On this glorious day of Independence, Pakistan School wishes all its fellow compatriots in Bahrain a Happy Independence Day. On this day the school remembers the great sacrifices of martyrs who laid down their lives for a free Pakistan.
It was in the 1960s that leading visionary members of the community realised the need for a schooling system for their children. It led to the establishment of a small primary school in 1968 in a rented building in the Fariq Fadil area of Manama.
After a few years, the school was upgraded to secondary level education following its affiliation with the Federal Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education.
In 1984, Pakistan School’s new campus was constructed in Isa Town, which was inaugurated by His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander and First Deputy Premier.
Two new blocks, Jinnah Block and Sir Sayed Block, were constructed at the Isa Town campus between 1994 and 1995.
Today, Pakistan School has two wings – the primary campus in Manama and the main campus in Isa Town.
Besides Pakistanis, the school is delivering education to more than 2,400 students from 20 different nationalities.
Pakistan School has laid down a well-defined and practical network of extra and co-curricular activities for the personality and character building of students.
These are conducted on inter-class, inter-house and inter-school levels and Pakistani students have been performing well in sports, co-curricular and cultural activities.
Under the loyal, competent and dedicated leadership of the current board of management, Pakistan School has achieved many distinctive landmarks over the last five years in academic and administrative areas.
Pakistan School’s Federal Board results have shown consistent improvement over the last four years and this year’s board exam results of SSC and HSSC declared in the last week of July 2020, are no exception.
Outstanding results for the session 2019-2020 are as follows:
For the secondary school certificate, overall result of science students was 99 per cent and arts 90pc.
Higher secondary school certificate results were at 97pc among pre-medical students, 78pc in pre-engineering, 100pc in commerce and 68pc in humanities.
The school’s financial status is reliable and stable and the system has been fully automated to enhance performance in the spheres of academics, administration and student data compilation.
Solid academic planning and performance have led to an increase in admissions resulting in the setting up of additional facilities and construction of new classrooms.
Pakistan School has earned a name of its own for participation in national, cultural and social festivals.
Students who excel in board exams are awarded scholarships, while the school spends thousands of dinars on fee concessions to support financially weak students.
The sole aim of Pakistan School is to create a new generation, inculcating in them qualities needed to become visionaries in leading their country in the future.
The 74th Pakistan Independence Day celebrations are not being planned on a grand scale this year owing to safety rules following the coronavirus outbreak.
We earnestly pray for the safety of all Bahraini citizens and residents and wish the Kingdom of Bahrain a very happy and prosperous future.
