“Gratitude makes sense of our past
Brings peace for today
And creates a vision for tomorrow” – Mary Beattle
Alhumdullillah, the Student Council meetings are very productive every week. The Council Members come prepared with their proposals, produce well written meeting minutes later, and are efficient in assigning tasks to themselves and following up on them. A lot of credit goes here to the respective teachers for grooming their sense of responsibility.
As proposed by the Student Council, the first ever Spirit Week for Ilm Academy will be held in the week after the First Trimester Exams. This will be during December 4-8. The sequence of events for each day have been prepared as follows:
Monday, December 4
For this day, each grade will have its own color. The Student Council has allocated the following colors for the grades. The student can free dress in the assigned color only. Please keep the modesty and properness of the attire in mind even if it is a free dress day.
