“Since the onset of Covid-19, the students and parents have been going through a stressful life.” said Imran, General Secretary of the Leeds International Academy. “The students have been turned dumb since Covid and our basic motive behind the funfare was that these two years of stress should be abated through this source of fun.”
He further added, “The funfare has proved a good source of enjoyment for all the students who have participated. This has also helped them to socialise, meet and interact with other students.”
Pertinently, the Students also took a pledge to maintain unity, harmony along with gender equality and cleanliness in Kashmir. Following this, students participated in a funfair organised for them by Leeds International Academy. In the fair students and other visitors enjoyed various delicacies as the event ended on a high note.
