Winter in Karachi is a unique phenomenon. It comes too late, goes away too soon and therefore is nothing short of a celebration.
The BHS Montessori planned to savor the beauty of winter with all its perks on Friday, December 22, 2017.
Friday dawned doubly blessed as it was the day of Milad-e-Imam-i-zaman S.A. The children came to school in bright and colourful winter clothes. After Dua, Senior B presented a skit in Urdu on winter. Artificial snow spray brought forth shrieks of delight from the young audience.
During circle-time, children discussed all about winter. They rubbed a little baby lotion on their skin for a hands-on experience of skin-care during winter. They made a Milad Mubarak craft card and did a free-hand drawing on ‘winter makes me think of’.
Once the bonfire was ready, children gathered around the bonfire to enjoy peanuts, marshmallows dipped in chocolate sauce and hot cocoa milk. It was fun to ‘blow and watch it snow’ around the snowman. Janab Shk. Hashim cut the milad cake amid loud and enthusiastic cries of Allahu Akbar, Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin Zindabad and Maula, Maula Mufaddal Maula!
Children went home tired but happy.
