Workshop on the POCSO Act

A one day workshop was conducted on June 17, 2017 for all the NWS teachers. This workshop was on ‘Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act’. The workshop was conducted by Geetanjali Kumar, Life Skills Trainer & Counsellor and Parenting Coach. She is a CBSE empanelled trainer who had conducted over 500 workshops for teachers and Principals on Life Skills and associated areas in cities across India and abroad. She explained the salient features of POCSO Act, 2012 which was attended by all the teachers of NWS including the Principal, Sir Dennis Augustine and Vice-Principal, Molly Dennis.

While referring important salient features of this Act, it was mentioned that the special Courts while trying the offences under this Act, should protect the best interest of a child at every stage of the judicial process and must create a child friendly atmosphere. Procedures for reporting, investigation, recording of statement/evidence and trial of offences should always be very conducive and favourable to child. Every person including the child is under an obligation to report the matter of child abuse to special juvenile police or the local police. Such report should be recorded in a simple language.

The POCSO Act is gender neutral legislation and provides protection from sexual abuse to all children below 18 years of age irrespective of their gender. All trials before the special court must be conducted in camera and in the presence of parents of the child or any other person in whom the child has trust or confidence so that a child friendly atmosphere may be created. Identity of the child should not be disclosed and he/she should not be called repeatedly to testify in court. The evidence of child must be recorded within 30 days from the cognizance.

The Second session after lunch break was mainly used to motivate the teachers for various classroom situations by engaging them in group activities and through motivational videos. The teachers were highly inspired after the workshop and a good feedback was received by all the teachers regarding the workshop.

Teachers were taught the concept and features of Value Education and how they can inculcate good moral values in the lives of young children.

Prof. Handoo with his wit and humour made some of the tedious sessions light and easy. All the teachers gave their feedback on the programme and shared their thoughts on how they were greatly benefited by the Capacity Building Programme on CCE.
