Training Workshop by Ms. Zehra Kamal Alam
Teaching training is an integral part of the educational development. With the same spirit, the administration at LCGG is keen to look for opportunities where professional skills of teachers could be improved.
One such workshop has been conducted by Ms. Zehra Kamal Alam. Ms. Zehra is a seasoned clinical psychologist. She has done masters in clinical psychologist from the University of Karachi and masters in Psychology of Education from the University of Columbia USA. She has also specialized in global mental health and trauma. She has been working on mental health and violence and rights issues for the past twenty two years. She is currently having her private practice where she treats clients and offer services to school systems and various NGOs.
The workshop aimed at discussing different issues regarding the emotional health of students and devising plans to resolve such issues. The sessions were attended by housemasters/housemistresses, AHMs and other faculty members. The problems were highlighted and measures to handle such issues were also discussed. Ms. Zehra Kamal conducted these sessions in an extremely efficient manner where everyone could discuss the problems openly and Ms. Zehra came up with pertinent measures to handle different situations regarding mental and emotional health of students.
All the faculty members found the sessions very useful which gave them knowledge and awareness regarding certain issues. The Principal and faculty thanked Ms. Zehra Kamal Alam for sparing time from her busy schedule and organizing such wonderful training programme.
Workshop on Cyber Safety
Cyber safety is a very sensitive issue and it’s the need of the hour to sensitize our young generation about the significance of digital safety and adopting appropriate online behaviours.
Keeping these objectives in mind, LCGG collaborated with ITA to conduct the orientation sessions for our young learners.
A team of three trainers shared their experience about cyber safety, guided the students about threats of the digital world today and how to be resilient as well as cyber safe on 30th of June, 2021. Children enjoyed the discussion thoroughly and resolved to be digitally more literate. They played online game to assess their own learning about cyber safety.
We at LCGG are extremely thankful to (ITA &Telenor) for providing this much needed learning opportunity for the mutual benefit of students and teachers on campus.
