Summer School 2013
Summer school 2013, a new idea, a different approach. Carrying out the same mission and the former vision: to educate, enlighten and inspire. This year TSKL not only enhanced the syllabus for the students who attended the summer program, but the extra- curricular activities too. General Knowledge was an addition to the previously taught subjects, Math and English. This not only gave the students an edge over others before their academic year started but also gave them an opportunity to think outside the box and have a mature and high level of understanding. Following this, in collaboration with Nixor Records, TSKL conducted “Khushi” classes for the students interested in music. We believe that along with sports and art this is a talent which can be worked upon. Every year the students who study in different schools of the Gizri slum wait for the summers to start with a lot of zeal. The reason for this excitement is the number of events held during the four week program starting from orientation, to sports day followed by the talent show and finally, the graduation. We highly encourage this excitement and hence, this year we decided to add some more events which were the milaad and the tree planting program carried out in collaboration with AIESEC, which gave these students a greater chance to learn, enjoy and interact with their peers and teachers. Here at summer school 2013, we believe in carrying out each and every task with our own hands; from cleaning the school to building a positive mindset of the students, because here we have confidence in creating a new start.
