PESHAWAR:


Students of seminaries and government schools should be encouraged to participate in co-curricular activities together to foster tolerance and understanding.


This was said by Peace Education and Development  Foundation Programme Manager Tariq Hayat. He shared these views while speaking to The Express Tribune at an event organised on Wednesday to encourage joint co-curricular activities between students of seminaries and government institutes.

The initiative was organised by PEAD Foundation in collaboration with Unicef Pakistan. A series of competitions were held under ‘Strengthening Social Cohesion and Resilience through Educational Initiatives’.  “Unicef initiated extra-curricular activities in 60 institutes, including 30 madrassas and 30 state-run schools in three districts of the province,” he said. “Around 1,200 students attended the calligraphy and art classes at the event,” he said.
