You can either use the following
discussion or develop your own taking help from it:
Candidate A: Hey do you know Rahul
has been missing the House meetings regularly for quite some time; he may get
Candidate B: Really? This is
something very serious. Does he not want to take part in inter-house
activities? Co-curricular activities are so essential for the overall
development of the personality of a student!
Candidate A: I know. May be he has
some issues with his House Master. He did not select him for the English play
for the annual function last year; he has not been attending House meetings
since then. Nor he carries out his Prefect’s duties!
Candidate B: I think we should talk
to him regarding this. He is harming his own interests. We need to tell him
that taking part in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities is so
important. Not only they hone and enhance our personality, they also improve
our academic grades.
Candidate A: Absolutely true! He is
missing so much fun of the entertaining side of education. By the way do you
know where he is when the House meetings are going on?
Candidate B: No, I don’t have any
Candidate A: He sits in the library
and pretends to study.
Candidate B: I think we must talk
to him. We need to tell him rejections, refusals are part of life. For being
rejected once, we must not stop learning and taking part in activities. We must
tell him he must strive to participate in as many activities as he can.
Candidate A: Yes, I agree with you.
We must tell him if he misses House meetings, his chances of being selected in
any activity are zero. Besides, by denial of the reality no one succeeds.
Candidate B: We can discuss the
matter with our class teachers as well. She can further talk to his House
master and resolve any differences between them.
Candidate A: That’s a good option.
But I think we first must talk to Rahul first.
Candidate B: I agree with you.
Let’s go to the library and have a word with him.
Follow up questions and answers:
Do you think the house captain
Yes, I feel House Captain can play
a key role in putting his/her perspective right. He can encourage him/her to
start attending the house meetings by assuring him participation in the coming
Inter- House competitions. House Captain’s talking to him/her will really
motivate him again, and he will start attending the House Meetings again.
you suggest involving...?
would like to involve either my class teacher or any other teacher in the
problem. Either of them might further
talk to his/her house master.
How could the librarian...?
Yes , the librarian could also be involved in counseling
the student. He can tell the student how important attending house meetings is.
May be this will have some effect on him/her.
