FJWU displays works of 43 Computer Arts students
Rawalpindi: Fatima Jinnah Women University (FJWU) on Wednesday displayed theses of the BSc (Computer Arts) students.

FJWU Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Saeeda Asadullah Khan was the chief guest of the function at the Fine Arts building, where a large number of students and faculty members turned up.

The dissertations, an outcome of four-year studies of 43 BSc (CA) students of session 2004-2008 as a part of their degree requirements, demonstrate imagination, innovation and passionate outlook of youth. The students belonged to the disciplines of Photography, Textile, Graphic Designing, 3D Animation, 2D Animation, Book Illustration and Documentary.

CA Department's Chairwoman Zarin Gul and faculty members Ahlam Tariq, Darakhshan Batool, Afshan Jamal, Amir Azad, Kashif Imran, Taqi Shaheen, Lubna Yasmeen, Masood Hussain, Hina Ali, Ghulam Nasra, Naureen Mumtaz, Rabia Zia, Fatima Mazhar and Maria Rehman supervised preparation of the theses.

Saira Nawab, a student, displayed photographic works on the fusion of mosque architecture and Arabic calligraphy. She combined observation, skills and symbolism in her attention-grabbing pieces. She says there's a need for promoting traditional Islamic architecture.

Many others have attempted to create public awareness of various issues by using their graphic designing skills. Iman Bulland, Sadia Anwar and Saira Arif are one of them. The three have done Anti-Corruption Awareness Campaign, Illegal Immigration Awareness Campaign and Dengue Fever Awareness Campaign.

Another beautiful thesis has been done on 'Curse Thy Name is Dowry' by Sana Nayab. Sana's works are very powerful and hold attention of the viewers.

She said dowry was a curse, which could be fought through public awareness. She said the purpose of her works was to make people more aware of the fact that dowry was a social ill. She said every citizen would have to play his/her responsibilities to free society from the menace of dowry.

FJWU VC Prof Dr Saeeda Asadullah Khan appreciated the works of the students.

"Every piece is a wonderful portal of imagination and a benchmark in innovation and digital creativity. The students have used an attractive combination of colours and creativeness to express their thoughts and emotions," she said. Daily Times

172 schools without head teachers in Pindi district
Rawalpindi: About 172 schools are without heads in the district, sources said on Wednesday. Overall, 3,328 vacancies are to be filled in Punjab government schools, 411 of which are in Grade 17 and above. Primary and secondary schools are short of 2,626 teachers and Qaris. There are 224 primary schools for girls and 206 for boys in Rawalpindi tehsil; 276 for girls and 184 for boys in Gujar Khan; 112 for boys and 108 for girls in Murree; 101 for girls and 70 for boys in Kalar Syedan; 110 for girls and 84 for boys in Kahuta; 48 for boys and 31 for girls in Taxila and 83 for girls and 67 for boys in Kotli Sattian. There are 45 middle schools for girls and 36 for boys in Rawalpindi tehsil; 49 for girls and 31 for boys in Gujar Khan; 12 for girls and 13 for boys in Murree; 17 for girls and 11 for boys in Kalar Syedan; 14 for boys and nine for girls in Kahuta; nine for boys and five for girls in Taxila and 11 for girls and nine for boys in Kotli Sattian. Only one out of 11 schools has a head in Kotli Sattian, says a source. Mohammad Shafiq Bhawalia, Punjab Senior Elementary Science Teachers' Association additional president, said it was hard for senior teachers to manage a school without a head. He said the federal and provincial governments had failed to improve the standard of education, demanding promotion to executive grades for senior schoolteachers.

Executive District Officer (Education) Chaudhary Muhammad Yousaf said no vacancies were left unfilled in schools in urban areas though there was a shortage of teachers in the rural areas. He said around 950 teachers were recruited in 2006 and almost an equal number of teachers was transferred or retired over the last two years. He said the Punjab government planned to unban new recruitment and hopefully all vacancies in the education department would be filled shortly. He said schools would be running smoothly if they got 50 percent of the strength required. Naseem Altaf, the district education officer (Elementary-Female), said shortage of teachers had affected female schools the most in rural areas. She said teachers were sent to rural areas from cities to fill this gap but then they managed to come back using political mileage. She said a woman teacher from an urban area did not want to stay in a rural school even for one day. Mehboob Sada, an educationist, said the Punjab Education Department should change recruitment criteria. Daily Times
