"Every school was represented by three students - from 9th, 10th and 11th standards - and a teacher at yesterday's workshop and the response was very encouraging," he said. Nabarun De said the concerned students will now interact with their classmates and juniors at their respective institutions and help spreading the message.
Such interactions became necessary as smart phones are now an inevitable part of our lives and schoolchildren are not exception, Navneet Sharma, one of the attending teachers, said.
The workshop also sensitised students about the deleterious effects of smart phone addiction on their education and extracurricular activities, Nabarun De said.
"We have always encouraged students to involve themselves in sporting activities and asked all member schools to encourage their peers to participate in on-field games, necessary for all-round development of young ones," he said.
