As part of Global Exchange Programme at Hallmark Public School, Sector-15, Panchkula, three young International experts, interacted with students of the school in a symposium. The focus of interactions & deliberations was ‘Environment’ and ‘Careers associated with Environment’. The highlight of the discussion was that safeguarding Environment was not just the job of environmentalists but each one of us. The session also saw the experts raising awareness among students, about career opportunities in the field of environment.
According to Mr. Jivtesh Garg, Director, Hallmark Public School, “Under our Global exchange programme, we have tied up with AIESEC -International Association of Students in Economic and Commercial Sciences, which is an International non-profit organization that provides young people with leadership opportunities to develop themselves into global leaders. In the first phase of the programme three dynamic youngsters from France, Egypt & China have held a symposium at the school. Ujjwal Sangwan was the Team Leader to coordinate the event.”
Mr. Paul Dieudonne from Bordeaux, France, Mr. Hussein Ibrahim Salem from Egypt and Mr. Zexin Deng from China discussed relatively new terms like Physical, Mental and Emotional Hygiene. According to them all these type of aspects were part and parcel of our living Environment.
Said Mrs. Kavita Wadhwa, Principal, Hallmark Public School, Panchkula, “It was a highly interactive session. The International experts mingled with students in an informal way and made understanding of their ideas about Environment quite easy. The students asked some pertinent questions from the experts which made the symposium quite lively.” The students were also involved in a group discussion. Said Mr. Paul Dieudonne, “All three of us shared the situation that exists in our respective countries in relation to environment. This was a new learning for the students.”
As part of the symposium, ways of saving environment and making it pollution free were discussed. Mr. Zexin Ding said, “All activities by us have an impact on environment. There is a symbiosis between human beings and the environment. What we give we receive back in equal measure.” Mr. Salem from Egypt was quite enthused with the response he got from the school students, “I am all praise for the kind of education that Hallmark Public School is giving to its students. I wish that in Egypt too we had such a strong schooling system.”
The next phase will see experts from Russia, Egypt, Poland, Switzerland, Canada and Australia to participate in interactive projects and initiatives with Hallmark students.
