All campuses of Sadeeqa’s Learning System (SLS) Montessori and High School celebrated the annual Little Scientists Week, says a press release.
The SLS, Gulraiz campus school ground looked like a huge science lab on Friday with the primary and secondary students of the Gulraiz campus dressed up as little scientists with lab coats and goggles proudly displaying their science projects.
Parents were invited as guests for the day and they went from display to display with confident, young scientists explaining the “what” and “how” of the science behind their project.
Some students made the science models and projects taking help from their science books whereas others had made theirs by observing everyday scientific happenings around them that had fascinated them. Students told the guests how they used recycling materials like water bottles, ice cream sticks, cardboard, tins and cartons to make their projects. A homemade projector displayed in a dark room was liked by everyone. The primary level student who had made it explained that it worked through the help of a magnifying class and a mobile screen placed behind it in an inverted position. An old cardboard box was used and the guests were shown how the picture quality could be improved by the use of a better magnifying glass.
The life cycles of various insects and reptiles were displayed. Secondary level students focused more on energy conservation and how different forms of energy could be used to run electromagnetic trains, huge LED lights and mills. Section Head, SLS, Gulraiz campus, Tanzeela Nadeem appreciated all her students and teachers and thanked the parents for all their help and for being such an appreciative audience.
An Open Day was held at Sadeeqa’s Learning System (SLS) Montessori & High School, Khadim Hussain Road branch, says a press release.
The programme began with a cheerful welcome address followed by an upbeat performance by the little ones. The rest of the performances that followed were based on the activities, nursery rhymes and values education lessons that are taught to the students in the school.
The Junior Montessori students performed on several poems as they came up on the stage dressed up as penguins, gummy bears, jokers, fruits and vegetables. The penguins marched, the bears clapped and the jokers laughed as they gave adorable and informative performances on their topics. Special efforts were put into the props for every performance and headgears, costumes and pompoms made very one feel full of colour and happy.
The first half of the programme ended with a short skit based on a story about the Importance of Trees by the Advanced Montessori
students. The skit demonstrated the importance of trees for our ecosystem and the dangers of humans cutting them.
Students performed on poems, songs and skits from their year’s learnings. Some were dressed up as shapes, others wore bows and ties while the rest wore colourful costumes.
Every school performance feels a little incomplete without a little bit of national pride and so a tableau was performed on a national song. The students represented the Armed Forces of Pakistan, some young ones were dressed up as famous sports people, others were doctors and lawyers.
Section Head, SLS, Khadim Hussain Road branch, Badra Beg thanked the students’ families for being such a good audience. She appreciated all the participants for their hard work and confidence and gave full credit to her team of teachers for such a successful event.
The programme ended with a short performance on sharing and caring and why is it important. The skit was based on a story of a fish who would share her shiny scales with the rest of the ocean fish.
The purpose of an open day is to invite students’ families to the school to see what they have learnt in the past year. The function was organised with weeks of preparation and it showed as the Montessori students did everything very independently. There was nearly full participation of all the branch students and from conduction to recitations, announcements and the welcome addresses, everything was done by the students themselves. In order to accommodate all the family members of the participants, the programme was divided into two halves.
