All campuses of Sadeeqa’s Learning System (SLS) Montessori & High School celebrated Independence Day with great zeal and zest, says a press release.
The month of August remains festive in all branches of SLS and the spirit of patriotism can be felt in every branch. The celebrations for the Independence Day began when seven of the main road campuses of SLS School were lit up from top to bottom in green and white lights one day before 14th August. It was a sight to see for all the students and teachers. Students of Senior Section Lalazar upon their return from a long summer break held a series of week-long activities marking the Independence Day which was followed by a special morning assembly as the month of August came to an end.
The special event began when one of the senior student started explaining the history of the day. She then invited her fellow friends on the stage who performed on a tableau symbolizing unity and strength & also paid tribute to all the personalities and heroes of the nation who took an active part in the freedom movement. The tableau was followed by short messages, poems, performances on national songs and speeches inspiring national pride.
To involve the students sitting in the audience a small quiz competition was held. Students were asked general knowledge questions about Pakistan.
The last part of the special assembly was a pep talk given by one of the teacher who explained word by word meaning of the national anthem and emphasized on the fact that one should respect it as it is the simplest way of displaying ones love towards the country. The special assembly ended as the students sang the national anthem loudly and proudly adding to the spirit of nationalism that could be felt in the assembly area.

Students of Sadeeqa’s Learning System (SLS) Montessori and High School, Junior Section Lalazar and Zaraj Campus took part in a Plantation Activity recently held at the SLS Zaraj Campus, says a press release.
The plantation activity was facilitated by the Rotary Club Rawalpindi as part of Independence Day Celebrations in an effort to make Pakistan greener.
The preparations for the plantation activity started a day before the actual day on which the activity was to be held. The ground was cleaned and levelled and all the necessary arrangements were made by the school administration. The Rotary Club provided multiple tree saplings which included Neem, black paper and some apple trees.
The plantation activity started with a pep talk about plantation, given to the students by an expert from the Forestry Department of Pakistan about the importance of trees and how to take care of the planted trees. The students were made sensitive about the fact that in today’s world where we have been exposed to drastic climatic changes like global warming, planting trees is one thing that can save us from it.
Holes were dug and trees were planted by the students along with their teachers and some team members of Rotary Club. The students were given a hands-on demonstration of how to plant the trees. They learnt about the ratio of the mixture of sand, dirt and manure and how to use their feet to press the dirt securely around the tree. They then happily planted 14 of the planned 50 trees.
The day ended with lots of happy faces and dirt filled hands that could be seen in the school ground as some of the students filled the holes and the rest watered the trees and felt proud of it. SLS Schools Managing Director Mrs. Asiya Talha appreciated the students for actively taking part in this activity. She also thanked the President Rotary Club Rwp Mujahid Saleem for providing the students with such useful information and fostering environmental sensitivity in them.
