PUNE: The Lexicon School in Hadapsar, Pune, is committed to providing innovative and impactful educational experiences that go beyond traditional classroom learning. Recently, the school organized a student-led parliament called “YUVA SANSAD” to empower its students with a practical understanding of democracy and parliamentary procedures.
The initiative aimed to foster a deeper understanding of democracy, parliamentary procedures, leadership skills, and civic engagement among its students. The event took place on October 3, 2023, and provided students with a unique opportunity to simulate a real parliamentary setting, allowing them to experience and understand the decision-making processes that govern a country.
The sessions during YUVA SANSAD were carefully crafted to replicate the intricate workings of parliamentary proceedings, closely adhering to the specific rules and procedures that govern such important democratic institutions. This structured environment served as a valuable educational platform, allowing the students to gain hands-on experience in parliamentary decorum and etiquette.
Beyond theoretical knowledge, YUVA SANSAD provided a practical forum where students could actively engage in debates, articulate their thoughts eloquently, and propose innovative solutions. It instilled in them the confidence and skills necessary to express their ideas effectively, a vital skill set they can carry forward into their academic pursuits and future careers.
Annapurnalily Bipinraj, Principal of The Lexicon School, Hadapsar, expressed her thoughts on the event, stating that “The YUVA SANSAD aims to bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical experience. Our students were actively engaged in understanding the decorum of the parliament and delving into the status of government schemes and policies, how they are implemented, and their impact on the common people. This event not only fostered critical thinking and public speaking abilities but also laid the foundation for a deeper understanding of our nation’s functioning.“
