Defence Day Celebration

“Courage is not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it.” – Nelson Mandela
Our school celebrated Defence Day with this above-mentioned powerful quote in mind, emphasizing the courage displayed by our armed forces. The day began with recitation of the Holy Quran, setting a solemn and spiritual tone for the proceedings. Following the Quran recitation, a soul-stirring Naat was presented, paying homage to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). The Defence Day celebration was a poignant reminder of the significance of our armed forces and the need to always stand strong in defense of our nation. This was followed by speeches in both Urdu and English. Throughout the celebration, students showcased their talents through poetry recitations, and patriotic song performances, where students expressed their deep respect and gratitude to the brave soldiers defending our nation. One of the highlights of the day was the drill performed by students dressed in army attire, showcasing their discipline and patriotism. This display of unity and precision was met with thunderous applause from the audience. The senior teacher delivered a heartfelt speech on the importance of Defence Day, emphasizing the sacrifices made by our soldiers to protect our homeland. She reminded us that it’s our duty to value and preserve the hard-fought freedom we enjoy today. At the culmination of our Defence Day celebration, a poignant moment occurred when students recite Dua-e-Saeed, seeking blessings and protection for our nation and its defenders. The heartfelt supplication served as a reminder of the importance of unity and faith in the face of challenges.

Adventures in learning: Fun-filled Activities for Young Minds

Interactive and engaging learning activities play a pivotal role in the education of young students. These activities go beyond traditional classroom methods, offering dynamic experiences that captivate children’s attention and facilitate effective learning. By actively involving students in their lessons, such activities stimulate their curiosity, enhance retention, and promote a deeper understanding of subjects. Moreover, interactive learning fosters essential skills like problem-solving, teamwork, and critical thinking, setting a strong foundation for a lifetime of successful learning and personal growth. Activity 1: Promoting Oral Hygiene in First Graders: An educational activity aimed at instructing first graders on the importance of maintaining clean teeth, proper teeth brushing techniques, and raising awareness about oral hygiene was organized on 27th September, 2023. Activity 2: Scavenger Hunt on Plant Lifecycle for Third Graders In addition to the previously mentioned activity, another engaging scavenger hunt was organized for our third-grade students, aiming to impart knowledge about the intricate lifecycle of plants. This educational adventure involved crafting a list of clever clues to guide the young explorers in discovering missing cards, each depicting a distinct stage of the plant lifecycle. Upon completing the hunt, the students were tasked with the exciting challenge of rearranging these cards in the correct sequence, fostering a hands-on understanding of this fundamental biological process. The impact of these activities on the students at Hamdard Public School Junior Section has been remarkable. Students have shown improved knowledge retention and a higher level of engagement in their studies. These hands-on experiences have helped them grasp concepts more deeply and have honed their problem-solving and teamwork skills.
