FDE to award scholarships to 500 outstanding students
Islamabad, April 27: As many as 500 students of middle and matriculation level will get scholarship on merit under the centralised system of examination, conducted by Federal Directorate of Education (FDE) this year. "The scholarship will be provided to students of Islamabad Model Colleges (IMCs) and private institutions," official sources told this agency on Saturday.

They said that these scholarships would be given purely on the basis of merit of results in the centralised primary and middle level examinations held under the FDE. The sources informed that a total of 16,692 students of 5th class and 2,484 students of 8th class had appeared in the exams held under the directorate this year.

It is compulsory for the students of class five to appear in the examinations organised by the FDE, while for the students of 8th class it was not compulsory, they added.

About 300 top students, including 150 girl students, of middle classes will get a scholarship amounting to Rs200 on monthly basis for a period of three years. While100 boys of SSC and as many number of girl students will get Rs300 for a period of two years.

The students whose names were announced for scholarships last year would get cheques for within two weeks, the sources added.

The scheme to award scholarships was launched a few years back and as a whole, 1300 students benefit from it every year. About Rs1.3 million are

being given annually under the scheme.

The sources said that the introduction of centralised exams had created a sense of competition among teachers and students of different institutions and a noticeable change could be seen in the results of schools and model colleges. The News

Female lecturers demand regularisation of service
Rawalpindi: Lecturers of Rawalpindi's eight women degree colleges have appealed to the Punjab Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif to regularise their services, as they were working on contract basis for over 10 years, says a press release issued here Saturday.

Some lecturers met local PML-N MPA Shehryar Riaz to discuss the issue. The MPA assured the lecturers that he would take up the matter with the chief minister and hoped that it would be resolved soon.

It is worth mentioning here that on the orders of the Supreme Court of Pakistan the jobs of as many as 94 lecturers working on ad-hoc basis were regularised.

The women lecturers have been fighting their case with previous governments as well but to no avail. However, they feel the government of Mian Shahbaz Sharif will hear their grievances and hoped that their jobs would be regularised.

The eight women degree colleges in which the lecturers are working on contract basis are: Govt Degree College for Women, Mohanpura, Govt Degree College for Women, Dhoke Hassu, Govt Degree College for Women Milad Nagar, Govt Degree College for Women, F-Block Satellite town, Govt Degree College for Women, B-Block Satellite town, Govt Degree College for Women, Zafar-ul-Haq Road, Govt Degree College for Women, Dhoke Elahi Baksh, Govt Degree College for Women, Muslim Town.

CB College holds get together
Islamabad: The fact that if someone is dedicated to a cause, it will eventually pay dividends, was proved when more than a hundred alumni of the Cantonment Board (CB) College, Rawalpindi turned up for the annual get-together held at the Islamabad Club here recently.

This was the biggest turnout since Tahmeena Malik began to organise the reunion a few years ago and shows that the idea of having a yearly get together is a pleasant way to get old friends and acquaintances together.

Remembering and reminiscing about what most people say are 'the best years' of their lives and meeting up with fellow students that you don't meet in the every day course of your life promotes goodwill, friendship and understanding. Who knows, in these meetings, while renewing old friendships, new ones could be formed that could lead to a satisfactory relationship.

Anyways, as usual, there were some latecomers - a few had the genuine excuse of it being a working day and they could only come after office hours; others came late by habit but on the whole, the time frame of arrival was kept to within half an hour of that stated on the invitation - an awful time, I must say, as these days at 4pm, it's the middle of the afternoon - but I guess, it was set after keeping in mind late arrivals.

The screams of delight at meeting after years, hugs and kisses and of course, the usual 'You haven't changed a bit' statements are usual, which make you feel good but you know they are not true! First time attendee, Farah Usman, was quite frank and admitted she had not been able to recognise anyone until they introduced themselves. "They have all changed so much", she said, "but I'm happy to meet them. Now we will keep in touch and form a smaller group to meet more often." It was noticed that they were all taking down each others' telephone numbers - now it remains to be seen whether they keep in touch or not.

Addressing the gathering - without a mike because the club was charging too much for it, as was announced amidst laughter - Tahmeena Malik welcomed everyone and admitted she was 'delighted' at the good turnout, as it made the effort worthwhile. Adding that while she had been happy to arrange the reunion and tried to make it a tradition, it was turning into too much of a difficult task and threatened of not doing it next year unless she had some help. There were a few volunteers but whether they offer any help still remains to be seen and I'm sure Tahmeena was non-serious about not making the effort any more!

Activist Farzana Bari also spoke on the occasion but her words were lost because conversation erupted as soon as one speech was over, as she warned about Talibanisation and urged the women to work with various NGO's like those for human rights etc, to ward off the threat - I don't think anyone was in a mood to listen to anything serious on this joyful occasion.

In the end, refreshments were served and many photographs were taken - everyone it seems nowadays has a digital camera or a mobile phone capable of taking pictures that become treasured keepsakes of happy moments like this one was.
