Today was the very first day in school for Laraib. She has been admitted in nursery. This was only due to her own enthusiasm and hard work by her mother, who helped her go through all her primary books before taking a tough test from her teachers. I have taken her some snaps before leaving for school, she looks quite confident and happy to be in school uniform. It was a tough ride today. We all went with her today. Roads were mostly empty, only traffic we faced was for school going children. It was a good experience though. She also had a chat with her baba (grandfather) before leaving. He was excited too. He would have liked to drop her himself. At school her teacher (Asifa) took her into her class. She told us that we would have to participate in a Parent-Teacher meeting on Friday. It would be basically a introductory meeting for parents, they would be informed about the procedures of school. We would be looking for that. More would come on these topics in future.
