Faced with certain limitations in stepping outside Government Girls Postgraduate College, students completed their social work hours by setting up a handcraft exhibition. Undergraduate students showcased decorative items which they had made, some using recycled material, at the exhibition on Sunday.
As social work is mandatory for undergraduate students, the girls had been working on preparing for this exhibition since March 6.
“Since girls can’t go outside for their social work activity, we made a plan to make decoration pieces from waste material,” said Tabassum Majeed, a lecturer of political science. Different groups were assigned with different craft-related tasks while the exhibition was arranged by the social work committee, added Majeed.
Students expressed their delight at seeing their teachers’ interest in their work. “It is encouraging to see teachers visited the stalls and appreciated our effort—this is the first time such an activity has taken place at our college,” said Urooj Khan.
The vice principal and senior librarian both appreciated the enthusiasm with which the students participated.
