In his welcome address, Dr. Nazir Ahmad Gikar, the Principal of the college “stressed on the four parameters of confidence, communication, content and competencies for comprehensive success in this technology driven world to improve upon employability quotient.”
Hostelers, on the occasion, presented a brief cultural programme comprising a Sheena Song, a Skit and a Nazam besides the recitation of Kalam-i-Pak and Naat-e- Sarwar (SAW).
The vote of thanks was proposed by Prof. Zahoor Ahmad Chatt, the Nodal Principal of the Valley Colleges. Prof. Chatt congratulated the boarders for getting a chance to share their experiences with one another belonging, as they do, to different / distant corners of the valley and Ladakh. This, in his opinion, promotes cohesiveness.
