I saw their bright faces filled with passion along with their loved ones.
Function started with prayer chanted by students followed by play games which allow them to practice learned skills. It was amazing to see these kids playing lemon & spoon, find and pick the toys from sand, mix and match vegetables and other athletic activities. Well, I believe these activities will bring enjoyment and improve learning abilities in them. The teachers and parents were the organizers and also participated in various other events.
