SLS Schools celebrate World Charity Day


September 4, 2015

All campuses of Sadeeqa's Learning System (SLS) Montessori and High School are celebrating the International Day of Charity in a weeklong series of events, says a press release.
The International Day of Charity was designated by the United Nations on September 5, the anniversary of the death of Mother Teresa.
All school notice-boards and decorations are carrying messages of giving and caring. These have been prepared by students and teachers to mark their week of committing to the cause of charity in and out of school.
Students have chosen their favourite sayings on charity and pasted them in their copies. Montessori students are singing poems about kindness and giving and primary level students are presenting skits on charity in special morning assemblies that are taking place daily. The assemblies are highlighting the meaning of charity in all its different forms. The donation of blood and organs is specially being highlighted as it is often overlooked as a form of charity. Students are reading up on the people and organisations in Pakistan and the world over who were or are known for their limitless giving in humanitarian causes.
Different campuses are doing fundraising and collecting funds for different organisations. Charity boxes have been put up in all campuses. Students have collected gently worn clothes and gently used toys for children at the Edhi Centre. They have visited the SOS Village with goodies and spent time painting and playing with the children. Colour pencils and monetary funds have been collected for Bostaan'ilm School, a non-profit afternoon school for underprivileged children in Lalazar and Harley Street. Monetary funds have also been collected for An-Najm, a technical training institute for young boys in Lalazar.
The Tufail Road campus is holding delicious bake sales in break time to collect funds and the Islamabad campus will be having a special carnival for the children of the nearby slum areas. The

children will get to play games, win prizes and eat homemade goodies.
Even though students, parents and teachers donate to different causes throughout the year, this week is particularly wonderful at all SLS campuses as the spirit of giving is at its all-time high.
