The World Council Meeting was also held in the second day of the convention (2nd November 2010) in Little Angels’ School Hattiban Lalitpur. The entire international guests associated with WCTQEE and the Executive members of QUEST- Nepal participated in the meeting.
Students' Quality Circle (SQC) is relatively a new approach applied in educational institutes to prepare total quality people. Total Quality People are those having GOOD as well as SMART characters. Quality people are not a matter of chance, but a constant and continuous effort is required to groom them. They have to be trained right from the beginning with the quality consciousness by adopting innovative ideas. Students' Quality Circle is one such innovative approach which helps the student to develop pro-social personality behavior together with academic knowledge. It also helps them to make total quality people, total quality citizens and total human beings. Quality products and quality service deliveries is possible only when we have total quality people.
The convention delegates, including students and teachers together made a very important conclusion during the Convention that the SQC movement in education should be followed in the future with priority. Young students and educationists who participated in the Convention decided to widely promote the practice of Students' Quality Circles throughout the world in private, community as well as government schools to prepare future quality citizens. The convention turned out to be a big education mela where students from various parts of the world meet and interact to understand each other. Business houses and various educational institutes supported to organize Convention to make it highly successful. I like to express my heartfelt thanks to all of them. The seventh national convention decided to be held on 26-28th October 2011 at Shuvatara School, Sanepa, Lalitpur.
