LECTURES TEACHING mathematics at degree-level will get an opportunity to update their knowledge and hone their mathematical skills. The Parvataneni Brahmaiah Siddhartha College plans to organise a workshop on mathematics in the last week of September. "The idea is to enable them to update their mathematical skills based on a thorough study of the `Modern abstract algebra,' authored by Frolley and `Modern algebra,' by Bhattacharya," said S.V. Subrahmanya Sastry, the college principal, here on Wednesday.
Seminar on education
In addition to the workshop, the college has a number of programmes lined up for the coming months. Important among them is a two-day national seminar on `Quality education', being planned for November.
"Such events help development of students as well as teachers, inculcate management and governance skills, awaken their urge to indulge in community services and equip them to contribute their mite to society at large," he said. The college management plans to invite the NAAC Chairman, V.S. Prasad, and member of the National Institute of Education and Planning, J.B. Tilak, as chief guests for the national event.
The college, which attained autonomy last year, conducts guest lectures every Saturday on communication skills and personality development for its students. An internal quiz organized by the students of the Bachelor of Business Management (BBM) is also a weekly feature. The P.B. Siddhartha College is the only educational institution under Acharya Nagarjuna University to be given an `A' grade by the NAAC.
THE LAST 12 days kept busy nearly 800 boys and girls drawn from Andhra Loyola College. They were volunteers from degree first year course who teamed up with local voluntary organisations to educate Pushkaram pilgrims on the hazards of AIDS, through a vigorous campaign.
The students took out AIDS awareness rally, distributed pamphlets, set up Pushkar stalls the opposite railway station, the bus stand and Pushkarnagars at Gollapudi, Vidyadharapuram, Tarapet and PWD ground. A part of them comprised mobile teams, which took care of pamphlet-distribution exercise.
The ALC extension officer, K. Adam, said the drive was aimed at spreading awareness on AIDS among the future generations.
