A visit from Dar ul Sakoon

19 Sep 2015

As the gates of Karachi Grammar School, Middle Section, opened on Saturday, September 19th, 2015 a wave of differently abled happy and excited children from Dar ul Sakoon flowed through. Members of Helpers' Society (Class IX) guided our guests to the Shed. Rohail Hasan (President of the Helpers' Society) gave a most enthusiastic speech and welcomed Dar ul Sakoon to the Middle Section. Sister Ruth was invited to speak about her experiences of helping innumerable unfortunate and innocent children over an uninterrupted and devoted span of 50 years. She graciously acknowledged and applauded the efforts of our students and teachers. The Helpers' Society had organised several activities to make the day a happy and memorable one. In the Shed, our female guests applied mehendi, made clay ornaments, and participated in singing competitions; with voices so sweet, they left us in awe! Meanwhile, the field was filled with boys and girls playing cricket and football. The enthusiastic cheering could be heard across the School. Simultaneously, the less athletic were busy in the Art Room displaying their talents! As some of the artistically inclined expressed themselves on a blank sheet of paper, the rest of the children relaxed in the AV Room, making the most of their time, enjoying an animated movie. Guests and hosts were oblivious to the passage of time or the blistering heat of the day. At 11:00 a.m., the tired but excited children returned to the Shed for snacks and juices. It was heartening to see how our students helped some of our differently abled guests. Eid mementos collected from our generous student body were distributed to the guests as they left the School. The satisfaction that our students derived from giving back to the society cannot be penned - the smiles on their faces and the light in their eyes said it all.
