Stressed ahead of Board Exams Don't worry, we are here: Jammu School Education Counselling Cell to students
3/2/2021 10:59:37 PM
Early Times Report
JAMMU, Mar 2: The Counselling Cell Directorate of School Education Jammu launched a one-month-long massive campaign in which four scientific modules guided learners to lower their anxiety level, enhance memory techniques, the art of exam-taking and writing skills which was corroborated with various advisories, audio-video series, etc.
In order to take up direct queries of the learners with experts, the counselling cell is going to conduct a three-day webinar in the first week of March 2021.
Covid-19 pandemic created widespread and unprecedented social disruption especially among all the stakeholders of School Education.
The situation proved very traumatic for our learners, due to the closure of schools which created learning gaps to a large extent.
The schools re-opened after a gap of almost one year which resulted in anxiety, stress and disorientation of students and announcement of few relaxations by Board authorities thereof by further increasing the anxiety level.
Pertinent to mention here the Tele-counselling helpline of DSEJ, "Aao Baat Karein" provided psychosocial support to many in distress and facing anxiety during-covid and post-covid days. It has dealt with a number of queries related to mental health, stress management, examination related issues etc.
The helpline conducted sessions related to academic mentoring and doubt clearing also.
As part of the month-long campaign, A Mega Parent Teacher Meet on Exam Stress Management and Study Skills was organised (both offline and online) in the summer zone (seven districts) schools (HSS/HS/MS/PS) of Jammu Division where parents were sensitised for handling their wards during stressful examination days.
The event witnessed a large number (2, 50,000) of parents, teachers and students because of the re-opening of schools.
Director School Education Jammu Anuradha Gupta applauded the efforts of Counselling Cell and faculty counsellors for their painstaking efforts in bridging learning gaps and guiding the parents about stress management and study skills.
She said parents in order to reduce stress, should respond by being friendly, by giving a patient hearing, by limiting their expectations, by raising their motivational level and avoiding comparisons of any sort.
"Relaxed mind is more creative and productive," said Romesh Kumar, Head Counselling Cell, DSEJ.
Reducing the anxiety and imparting study skills is as important as preparing them academically, he further added.
Dr Surinder Kumar, Dr Alka Sharma, Preeti Sharma, Shanti Saroop and Manan Mahajan, members of Counselling Cell, DSEJ extended coordination in the smooth and successful conduct of the month-long awareness campaign.
