Testimonials from Teachers, Students, Parents, & Education Officials – Swat Dec. 2013

A Healing Learning and Feeling Festival

“CLFs for the children of Swat were held on 19th and 21st of December, 2013 in the GHSS Kabal and GHS Kanjuschools. I was invited to those festivals and was amazed to see the efforts. It was something very new for us and for children. It works on the hidden qualities of students which is very good from their educational point of view.” (Teacher)

“I attended the CLF Kanju. The session on Story Telling with expressions was a unique experience for me and I learnt how reading could be made more interesting.” (Student-CLF Kanju)

“My expectations from the festival weren’t high when I was invited to the CLF Kanju as I believed it to be an ordinary event similar to other functions that usually happens here. However, at the day of the CLF, I was captivated by the colorful buntings and other decorations at the school….This was the first time ever that I saw such a large number of children enthusiastically participating in a program like this. I am extremely thankful to the organizers of CLF for holding such a program in our area. Without any doubt, such events stimulate the children’s interest in education and tap their hidden potential, bringing out the best in them.” (Parent)

“This was a great experience for me and I believe whoever attended this festival, liked it a lot. Such festivals are crucial for our children’s future as they help in bringing out positive changes in them. The CLF brought awareness in our area pertaining to reading and learning.” (Parent-CLF Kabal)

“I was spellbound by the number of students participating in the CLF Swat from different areas of Swat. Their participation was truly heartwarming….During the role playing session, I was very excited as it felt I was reliving my own childhood and thoroughly enjoyed myself.” (ADO-P&D Ed Official )
