On Thursday 15th December, 2022, an interesting magic show was organized at Bilawal Stadium” in Hamdard Public School by the team of Dolmen Mall. Magic is an art that is performed to entertain the spectators by the usage of seemingly impossible feats conducted by the use of tricks, illusions and also sleight of hands which needs a lot of practice. Classes from Prep Junior to V congregated at the stadium sharp at 10: 30 am. At first, the entertainer of the program introduced the configuration of the whole show, then he engaged students in different activities such as recitation of the poems, exercising the body and telling jokes etc. He also launched a puppet as “snow man” which made the spectators burst into loud cheers. Finally the most awaited magician set foot in the ground, dressed up like a vampire with a conical hat. Everyone was filled with curiosity as for some of them, this was the first experience. The magician first exhibited small tricks. All the students as well as teachers equally with bated breath waited for more to come. The magician performed several tricks which were unbelievable. All the time he kept the boisterous students spell bound with his tricks. He made things disappear in the air and brought them out of his pocket. He transformed a pigeon into a rabbit, and turned different sticks into umbrellas. Even though he called out a girl from the audience as helper, handed over a rope to put in a small bag which was turned into a snake.
Everybody was so amused with his tricks and no one even realized how one hour had passed. Everyone praised and admired the performance of the magician. At last students got booklets about the “Dolmen shopping Festival” namely Food, Play, Fun starting from 17th December- 8th January. After the program all the students along with teachers came back joyfully towards classes.
The present system of education has witnessed a gradual acceptance of co-curricular activities as a part of main curriculum. So, when our school management announced to celebrate “Winter Gala” the announcement was received with an enthusiastic and supportive round of applause by all teachers and students. The entire building was decorated brilliantly with balloons, banners, welcoming notes, snow man, snowflakes and many more. The most important part of fest was mouth-watering food which was prepared by the students under the supervision of teachers like hot soup, fruit salad, sandwiches, fresh juices and so on. Students enjoyed their food and played many indoor games. The day ended with full of joy and happiness. These rests are not for just about an entertainment and enjoyment but also about inculcating social values and developing responsibilities in students.
