A variety of colourful events were arranged at the Ring Road Campus of The Educators to mark the Mother’s Day. As per the theme of the event, the students and teachers were wearing yellow, blue and red dresses.
The hall was also festooned with poems on the mother while basic colours were the theme for other decorations. The school Principal Meena Arshad in her welcome address emphasised the importance of education for a society, saying that it was lack of education that lead to extremism in a society. She asked the mothers to lay stress on good training to children and help them become good human beings.
She said the Ring Road campus of The Educators was started with 36 students over a decade ago and has grown into a high level school with more than 750 students on the roll. The students performed on a welcome song waving props and throwing glitter and confetti. Boogie performance was done by nursery class. Playgroup students’ tableau was based on primary colours while KG students in performance explained how secondary colours are formed by mixing primary ones.
Another tableau by nursery students was titled “Mummy and me” with a little girl acting as a mother and the other as a daughter. A poem by Allama Iqbal based on the dream of a mother about her child was the theme of another tableau. Students of KG dressed in elegant white and black dresses in their performance said thanks to Almighty Allah for blessing them with mothers.
Games and quiz competitions were also a part of the event in which students and their mothers participated. Nine guests were awarded shields as brilliant mothers. The programme ended with a tribute paid to mothers by all the participating students holding candles.
