Federal Board intermediate Part-I students honour

HSSC Part-I students awarded
Islamabad: The Federal Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education announced the HSSC Part-I Annual Examination results on August 9, 2009. A total of 39,742 students appeared in the examination, out of which 24,512 cleared all papers with a pass percentage of 62%. It takes a lot of commitment and dedication of months on part of students to score good marks. It was stunning performance as for instance the one who topped overall in Pre-Engineering Group secured 516 marks out of 550 (i.e. 94%). Similarly there were students in other groups scoring extraordinary marks as well. There were many students with 500 marks out of 550 which by all means is quite a prolific achievement.

Having said that when it comes to rewarding these star performers, the concerned authorities gave only a small amount of money. The students who stood first, second and third were awarded with cash prizes of only Rs10,000, Rs7,000 and Rs5,000 respectively. The incentive has to be much better than these meagre amounts as out of over 39,000 students, securing top positions is no mean feat.

German Embassy Deputy Head of Mission Stephan Roken was the chief guest on the occasion. Goethe Institute (Pakistan) Director Dr. Markuz Litz, RSS directors Khadija Omair, Faisal Mushtaq, Walid Mushtaq and Founder Director Mrs. Riffat Mushtaq were also present on the occasion.

Addressing the opening ceremony, RSS Director Khadija Omair said that they were pleased to introduce the German language programme at Roots, as understanding languages is the need of today's world to be able to contribute towards global peace and harmony. She said: "It will provide our students opportunities of learning how to live in a global community and this language programme will play a vital role in enabling us to do so. This initiative will thus extend students' skills preparing them for study in Germany and a subsequent career," she added.

Students of the Roots School System, who recently visited Germany for summer youth programme, shared their views and experiences about their stay in Germany during the ceremony.

They said that at the camp they had the opportunity to interact with students of other countries. They said that they attended German classes (beginner's level) in the morning and excursions were arranged in the afternoon.

Rootsians also participated in the International Youth Camp in Germany and introduced their beautiful country, its culture, people, customs, cuisine and folklore to students of 20 other countries.

They said that students of other countries were fascinated to see the presentation on Pakistani culture and they spared no moment to educate them on Pakistan and its people. They also competed in different competitions and clinched best performance awards too.

They said that it was an ideal opportunity for them to represent their country, as effective ambassadors and in fact they forged friendship with so many diverse groups of students from all around the world.

Meanwhile, the German language programme will provide students an opportunity to build up a bond with the German culture and familiarise themselves with the German education system by participating in integrated German lessons at the RSS.

After the opening ceremony, the delegates visited the German language class and interacted with students and teachers.
