Annual Exams and the Results Day Program

girls speaking at the ceremonyLast week the children of Christ Public School took their annual exams for the end of the school term.

Today they held the “Results Day” reward ceremony where the top achievers were given trophies, and every child was given a gift.

It was a wonderful celebration that included various performances including tableaux, dramas, and debates.

Amin thanked his Facebook friends, saying “Hallelujah, Greeting Dear Friends.  We have successful program of Annual result today. Kids performed different Tabloos or Dramas or debates etc. We are thankful to all of you for prayers.”

A tableau, in case you’ve forgotten, is where people wear costumes and pose in a motionless scene for the audience to enjoy. Here are a couple of examples:

Here is a photo from last week’s annual exam:

Below, the children were completing their test papers last week. It looks like it was a foggy morning in this outdoor courtyard. Notice how some of the students have to sit on the cold brick floor because there are not enough desks or benches.

Next week, books for the next term will be distributed to the children from the 28th to the 30th of December. Principal Amin is pointing to this announcement near the bottom of the banner.

The books have been purchased on credit and are ready for distributing to the kids.  Amin is very grateful for donations that have been received. He is trusting God to supply the remaining funds, as only a small amount has been received to date.

The first half of the full price will be due next week (December 31), a payment of $1,250. Amin asks for everyone’s prayers, and for  our donations if it is possible.

The remaining half will be due in two “easy” installments, $625 on January 31, and $625 on February 28.

Let’s all help with our prayers, and maybe some of us can also be a part of this miracle for these precious children.







School Trip Day Photos

kids get ready for the tripThe school trip on November 27th was a great success!  Funds were received just in time, and the children were able to go.

Here are some of the highlights from their adventure in Had Balo ki safari park.

I can’t help but notice that some of the rides and activities are similar to what American kids experience on a school playground, a community fair, or at a neighborhood park or zoo.  Here we take it for granted that our children can do these simple things. But for kids in Pakistan, it is not so common. Parents are not so easily able to share these kinds of experiences with their children.

Principal Amin was thrilled to share the excitement with the kids. He reported that a person welcomed them at the entry gate with a drum.  Here is a short video he took. (Click on the image):

This was a very satisfying trip, enjoyed by everyone! Thanks for your prayers and help in providing this for the kids.
