Gul, Akhoon Guests Of Honour
Srinagar, Sep 30: Centenary celebration of once reputed Imamia School, Zadibal was held today with local MLA Mubarak Gul and Minister of Consumer Affairs Qamar Ali Akhoon as star attractions.
Speaking on the occasion Akhoon impressed upon one and all to strive for peace which is essential for progress and prosperity.
MLA Eidgah Mubarak Gul was the chief guest on the occasion.
Akhoon said that education was the only tool to crack every nut of success and parents as well as teachers should put in their energy in shaping the fortune of their children so that the new generation would face the challenges bravely on global level.
Referring to the historical background of Imamia High School, Akhoon paid rich tributes to late Jalali Sahib for laying the foundation of the school in 1910 and also for spreading the knowledge among the illiterate masses of those times.
The Minister assured of all possible help from the government for making the school a highest seat of learning.
Mubarak Gul on the occasion appealed the school administration to inculcate not only spiritual and religious sentiments among children but also make them shine in academics and sports activities.
Gul further said that the state government was always on the back of such schools where great people have obtained knowledge and have touched the skies of success. He asked school authorities to approach the government for any assistance and support they need at any point of time. He said that in modern times skill development among youth was essential so that self-employment opportunities are created and un-employment problem is controlled to some extent.
He appealed the J&K Bank authorities to provide financial support to any private school of downtown where the management was doing its best to excel and secure highest position in academics and extra-curricular activities.
The students of the school mesmerized the audience with a couple of melodious songs depicting the love for human beings and nature.
