Students of all campuses of Sadeeqa’s Learning System (SLS) Montessori and High School observed Cleanliness and Hygiene Week, says a press release.
Montessori to grade 3 students prepared special morning assemblies and did various activities to demonstrate concepts of cleanliness and hygiene.
SLS Montessori, Peshawar Road branch, held a special assembly to emphasise the importance of cleanliness. Students performed a skit showing why it is bad to throw wrappers on the ground. “Bits of paper on the floor make the whole place untidy!” the little students chanted and then proceeded to pick up all the wrappers and throw them in the trash can. A ‘mystery bag’ had everyone’s attention. Students from the audience eagerly participated in getting blindfolded to guess which tools of personal hygiene the mystery bag contained.
Happy and colourful poem presentations on the topic sung by the participants and joined in by the audience were the highlights of the assembly.
SLS, Hali Road Montessori students did a hand-washing exercise to learn the correct way of washing their hands.
A fun guessing game had the students identifying the tool of personal hygiene and matching it with the correct body part. Skits and poems were performed emphasising the effects of littering the environment and not keeping oneself clean. Quotations and short sentences about cleanliness and hygiene were shared by the students driving home the message of the day that a clean home is a happy home and that cleanliness is half of faith.
