Farm to School Initiative

Agriculture impacts society in many ways, including supporting livelihoods through food, habitat and jobs. Agriculture is considered the backbone of Pakistan's economy, which relies heavily on its major crops and ranks 8th globally in farm output, according to the List of countries by GDP sector composition. 

When you live in such a country, it becomes even more essential for the children to have food system knowledge, such as gardening, seasonality and what foods are local. Implementing eco-friendly activities in the school can be done in a variety of different ways. We took the Farm-to-school initiative to foster healthy activities and make vital ties between nature and the children.

At Al-Mustafa Academy, we introduced the "MODEL CLASSROOM FOR AGRICULTURE PROGRAM"  for our children. This classroom gives our children to learn and experience agriculture and farming practices. We organised training workshops in school by farming experts in which the students were given theoretical explanations and practical implantation. Apart from increasing their food system knowledge, this program benefits the children in many other ways. It encourages fruit and vegetable consumption in children and increases physical activity. The children tend to make healthier food choices at school and home. It also improves the willingness of children to try new foods. 

Leadership Badge Ceremony

Effective leadership is important because it inspires students to be good role models and fosters a healthy school environment and leadership qualities in students. Badges of the Monitors, Prefects, Head Girls & Boys and House Leaders are changed every six months.

Oath Taking Ceremony

The newly selected Monitors, Prefects, Head Girls & Boys, Deputy Head Girls & Boys & House Leaders swore to honestly perform their duties.

Dear friend,

While discussing modern-day learning techniques, experts can not stress enough on the importance of co-curricular activities as part of a child's learning process. Co-curricular activities fuel students' learning by stimulating creative thoughts, improving their social and organizational skills, developing interests and talents, and offering them the chance to switch off for a while and do something they enjoy.

Following is a glimpse of co-curricular activities organized at Al-Mustafa Academy in the past couple of months. 

Awareness Session on Internet Safety and Media Literacy

Nowadays, the world is all about the internet and media, and everyone's prone to its harmful effects. Children are the most vulnerable users who could be easily harmed or misguided by anyone or anything online. It is the need of the day that we equip our children with information and tools for their protection and safety while accessing the internet and digital media.

Story conducted an awareness session on Internet Safety and Media Literacy through storytelling and distributed story kits among students as a material resource for further reading and understanding.

 Awareness Session on Covid-19 Vaccination

It was not long ago when Covid-19 took the whole world by storm. In many cases, the governments struggled to convince people to get vaccinated, and officials had to implement strict rules to ensure the vaccination of people. Many people didn't have an idea how vaccines work, and that's why it created waves of fear among the ignorant ones. So we decided to educate our children about the importance of Covid-19 vaccination and organised an awareness session. 

IRD Health Officers conducted a fun awareness session to educate school children about the importance of Covid-19 Vaccination for individuals and their families by performing drama.

Picnic at Winter Land

Winter's magic lies in the snow, but luckily or unluckily, Karachi is a coastal city and snowfall for us is a fairy tale. One of the most common children's fantasies is to play in the snow with their friends. All the children can't go to areas where it snows, especially the less privileged ones, so some cool people brought snow to Karachi, and we took our kids there. A picnic for children was arranged at the Winter Land PAF Museum, and the kids made a lot of sweet memories with their teachers and fellas. 

Quiz Competition

A Quiz Competition is one of the most exciting and effective ways of increasing general knowledge and enhancing brain activity. We organized an Islamic Quiz competition on the Life of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) among the grade IX and X students. 

Allama Iqbal Day Celebration

Allama Muhammad Iqbal is the National Poet and thinker of Pakistan. He was the very first person who presented the idea of a separate state of Pakistan. 9th November is his Birth Anniversary, and our students performed the following activities at a school gathering.

  • Quran and Naat Recitation
  • Speeches
  • Poetry Recitation
  • Crambo (Bait Bazi)
  • Tableaus
  • Performances on National Songs

Science Exhibition

A science exhibition is a wonderful tool that engages students in learning scientific facts, increases their curiosity towards nature, and develops research skills. Such displays also encourage children's brains to think out of the box, ask questions and look for the answers. So a science exhibition was organised where students presented their science projects, posture presentations and models on microorganisms, scientific measurements, the periodic table, nervous systems and nephrons etc. 

Women Empowerment Activity   

In today's society, a false impression of history has been emerging where we are told that the women in the older times were not empowered or not strong enough to play their part in bringing change in society. But when we look into history, we find many women playing the most influential roles and turning the course of history with their vision and steadfastness. The founder of Pakistan, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah was not alone in his struggle; his sister Dr Fatima Jinnah fought with him side by side. Mr Jinnah believed in women and expressed at many forums that it is only women who can bring change from within the society, and so they did. 

It is essential for boys and girls to know the importance of women in building a society, and native examples are the most effective. So we arranged different activities in this regard:

  • First Aid tableau performance,
  • Speeches & Presentations on Women's role in Pakistan’s independence movement.

Awareness Workshop on Children's Rights

One of the most effective ways of eliminating oppression of any sort is to make the oppressed aware of their rights. Children could be the most vulnerable and easy to victimize targets because, in many instances, they are unable to recognise the kind of violence they are facing and if they can report it. The predators exploit their innocence and prey on them. Not only the adults but children themselves must be taught their rights. 

