Book Drive

25 Apr 2016

 Excited chatter filled the domestic science room on Saturday, as dozens of children flipped excitedly through piles of books before categorizing and packing them in brightly decorated boxes. This was the culmination of the “Book Drive”, a weeklong event organized by the Brownies, Junior Scouts and Boy Scouts of the Junior Section, dedicated to promoting literacy.

 

From April 25th to April 29th, children  of the Junior Section were asked to bring new or gently used books and place them in  clearly marked and brightly coloured boxes .The children were generous in their efforts and  donated a variety  of books including  illustrated large-print texts, activity-oriented manuals and popular fiction, as well as books in Urdu.
