City School Academic Expo 2010 | Spring vacations

City School holds Academic Expo 2010
Islamabad, April 01: The City School hosted a mega event titled 'Academic Expo 2010' at the International Islamic University, Faisal Mosque Campus, on the theme of 'Resources through Recycling'.

In the expo, around 900 students practically demonstrated the use of teacher-made resources within a span of four hours for 2,000 visitors.

Recycling is not only beneficial for the earth but also for teaching, as it ensures better understanding to students through innovative teaching resources. The displays projected all facets of learning, encompassing the curriculum of Kindergarten to Primary Five levels in all subjects.

Sub-Committee of Environment on Climate Change Chairperson Marvi Memon was the chief guest on the occasion. She appreciated the efforts of the management of the City School in Islamabad, especially Regional Director Safia Cassim and Regional Academic Coordinator Safinaz Adnan, for taking the initiative and bringing together four branches - F-8 Nursery, F-11 Junior, Capital Junior I and Capital Junior II - which collectively put together a major event.

April Fool's Day: Dodge pranksters or they will dodge you
Islamabad: Beware folks today is April Fool's Day so be on your toes and mentally alert for unforeseen pranks, practical jokes and other forms of mischief. Some people love to spend days thinking up gags to pull on their friends and family, while others love a little impromptu prank here and there. On the day, most people, especially youngsters, make fun of others by telling fake stories and hitting them with practical jokes.

The day has assumed the shape of the 'funniest day' of the year in some countries, as people send greetings, jokes and exchange funny SMSs to their. Unlike most of the other non-foolish holidays, the history of April Fool's Day, sometimes called All Fool's Day, is not totally clear.

The closest point in time that can be identified as the beginning of this tradition was in 1582, in France. Prior to that year, the New Year was celebrated for eight days, beginning on March 25.

However, communications being what they were in the days when news traveled by foot, many people did not receive the news for several years.

Others, the more obstinate crowd, refused to accept the new calendar and continued to celebrate the New Year on April 1.

The general populace labeled these backward folk as "fools". They were subject to some ridicule, and were often sent on "fools errands" or were made the butt of other practical jokes.

This harassment evolved, over time, into a tradition of prank playing on the first day of April. The tradition eventually spread to England and Scotland in the eighteenth century.

April Fool's Day thus developed into an international fun-festival, so to speak, with different nationalities specializing in their own brand of humor at the expense of their friends and families.

In Scotland, for example, April Fool's Day is actually celebrated for two days. The second day is devoted to pranks involving the posterior region of the body. It is called Taily Day. Practical jokes are a common practice on April Fool's Day. Sometimes, elaborate practical jokes are played on friends or relatives that last the entire day.

The news media even gets involved. For instance, a British short film once shown on April Fool's Day was a fairly detailed documentary about "spaghetti farmers" and how they harvest their crop from the spaghetti trees.

April Fool's Day is a "for-fun-only" observance. Nobody is expected to buy gifts or to take their "significant other" out to eat in a fancy restaurant.

Nobody gets off work or school. It's simply a fun little holiday in most part of the world, but a holiday on which one must remain forever vigilant, for he may be the next April Fool. Beware!. Daily times
