The key theme of the program was Inclusive Education, Value formation, Care for children with special needs and role of parents, which was excellently represented by shining stars of MFEWO through colorful performances. This report will discuss the underlying key themes of the event. The event will be updated on the official website of the organization, mehnazfatima.org
MFEWO introduced practicing Student Leadership to develop and improve multiple skills. The event was entirely organized by the students and this has been highly appreciated by the Parents. The Secretary Education also highlighted this unique feature of the organization by referring to the students’ active involvement in the program and maintaining discipline.
APD is always an opportunity to represent the academic excellence of the organization achieved so far and it gives great opportunity to the students to show their cognitive development. Continuing this practice student arranged a science exhibition guided by their teachers. The exhibition demonstrated emerging issues like environmental degradation, technology and cultural diversity. Guests enjoyed the exhibition and appreciated.
The entire performances were based on different themes. Each item gave a message to the audience. Parent’s applause was worth seeing. The very young children of Reception class performed on the stage which was appreciated by the parents.
The APD was a collaborative event of CICD and Montessori School. They both shared the budget and performances giving the impression of one unit working for same mission and cause. One of the main features of the event was the peach of a parent attending Nomal CBRRC. His speech was so touching while telling the audience about changes brought in his child by the intervention of CICD. The entire gathering became very emotional and started crying.
The event was planned and designed under the guidance of the CEO. He constituted apex committee headed by Academic Head Ms. Amina Baig to supervise the overall activities and its arrangements which resulted in well-organized APD.

The expenses made in a prudent way due to which we remained within the given budget. We gave a foolproof security to the public with the help of the Administration who deputed security personal and installed walk through gates.
