The Workshop was extremely technical and informative. Fr Ajoy with his years of experience of clinical Psychology made the workshop simple and fun yet at the same time practical for the teachers. The workshop was attended by forty two teachers and three brothers. In this workshop Fr. Ajoy highlighted some of the academic problems of students such as: Slow learners, Learning disability, Sensory processing disorder and Attention deficit/attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
Fr. Glen in his workshop stressed on the issue of suicide and highlighted the various causes that lead the youngsters to commit suicide. As educators of the young, it is our duty to understand the students and listen to them. This workshop was an encouragement for all the teachers to understand the students, believe in them and love them. It is right that life is more than an exam but by understanding the students and accompanying them in their problems we can make a difference in their lives.
As educators of the young let us give a listening ear to the child’s plea:
“Don’t just teach me…. reach me!”
“If I can’t learn the way you teach, teach me the way I learn.”