With the collaboration of the Legal Aid Society (LAS non-profit organization), an awareness workshop was organized at Al-Mustafa Academy on Child Rights to empower our children with the proper knowledge of their rights.

Sindhi Culture Day Celebration

Culture is the essence of a society. This is what brings beauty and charm to a community. it was Sindhi Cultural Day, and we had a bash; from colourful dresses to caps, all the children wore and displayed cultural attire.

When we were kids, we used to dream about summer vacations, the never-ending plans to have fun, go for outings, play with friends from morning to evening, stay awake past 11 P.M., to have whatever amount of ice-creams we wanted. The kids these days may have similar fantasies for summers, but one thing has changed for sure i-e to have loads of screen time. Well, whatever fantasies the children may have made, they all start missing school at the end of summer vacations, yearning to meet friends and teachers. The excitement levels go tremendously high when it's the start of a new academic session right after the summer- break, new books, notebooks, stationery, and new classes for the upcoming session make children happier and more energetic. 

It got even more exciting for us since we have achieved a new milestone of 1000 students at Al-Mustafa Academy. It is indeed a great success for Al-Mustafa to provide quality education to 1000 students in a backward area such as Korangi. All the credit goes to the teachers and administration, especially to Ms Amber Arif, the Academy's principal. 

The First Day of the New Session

The kids came running to school with happy faces, toothy smiles, giggles and non-stop chatters. The teachers and school administration welcomed them and started the new session with more energy and new hopes.


Though the past quarter mainly consisted of the summer break, we still managed to have a few exciting activities for students and teachers.

Annual Day

The annual school day is the most important day for a student and the school itself. It is the culmination of the academic year. This day celebration was made for graduating the current grades and promotion to following classes. The extraordinary performers were applauded and given gifts for their achievements. 

Parent-Teacher Meeting

This meeting was held on the Annual Day. Teachers and parents discussed together the performances of their children, the hindrances the child may be facing in learning, the ways to increase their child's learning outcomes and the plans for the coming academic session. 

Eid Party

Eid is the most celebrated festival in Pakistan; we celebrate Eid with family and friends at home. But when our students returned from Eid vacations, we had a blast together. Teachers and students played games and had lunch together. 

Training Workshop for Teachers

The most important thing for any professional is to continuously improve and evolve professionally and personally. Teachers are the ones who have the power to mould children and make or break their personalities. Their grooming and professional development are essential. The summer break is the perfect time for such activities. The principal took this opportunity and arranged a 2-Days Training Workshop for teachers at Al-Mustafa Academy. In the training workshop, the teachers were given new insights on the following topics:

  • Child Psychology
  • Reading Skills
  • Teacher's attitudes toward students
  • Personal Grooming
Teacher's Training Session on Child Psychology
Teacher's Training Session on Child Psychology

Assalam-o-Alaikum and Eid Mubarak!

Eid is an occasion of happiness and peace, and here we come with another great news for you to double the delights of this joyous occasion. The hard work of our Al-Mustafa Academy's administration and Al-Mustafa's Educational Committee is paying off, and we have 157 new students enrolled at the academy. 

Grades and Sectioning at Al-Mustafa Academy

At AM Academy, the students are sectioned and grouped on a pattern followed generally in Pakistan.

  • Preschool (for the age of 3 to 5 years),
  • Primary (grades I through V)
  • Lower Secondary/ Middle (grades VI through VIII)
  • Higher Secondary (grades IX and X).

To avoid overcrowding and improve the classroom's learning experience, each grade is divided into two sections.

Library and Computer Lab

To enhance the learning and thinking capabilities of the children and improve their creativity as well scientific skills, we have a well equipped and functional Computer Lab and a Library loaded with engaging books on multiple exciting topics. 

The computer Lab can accommodate 20 Students at a time, while the Library's capacity is for 30 students at a time. 

Tree Plantation Drive

Tree Plantation drives combat many environmental issues like deforestation, soil erosion, desertification in semi-arid areas, global warming, and enhancing the beauty and balance of the environment. We have arranged a Tree Plantation drive in which all the students were encouraged to take part. Students and teachers planted trees on the school campus and nearby areas. Involving the students in this healthy activity created awareness among them about the effect of trees on the environment and sowed seeds of compassion and care for the surrounding in the innocent hearts of our children.

All of this was made possible with your support. We will continue to send you more updates from the field; till then, enjoy your Eid and sow new seeds.

Can a world be imagined without colours? Not at all! Nature has many colours, making the world look brighter and beautiful. Colours are indeed the "smiles of nature".

Celebrating colour day is great to accentuate the importance of each colour in students and help them to learn different things associated with colours.

Red Day Celebrations at Al-Mustafa Academy

The kids celebrated "Red Day" at Al-Mustafa Academy. It was a wonderful learning activity that helped children to understand the concept of Primary Colours. It helps the children to sort and classify objects based on colours thereby reinforcing cognitive skills.


The teachers arranged art activities including drawing, colouring & papercraft, Red colour fruits introduction, and reciting rhyme which they enjoyed with immense interest. It was a fun-filled day with innocent faces shining and reflecting brightness, joy, and enjoyment. The tiny tots were attired in Red dresses and looked bright, lively and cheerful.

Learning Outcome

The kids understand the significance of one of the colours, Red and feel the joy of having a vibrant colour in their immediate environment.
