The new academic year is about to begin. Because these schools are in a rural area where there are many barriers to girls' education. There is a campaign every year for admission in girl’s school. At the beginning of this academic year, a campaign was launched for the admission of girls. The names of girls who have reached school age were obtained from the records of the health department. The school staff met with community leaders and asked them to play a role in enrolling girls in the school. He also went door to door and explained to the parents the importance of girls' education.
The campaign was very successful which has not only increased the admission of the girls but also raised awareness in community about the importance of girls education to uplift the community.
The students of the school have very limited chance to go to city and explore new things. Principal of Government College Jauharabad provided an opportunity to the students to visit the college and attend a Welcome Ceremony arranged for the newly admitted students in the college. Apart from the motivational speeches for the students about importance of education to make a prosperous society music, dance and drama was also performed in the event.
Students visited different departments of the college. It was great time to broaden their spectrum about the educational institutes. They returned back with happy faces and motivated to reach the college for higher education to excel in life.
