Guiding students towards success is not a unilateral process. Which is why we strongly believe in providing guidance to students from multiple perspectives viz Research Tools, Counselors, School Alumni and University Connects. In collaboration with Univariety, The Punjab Public School offers students a digital platform which not only helps them draft out a career plan, but also helps them in finding the right career for them, based on their skills, interests and abilities. Activities in the school include university visits, counselling sessions, career workshops and many more, which focus on giving students the needed exposure and clarity on matters related to their choice of careers and streams.
A Stream Selection Career Workshop was conducted for Grade X students. The workshop mainly talked about the various streams and prospective careers related to those streams, and it was discussed in detail with students. We also discussed many academic as well as vocational careers that students could explore from before they narrow down on any one of the careers/courses. Focus, Time Management, and Proper Planning were highlighted upon. The subject combination offered by the school in grade XI was explained in detail.
