Graduation, Quiz Competitions and Picnics

Here’s a quick snapshot of what’s been going on at our schools for children forced into labour: End of Term, Graduation and Award Ceremonies, Independence Day Celebrations, Field Trips to the Museum and Picnics at the Park.

 

The results for the April-August academic term were announced on Results Day, with students being promoted to their next classes and final-term students graduating from the programme. A total of 240 students graduated from the primary education programme and 370 new students were admitted to schools across the country.

 

The students did well with an overall internal rating of GOOD and an impressive 49% of students scoring an A or A+ overall.  45 of the top graduates were placed in a variety of private and government secondary schools where they will continue their education with our sponsorship. Parents were specially invited to the Results Day and given information on this programme to sponsor the secondary education of the top graduates. Not only were prizes and stipends awarded to the position holders and the successful graduates, but the children got a chance to express and enjoy themselves by putting on various performances in acting, recital and singing.

 

Our schools marked Independence Day with flag hoisting ceremonies, decorations, and the singing of the anthem and other local songs. This year, a Quiz Competition was also added to the celebrations to get the children excited about reinforcing their knowledge of national history.

 

Finally, this past quarter ended with a trip to the museum and a picnic at the park. The children enjoyed the change of scenery and a day full of outdoor games, park rides, hearty snacks as well as free-spirited learning by seeing. These purely recreational activity days provide an essential outlet for the development that comes from social relaxation which a child labourer’s schedule does not allow.

 

Thank you for reading and for your continued support. Please consider donating to Zindagi Trust to support our programs for these wonderful, bright children living and working in the slums of urban Pakistan. Have a happy day!
