Pakistan Day is a very unique and significant day for every Muslim in the subcontinent.
Celebrated every year on March 23, it commemorates the adoption of the Pakistan Resolution in 1940 in Lahore.
The resolution stands for social justice, religious harmony, economic parity, legal protection, cultural tolerance, an enlightened vision of the future, elimination of ethnic and religious differences, and, above all, a patriotic fervour to espouse these ideals.
On this great day, Pakistan School sends its best wishes to all its fellow compatriots in Bahrain.
The school encourages its fellow Pakistanis to salute and remember the sacrifices and sufferings of everyone involved in this great achievement.
The genesis of Pakistan School goes back to the latter part of the 1960s when leading visionary members of the community realised the need for a schooling system for their children.
This 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 upgraded to secondary-level education following its affiliation with the Federal Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education, Islamabad, Pakistan.
In 1984, the school’s new campus was built in Isa Town, and inaugurated by His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince Prime Minister.
Two new blocks, Jinnah Block and Sir Sayed Block, were added between 1994 and 1995.
Today, Pakistan School has two wings – the primary campus in Manama and the main campus in Isa Town, delivering quality education to students of 20 different nationalities.
Besides Pakistanis, around 800 Bahraini students are on roll, which is an indicator of the quality of education offered and the Bahraini community’s trust in the school.
Pakistan School has laid down a well-defined and practical network of extra and co-curricular activities for personality and character-building of the students. These activities are conducted on inter-class, inter-house and inter-school levels and Pakistani students have been performing tremendously in sports, co-curricular and cultural activities.
In the last five years, the school has made tremendous progress in all spheres including the professional development of its faculty, construction, renovation and maintenance work, as well as the addition of huge infrastructure and modern facilities.
It is the first non-Bahraini private school in Bahrain to introduce Arabic as a compulsory subject as part of its curriculum for all classes.
An Islamic Centre has been established to create a generation equipped with the right knowledge of Islam.
The board of management has been contributing immensely to the progress and development of the school, working relentlessly to bring all possible improvements to the school’s system and to facilitate students, parents and staff in the best possible ways.
Last year, with the sudden outbreak of Covid-19, in-school teaching and learning activities were suspended for the health and safety of all and the school began devising effective strategies to facilitate and keep imparting quality education online.
All available platforms for online teaching were analysed and the most suitable ones were adopted as means for effective daily live lectures.
Licensed versions of online teaching platforms were brought into practice and new and high-quality computers were purchased immediately to ensure uninterrupted and effective continuity of online teaching.
The school has constantly kept in touch with all students and parents through the school’s official website, Google Classroom and 24/7 official WhatsApp numbers to bridge the distance brought about by the pandemic.
Relentless efforts were made and effective and feasible strategies were devised to complete the entire session successfully without unnecessary breaks.
Pakistan School has earned a name of its own for participation in national, cultural and social festivals to strengthen the bond of its deep love and affiliation with Bahrain.
Besides imparting quality education, Pakistan School keeps working hard to inculcate leadership qualities, a sense of responsibility and independence in students for their bright future.
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.
