A workshop on POSCO - Protection of Children from Sexual offences 2012 was conducted by Mr. Pardeep, Project Director, Project CACA and Dr. Keshav Sharma, Psycho-oncologist, Fortis Healthcare to create awareness about Child Abuse for Supporting staff and teachers in the school premises Jodhamal Public School. Physical abuse might be the most visible type of abuse but other types of abuse such as emotional abuse, neglect, exploitation also leave deep, lasting scars on the mind of the child. The earlier, abused children get help, the greater chance they have to heal and break the cycle. He also gave 24 - hour child helpline number 1098. The staff learnt about common signs of abuse, the kind of abusers and how they intervention and care can make a huge difference in a child’s life. Ignoring children’s needs, putting them in unsupervised, dangerous situations or making them feel guilty add to increase in child abuse. Regardless of the type of abuse, the result is serious and causes emotional harm on the overall development of the child. The workshop also highlighted the role of supporting staff and teachers in educating and training the students to face the challenges of child abuse. Being patient, good listeners and not ignoring any behavioural or sudden academic changes can be of great help for children and for identifying and protecting a child from abuse. Many shocking incidents of child abuse were revealed which left a deep impact on the minds of each. It was a wakeup call for the everyone to actively notice and reports any such cases in future. The staff were informed about the helpline numbers, apps and the POCSO E box which came in handy to deal with such problems. The Vice Principal Ms. Shefali Sanwal expressed deep concern and requested the teachers, supporting staff, driver, and conductors to join hands to eradicate this evil from the society so that new generation can face the society fearlessly and lead a life with great self-respect. She concluded by saying that if the teachers become an epitome of love and affection for their students it would help the students to break the shackles of the cruel stigma.

 Nimisha Shukla of Jodhamal Shines at UGC 2017 at Mumbai.

Nimisha Shukla of Jodhamal Public School Jammu made a mark in the International UGC Conference held at Sahara Star Hotel Mumbai where she was a part of the Youth Ministry comprising of 7 students Pan India . Nimisha was shortlisted out of lakhs of students across India to be a part of the Youth Conference as the selection procedure was rigorous with written rounds and multiple skype sessions and telephonic interview rounds. It was a privilege for Jammu to have one of their student in this International Conference in the Youth Ministry to be a member of the penal discussion on “Should Schools introduce the internships and make it mandatory in the school curriculum?. Nimisha was against the topic as she felt that internship is important for the students to gain confidence but at the same time it cannot be introduced in to the curriculum as the students are already burdened with the Academic and Co Curricular Curriculum in most of the schools and they will find it difficult to do the intern if it is made mandatory. However if it is optional the students who can travel extra miles during the vacations can go in for it. 7 youth ministry members who were selected for this were from elite schools of India and each one was representing a different state and different Board. All students did very well and the Youth Ministry was judged by the panel who declared Nimisha Shukla at the second position and she was awarded by Prof. V. Ramgopal Rao the Director of IIT New Delhi. Nimisha is very happy since she was felicitated in the school assembly by Principal Trilok Singh Bist & Trustee Nandan Kuthiala . All wished her for a better future and better board result since she has the acumen like many others at Jodhamal to be the CBSE Topper this year.
