FGS Alumni Association or the FGS Old Students’ Society (FOSS) is an independent and legal body that partners FGS and does its best to bring about amelioration in the history of Alumni Relations.
FOSS was initiated in 2014 by a proud old Grammarian, Mr. Asad Jamal Hamayun, who had a firm belief in his heart that he needed to pay back to his alma mater with dedication and hardwork. FOSS is a maverick establishment which is only run by old Grammarians who are the members of the Society. FOSS is solely an entity which caters for the needs of the society, and people related to either FOSS or FGS gather the Alumni’s under one umbrella throughout the globe. FOSS strengthens the basis of the relationship of FGS and all of the Alumni and believes that a long lasting relation is inevitable.
“Forth We Connect” is the fundamental aim of the FOSS and its authorities. It believes that the efforts of the Grammarians will prove to be successful and result in the betterment of the society of Pakistan and all of the people who are related, somehow. FOSS believes that it can act as a platform for everyone to siphon views and ideas of welfare.
It has a wide-spread national and international base, set throughout the internet and with Alumni scattered along the perimeter of the globe that work hard to ensure that no efforts are in vain. FOSS has arranged a highly secure, safe and sound data-base which has the data of over 2000 Alumni that are registered within.
FOSS toils to aid the entire member Alumni with special offers, protection and care under all the programmes and events that are either arranged by the FOSS or FGS. A similar event has been arranged by FOSS in FGS with the permission of the worthy authorities at FGS. The event was a “Concert Night” arranged in October 2014. The night was infused with upbeat songs and FOSS received a ‘pat on the back’ for its stamped success.
The FOSS keeps all the Alumni aware of the activities hosted by FGS and FOSS and allows them to have exclusive participation. The FOSS also promises that there is a well-proportioned chance that it proffers the funding for the Alumni programmes and events. Although, FOSS was created to partner FGS and to pay back the institution with hard work, it has now reached a stage where several boards are launched under it. These boards are bound to put in enormous effort in bringing about a revival in the communitiesthey are head of.
The FOSS now operates whole-heartedly, for all fractions and sectors of the society and is working to end the worldly discriminations.

Ansab Ali – Year 2008 (A’Level)
Four years ago, when I came out of the examination hall after my A level exam from FGS, it was the classic cocktail of elation, jubilation, relief and sadness that I have ever experienced. Little did I know that this would be the end of one of the most amazing periods of my life at this alma mater? I remember coming home that day, my clothes soiled with ink strewn on me during the ensuring festivities (yes, don’t ask……), afraid that my dad would respond in his usual way. However, that day, he said to me, smiling, “Son, today, you are released from the pressure cooker!” I laughed then, but today as I write this; realize that there was truth in his remarks.
When I think back to my time in my school FGS, I remember the carefree days, the fun I had with my classmates, the small ground we spent so much of our time on like it was our very own piece of land where the fun never ended. I remember how we all used to hide out to avoid a test and how we played pranks on classmates. But most of all, I remember the diligent and hardworking teachers who worked so patiently, educating us. Perhaps educate is not the right word here, in that they did so much more than just to educate us. At that delicate and critical junction of our life, we were like molten metal, so malleable that our opinions and personalities could be shaped and swayed by a few emphatic words. It was these teachers, who ensured that when I came out of the school to head on for higher studies, I was a conscientious member of the community who had strong moral values and had a strong sense of responsibility to our society.
Today, I am acting as a research Assistant in Electrical Engineering Department, School of Science and Engineering, Lahore University of Management Science. I graduated with distinction from LUMS with bachelor’s degree in Electric Engineering in June 2012.
