The Aflatoun day was a memorable event for PEP students. They had been waiting weeks for the big day to arrive, and finally on 17th March students from different schools gathered together in the PEP hall to celebrate what they call, "Aflatoun Day!"
What did this day look like for PEP students
Aflatoun day was special for PEP students because they got to meet with each other from different villages and learned about each other's Aflatoun groups and activities. This was important for the encouragement and inspiration of all students.
Further, the students were shuffled in groups to get them interact and do things together as a team. They were all gathered in the PEP hall where they got to enjoy different activities such as, face painting, hand tracing drawing, and making Aflatoun charts. What fascinated children the most was getting a unique opportunity to skype with the Aflatoun leaders in the Netherland's and Srilanka. The children were slightly nervous, but extremely excited about the idea of getting to talk face to face with new people.
This opportunity was necessary for students as it made a lasting impact on their memories and encouraged them to continue being Aflatoun members.
Finally, to make Aflatoun day memorable, the children marked the celebration by flying air balloons on the PEP terrace and performed a little cake cutting ceremony.
