Student leadership
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.
Science projects
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.

Collaborative event
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.

Apex committee
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.

Budget vs Expenses
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.

Student Leadership

Student Leadership

Mehnaz Fatima Foundation (MFF) is providing opportunities to its students to practice the targeted leadership skills by involving them in multiple committees like library committee, event committee, and assembly committee and so on along with teachers as their facilitators. It is also proposed that students as consumers of education are entitled to participatory rights in managerial processes and practices at the institutions (Obondo, 2000).

This provides students opportunity to learn from their teachers and work on their interpersonal and intrapersonal skills. Every year the process of selection of Head Boy and Head Girl through motivating speeches, colorful posters, and students’ campaign to market themselves followed by referendum is a fascinating exercise. Elected Head Boy and Head Girl represent MFF at different platforms within the school and outside the school. This practice will not only improve the leadership skills of our students but also develops their self-esteem and self-confidence.

This year total 15 contestants from Grade 7th and 8th participated in the competition of Head boy and Head Girl, out of 15 students 4 were selected for the second round considering their motto, level of participation and commitment. This was followed by referendum where all students had the opportunity to vote. The finalist who is elected this year for Head Boy and Head Girl is as follow:

  • Imran Ali (Grade 8) Head Boy

  • Faiza Zafar (Grade 8 ) Head Girl

The students who qualified for the title of House Prefect are:

  • Zain Ali (Grade 8 ) House Prefect

  • Purnoor Sultan (Grade 8) House Prefect

The result was announced on 2nd May in morning assembly presenting Saches by Mr. Abbas the CEO and Ms. Amina Academic Head to the elected students followed by Oath taking ceremony.
