An In House Youth parliament was organized in the school on11th October 2018. Youth Parliament is an active learning platform where students learn to take quick decisions, teamwork, expressing their views, standing by each other, giving constructive criticism and above all, learning to form opinions on issues of national importance.
Around 70 girls from classes VIII-XI took part in this event with great enthusiasm. All the participants were divided into different Indian political parties to act in accordance with the different proceedings of Parliament.
The Youth Parliament started with the political and coalition negotiation among the participants.This negotiation resulted into the formation of three groups of different parties. With the outside support of the Third Front, the largest group led by BJP formed the government.
The prime attraction of this event were the ‘Question Hour’ and the ‘Zero Hour’ sessions in which more than 50 questions related to current political, cultural and economic issues including mob lynching, politics over beef, terrorism, price rise, crime against women, surgical strike etc., were raised by the opposition and answered by the designated ministers of the Parliament.
In the post lunch session the opposition brought the Call Attention Notice raising the issue of growing mob lynching incidents in the country and demanded from the speaker for discussion in the house. The motion was accepted and the members discussed the issue in all its length and breadth.
At the end of the discussion, the house approved a resolution based on the suggestions of the members to deal with the menace of mob lynching. The whole-hearted and enthusiastic participation of the girls made this event a great success. Following participants were awarded with prizes in various categories:
