to the overall morale. Then there was a song rendition of Taar Ki Gaon Mein, Chanda Ki Chhaon Mein. The three main areas of focus that were carried forward from the previous meeting were the achievements, challenges ahead and the good that was being achieved every day. Short and long-term goals were discussed, and it was decided to curb underage drinking among the school students of the village by taking mitigation steps for the month of November.
The Action plan to achieve this included- Having open communication channels with the children to address their problems as well as get to the root cause of their indulgence in the activity. Discussing the topic of Alcoholism in Assembly to make them aware of the health risks associated as well as understand the parent involvement through dialogue with the student’s guardian.
The meeting ended with a fun game of Tiger, Wall and Gun which is very similar to Stone, Paper and Scissor with the victor claiming the highest score.
