Faridkot, September 4

Known for introducing learning through television, audio lessons and practical skills at the primary level in his school, 44-year-old Rajinder Kumar, posted at Government Primary School at Wara Bhai Ka village in Faridkot, is among the 47 teachers selected for National Awards-2020.

He is the only teacher in the state who has been selected by the Union Ministry of Education, Department of School Education and Literacy, for the prestigious award. Rajinder Kumar and his spouse Harinder Kaur are postgraduates in physics and teach in the same school.

Rajinder Kumar has made full use of his knowledge in physics by using practical training to invoke students' interest and curiosity in the things around them. "Understanding things around us and then using these as an educational tool is the best way to generate interest among students," Rajinder Kumar said.

Three years back, Kumar was conferred the state award for services in education for creating good infrastructure. Though government provides funds, the staff, villagers and even NRIs contribute to make sure the school keeps scaling new heights.
