DPS Festival of Lights Illuminates Hope in People

Dawood Public School (DPS) organized “DPS Festival of Lights”, a fundraising event full of shimmering lights and unique illuminated artifacts. The fun-filled festival aims to generate funds that will help the deserving patients visiting Lady Dufferin Hospital. DPS Festival of Lights is sponsored by Engro Foundation whereas Karachi School of Business and Leadership (KSBL) assisted as social outreach partner of the event. The festival was similar to its international counterparts with shows, fireworks, food stalls and much more.

The school transformed itself for the festival and mesmerized visitors with displays made of various lights. Each of the school marked its presence with an extraordinary display including stick-men made of lights and giant flowers made out of LEDs!

One of the main attraction at the festival was children’s ‘Olper’s Light Parade’. Groups of little girls appeared with glittering costumes, followed by lit-up hula-hoops, aeroplanes, and other decorated ornaments that added more colours to the cavalcade. The well decorated truck carrying a fairy princess reigned the parade. The fairy princess was attired in a specially designed “fairy costume” made entirely of elegant purple LEDs with white LED light wings.
The festival had numerous fascinating performances including Tron Dance by Shehzad Danger Crew and a thrilling fire performance. DPS students had several stalls that engaged visitors in constant bargain hunting for various delicious snacks and fun games. The activity aimed to teach children how to interact with people and make transactions in real life.

Sharing her excitement to be part of this activity Rabail Soomro of Class 8 said ‘DPS Festival of Lights is a great platform for the students to hone their entrepreneurial skills. From coming up with business ideas to making marketing strategy to grab customers attention at the event gave all of us to use our limited resources in a creative way.’ ‘The best part of the festival is that we will be helping deserving patients through the proceeds, this is how we would like to play our part in the cause.’
The spirit of helping others was at its peak throughout the festival. Volunteering parents helped eager blood donors at Indus Hospital blood donation camp.
