ANNUAL REPORT 2021-2022

 

GCG Nacholi is a newly established rural college for girls which started functioning in August 2018. The endeavor of the Government of Haryana to make higher education accessible to the girl students, from rural areas, was the driving force behind the setting up of this college. 

 

A sprawling campus, spread over 12 acres, equipped with the latest amenities and modern teaching tools like smart classrooms, air-conditioned digital library, fully equipped laboratories, a multi-purpose auditorium, a 6-acre sports field and separate offices for diverse activities are almost ready in the upcoming building at Village Nacholi. The college offers undergraduate courses in Bachelor of Arts (B.A) and Bachelor of Commerce (B.Com) and currently has a student strength of 456, up from 93 in the first batch. A teaching Faculty of 8 and non-teaching staff of 5 is the backbone of this college. We have limited resources and are short of hands but are never short off energy and vigour to work for the growth of this institution. Our students too remain involved in various activities all through the academic year as all college departments provide automatic membership to them in their societies, clubs, and cells. As a result, there is always an atmosphere of learning, living and celebration in the campus.

 

Sir, it is because of this mutual collaboration that we are able to organize successfully almost every important event all around the year. Many events overlap amongst various subject societies, clubs and cells as the same students and same staff members are involved in these activities. I take pride in sharing with you a consolidated report of our achievements and actions during this ongoing academic year 2021-22.

 

Covid has disrupted the academic calendar of all educational institutions. We too have been immensely affected by frequent lock downs and delayed examinations. Although, officially fresh classes started from September but we present here our achievements today from the month of June 2021.

 

·       In the month of June, staff members of the college celebrated World Environment Day on the 5th by planting variety of fruit trees, ornamental trees, and shady trees in the college compound. Simultaneously, our students supported us in this campaign by planting one plant in their vicinity and by taking an oath to protect the Mother Earth from all kinds of man-made devastation.

 

·       A state-level Surya Namaskar competition with Mantra Ucharan was organised by the college to mark the celebration of International Yoga Day on 21st June. The college received more than hundred entries. Aarti Gehlot from DAV Centenary College, Faridabad back the first prize Nisha Sharma from GCW Hisar was adjudged second and Pooja from GCW Faridabad was declared third in the state-level competition.

 

·       The university semester exams started in July and the next academic session was pushed to the month of August. An online essay writing competition on ‘Mere Sapnon Ka Bharat’ and a slogan writing competition was organised to celebrate our Independence Day on 15th August.

·       Teachers day was celebrated with great enthusiasm on 5th September. Our gratitude to our students for showering their love and affection on this day. I would particularly like to share one student’s message to us which said

 

             एक किताब, एक क़लमएक बच्चा और एक शिक्षक मिलकर दुनिया बदल सकते हैं।

 

·       Poshan Mah a month-long program, celebrated under the aegis of Ministry of Women and Child Welfare, to make the students aware of nutritional benefits of good and healthy food was celebrated by the Women Cell all through the month of September. To mark the celebrations a rapid fire 25 questions quiz on Healthy Food And Healthy Eating Habits was floated by the coordinator of the Women Cell. These were to be answered in 10 minutes. We thought we would be able to arrive at some decision, but every student turned out to be a winner. Other events which were organised under Poshan Mah were poster making and slogan writing competitions on the theme Bhojan Se Poshan.

 

·       Gandhi Jayanti was celebrated on 2nd October. Every year the college students celebrate this day with great enthusiasm. This year too Bapu’s birth anniversary was celebrated with a Quiz on Bapu, his thoughts and his actions.

 

·       The UN Day was celebrated in the college on 24th October and a Quiz on the United Nations was attempted by the students of the college.

 

·       A talent hunt was launched in the college on 17th November. We were overwhelmed with entries from students eager to showcase their talents to the college community. As a result, the college today has a rich reservoir of multi-faceted girls, curious to learn and determined to go out and steal the show. This was very evident in the zonal and inter-zonal competitions held in the month of December 2021 and March 2022 respectively.

 

·       Constitution Day was celebrated in the college with great vigor and enthusiasm in the college compound. On this occasion, the students read out the Preamble to the Constitution and took a pledge to uphold the unity and integrity of the country. Besides discussing the making & evolution of the constitution, the students were reminded about the great sacrifices made by our freedom fighters and the tremendous efforts made by them to give this country one of the most beautiful, comprehensive and foolproof legal document to run the nation.

 

 

·       7 students of this college participated for the first time in the Zonal-Youth Festival organized by Pt. J.L.N. Government College, Faridabad in the month of December, 2021. I very proudly announce to the audience that in our first ever participation, our students bagged 4 prizes. While Jaya of B.A.III won the first prize in Rangoli, and the college bagged the first prize in Slogan writing, Ananya Saxena of B.Com.I and Priya of B.Com.I won the second prize in Punjabi and Urdu poetry recitation respectively.

This was indeed a proud achievement for our college especially because this was the first competition, organized at such a huge scale, in which our students had participated and even got rewarded.

 

The Women Cell of the college actively worked throughout the session aiming to instill confidence and pride amongst the girl students of the college. This cell believes in creating awareness and empowering girl students through affirmative action and providing opportunities for further growth. The following programs and activities were conducted with an aim to provide a balanced, positive, and energizing environment for the girl students.

A strong message was goven to the students that highlighted the various challenges before women of today, and how, their inner resilience and conviction in their own capabilities had opened up many fields of enterprise and entrepreneurship.

 

Sports

Sports is an integral part of our life. It enables the students to not only gain skills and knowledge about various sports but also helps them to learn the importance of having a healthy mind and body. Our college students are very sport centric and their active participation in our sports day is a testimony to that fact.

·       It gives me immense joy to inform you that almost 1/3rd of college’s strength participates in various sporting events every year. So much so that multiple rounds of heats often need to be conducted per event. This year too the sports day saw a participation of 150 students in 11 events spread over 2 days. Anchal Nagar of BAII was declared the best athlete.

Before I wind up, a program I wish to report today very proudly is MEDHAVI. An ambitious program, MEDHAVI has been launched by my staff and myself together. Under this program we reward the meritorious students of all classes with free textbooks and study material. This program was started in the academic session 20-21 and has continued thereafter. A book-bank was later floated with the books purchased and now, in addition to the meritorious students, financially weak students are also provided free books for the whole year. I am extremely proud of my staff for their enthusiastic and generous contributions towards making Medhavi a very successful campaign.

Our college cherishes its mission "To empower the girl students with wide ranging knowledge and skills to lead an independent and fulfilling life.” It makes every endeavor to create students of substance adept in life skills and soft skills that are needed to compete in today's work environment. Together we strive to raise a community of fiercely independent, strong, intelligent, and wise young women, ready to achieve and deliver back to their people, society and the nation.
