Deanery of Science

TEACHERS DAY CELEBRATION Deanery of Science A teacher is a compass that activates the magnets of curiosity, knowledge and wisdom. It becomes very necessary for us to thank our teachers for whatever they have been doing for us, putting in all their efforts day and night. Hence we, on behalf of all the students, thanked our teachers from the Deanery of Sciences on 5th September . Although it becomes our responsibility to thank them every day, this is a day made for them to feel special about themselves. The plan of making them feel special about their work was being made from the past one month. After a long brain storming about gifts and events, we made up a draft plan. We decided to collect money from the students of each and every class of Science deanery with the help of our Deanery level Student Council members and invest it in getting few small gifts filled with gratitude to our teachers. On 5th September with the help of our Deanery level council members ,we packed the gifts: a pen which is the symbol of knowledge, a key chain with a 50 year calendar in it which will remain as a memory as time passes and a plant sapling which is a symbol of growth, health, wealth and happiness. Then all the University level members along with their deanery level members showed their gratitude by gifting the teachers personally. This was a memorable day to all of us.

The Orientation Program of the Deanery Student Council Members of School of Law CHRIST was conducted on 26th July 2019, at the Kengeri Campus of CHRIST (Deemed To be University). The day started with a short prayer, following which a few ice breaking activities were conducted to facilitate interaction amongst the Deanery Student Council Members. The main purpose of theafore mentioned activities was to provide a congenial and informal environment for the students to get to know each other better. The program also featured many thought provoking discussions during which students raised concerns and made suggestions on various issues. The issues discussed ranged from the need to improve general security measures on campus, to the need for internship programs and summer school collaborations with Foreign Universities. After detailed deliberation the students were shown a Ted talk on the concept of ‘ideal leadership’, which gave them insight in to the role of a leader. The students discussed how a leader is not merely meant to be an autocratic figure, but should strive towards building a fiduciary relationship with his team. While discussing these ideas on the role of a ‘leader’, the students initiated a discussion on the role of the Student Council in Law School and discussed measures to improve the relationship between the Student Body and the Council. The members were then asked to present on certain topics which had been assigned to them before hand. Included among the topics were: Daksh, Teachers Day, Gratitude Week, mechanisms to include student perspectives on various aspects of campus life etc. The students were also given specific sub-committees to work under, in order to ensure the smooth functioning of all the council activities planned for the year. In conclusion, the Orientation Program was a fitting way for the Law School Deanery Council to start the Academic Year.
