On 31st, two life skills sessions were held in Delhi World Public School, Barasat for children in grades 3 through 8, teaching them how to develop and follow Smart Goals. Ummeed Counsellors taught students study skills such as improving their memorisation and attention while also dealing with distractions. Emotional and social well-being is best improved when they are understood from childhood. Doting on this very idea, the children were also guided about how to deal with their emotions and the social skills which impact them.
