Mr. Taha Zamir Hussain
Dear Friends, Colleagues, Parents and Pupils,
I would like to pay a wholehearted tribute to all past, present students and staff, who have worked (and are working) for the benefit of a high quality and versatile group of students and their high pinnacles of attainment.
We want FGS to take its place in the society as a leading and innovative school, yet a school that is affordable.
We have introduced a fully computerized information system (EMS) that allows parents, staff and children to view all the information they require, on the click of a button, from the comfort of their homes.
The syllabus that is taught is updated regularly in line with the governing bodies such as IPC, CIE and BISE. However, updating what is taught is not enough; rather how it is taught is important. We have introduced pedagogies, which are currently being used in educationally-advanced countries.
Apart from the curricular, we pay a great deal of attention to co-curricular and extra- curricular activities. We have a calendar full of activities such as indoor and outdoor games, dramatics, gymnastics, yoga, karate, calligraphy and much more.
We have acquired tremendous achievements over the past few years. We have focused on building relations with local and foreign education providers so we may learn from one another. We have a joint venture signed with a Swedish company ‘Nordic Ed’ to set up a chain of high end K-12 schools across Pakistan called Nordic International School. This school will bring a blend of the International Primary Curriculum with a Swedish DNA but local anchorage. We believe that in today’s world we must prepare GLOCAL citizens e.g. global perspective and exposure but anchored locally in their culture.
Moreover, we have initiated a NOT FOR PROFIT Teacher Training Institute called ‘Innovative Teaching Institute’ (ITI) which focuses on an Action Research Model. It encourages teachers to use their classrooms as laboratories, document all progress and then present it in the form of a case study. It provides a platform for teachers to connect with one another, to share best practices and learn from one another.
