Charity campaign for improvement of education and interpersonal relations
On 22 March 2012, Linguistics Club members of the English Department visited fifth grade pupils of the Elementary School „Hamdija Kreševljaković“ in Stari Grad of Sarajevo. Eighteen pupils were presented bags full of sweet surprises including donated books for the class pupils to learn the English language. Most of the contribution was collected through the charity campaign that was organized among students.
The English Department's students were welcomed by Mr. Salko Huskić, Principal of the School. At the start of the meeting Mr. Huskić expressed his great appreciation for Club's visitation and gifts, and also gave a short presentation about the school and its students.
Dr. Azamat Akbarov, Head of the English Department in his addressing speech, emphasized the role of education in the globalized world and that pupils should strive for the better education. He shortly explained the simplest ways of language learning and becoming competent in foreign language. At the end, Dr. Akbarov and the members of the Linguistics Club thanked Mr. Huskić for a warm welcome and expressed their hope for establishing a closer cooperation in foreseeable future.
This event was covered by daily newspaper Oslobođenje and Hema TV. The TV program will be presented on the 28th of March at 8pm and also available at our YouTube account.
