ISLAMABAD: Finance Minister, Miftah Ismail here on Friday said that providing opportunities to young students to actively participate in extracurricular activities gives a boost to their learning skills and confidence, and serves as an asset for them in their future career building.
The minister gave these comments while visiting the Arts and Crafts exhibition, themed “Learning with creativity” at the EMS, a reputed educational institution of Islamabad.
The minister went round various sections of the exhibition where art, literary work, scientific exhibits (including robots), literary work and articulately carved models depicting various events in world history were displayed.
