In the United States and Canada, a September holiday, called Labor Day, was first proposed in the early 1880s. In 1887, Oregon was the first state of the United States to make it an official public holiday. By the time it became an official federal holiday in 1894, thirty of the fifty U.S. states officially celebrated Labor Day. Thus by 1887 in North America, Labor Day was an established official holiday, but in September, not on May 1. May 1 was chosen to be International Workers' Day to commemorate the 4 May 1886 Haymarket affair in Chicago where the police were trying to disperse a public assembly during a general strike for the eight-hour workday, when an unidentified person threw a bomb at the police. The police responded by firing on the workers, killing four demonstrators. May Day has long been one of the most important holidays in socialistic countries such as the People's Republic of ChinaNorth KoreaCuba and the former Soviet Union. May Day celebrations in these countries typically feature elaborate workforce parades. Today, the majority of countries around the world, including Pakistan, celebrate a workers' day on May 1 to commemorate the social and economic achievements of workers. It is a public and national holiday. All government and non-government organizations, factories and educational institutions remain closed on this day. Currently, it is honored by every single organization in Pakistan to give respect to all those who worked, to those who are working and those who play an essential part in social as well as economic wellbeing of the country and society. Within this context, Oakians were provided reference awareness content to do creative writing – Grade 1 -3 “Why is Labor day celebrated? What new work will  I  do at home on May 1”, Grade 4&5 “What do I think is the value of working ourselves and what new work will I do on May 1”, Grade 6-8 “How can I contribute in adding respect for people who work and what will  I do on May 1 to show that respect”. Pupils of Pre-School enjoyed Yellow color day with Show & Tell activities regarding theme Labor Day.
