WORLD TELECOMMUNICATIONS DAY
Students visit BIG FM Radio Station
With a view to emphasizing the importance of clear communication and enabling the students to understand the same, Spring Dale Senior School organized a visit to 92.7 BIG FM on the occasion of World Telecommunications Day. The day coincides with the 150th anniversary of the International Telecommunication Union and the signing of the first International Telegraph Convention.
Terming the visit to BIG FM as a unique experience for students, Mr Rajiv Kumar Sharma, Principal, Spring Dale Senior School, said that the event afforded the students with a chance to learn the myriad ways in which clear communication can have an positive impact on the society. “The students also got a chance to discover the evolution of the technology that governs the modern means of communication and how to use them effectively for the welfare of the masses,” he said.
Dr Kirat Sandhu Cheema, Director, Spring Dale Educational Society, and Mr Sahiljit Singh Sandhu, Director and Managing Trustee, Spring Dale Educational Society, said that despite the advances in technology, a number of people, especially those in the rural areas, were still bereft of modern means of communication.
“The celebration of World Telecommunications Day in the school aims at making the students aware of the benefits that internet and its allied technologies and means of communication can bring to the people in backward areas. This would go a long way in bridging the digital divide,” they said.