I was placed on the Dean’s Honour list for excellent academic performance and was ranked 5th in my badge and 2nd overall in a total of 700 undergraduates. I am currently working on a project involving wireless sensor networks and have already published a scientific paper in an international journal. I intend to apply to various well reputed universities around the world for graduate studies. In that regard, I consider myself extremely lucky that I have been educated by such a dedicated and devoted group of teachers during my school days. I will be indebted to them all my life and I would take this opportunity to thank them once again for enabling me to get to where I am now. Many thanks to my mother institute FGS to elevate me to that status I enjoy at present.
Sidrah Latif – Year 2006 (O’Level)
Let me tell you a story of a girl who was a little shy, and who never wanted to come out of the safe cocoon of her home. This girl did not agree to go to school until she was in class two, whereupon she trudged into the environment that was entirely unknown to her, and so began the journey of the girl who was timid and unsure, who was utterly and even obsessively sensitive and different from others. The journey which expedited her towards the destination of success, happiness, and significantly the destination of courage and confidence to face the world, the mantra to overcome fears, the paradigm to conquer to insecurities, all provided to her by her alma mater, FGS. Now this girl is a medical student about to appear in the professional examination of fourth year MBBS and she has a lot to pressure, a lot to analyze and has a lot to say.
“FGS stood the test of time, and nurtured the little seedlings of yesterday into stalwart, plants of today. FGS you should be proud, for you don’t know but you have really mattered to a web of students, scattered through generations, far and wide, in myriad capacities in the world and all salute you and your services. Be proud, for you did all for these people more than they had done for you.
I feel proud to share my views through this prospectus and to thank my school and my teachers, whom I can’t name lest the pages will fall short of capturing the grandiose phenomenon of their sacred contribution, so these black words are gallant conveyers of my well wishes to my teachers.
One thing that FGS inculcated in me, it was Altapete! (Seek the highest), per aspera ad astra (Through hardships to the stars). If you are lucky enough to still be a student at FGS, tap this foundation head of knowledge, FGS I miss you.
Dr. Hamza Sohail – Year 2005 (A’Level)
I am Dr. Hamza Sohail, currently working as post graduate registrar in Surgical Unit IV D.H.Q. Hospital Faisalabad and I am here only because of the knowledge that my respected teachers of FGS had endowed upon me. I passed my O’Levels in 2003 and A’Levels in 2005 from FGS.
I passed my MBBS examination from Punjab Medical College with 9 medals and 2 College Certificates; with distinctions in Anatomy, Biochemistry, Behavioral Sciences, General Pathology, Forensic Medicine, Community Medicine, Special Pathology, ENT, Medicine, Pediatric, General Surgery, Gynecology and Obstetrics. I topped all professionals not only in my college, but also got position in University of Health Sciences (all over Punjab) in all the 5 professionals, and was awarded best graduate of year 2005-10. Then I cleared FCPS part 1 in June 2012. I have also been selected as Member of European Society of Percutaneous Cardiac Intervention. I will always be grateful to FGS and to my teachers for my successes in life.
Muhammad Adnan Siddique – Year 2003 (A’Level)
I joined this prestigious institution in grade one, as the third child of my family in this school. It was not a difficult decision for my parents, who were already contented with the progress of my elder siblings under the dedicated teaching and administrative staff at FGS.
I acknowledge the keen interest taken by FGS teachers in polishing my talent and grooming me to extract the best from what life has to offer. I have been taking the top position in my class since primary, In CIE O’level examination, I secured seven A grades, and in CIE A’ level examination, I outshined my peers by taking straight 4 A grades (the highest in my batch).
I owe this achievement to my parents, FGS management and the teachers. I take this opportunity to express my heartfelt respect to the Ex Headmaster, Mr. Riaz Ahmed Khan (Late), and Sir, S.M Aleem (Late). They were pinnacles of moral rectitude. They always took personal interest in nurturing the students, helping them to become better human beings.
My passion for engineering took me to PN Engineering College, Karachi under National University of Science and Technology. I graduated in Electronic Engineering in January 2007, winning the president’s Gold medal for being the best graduate of the college. Afterwards, I joined Mobilink, the leading cellular communication company in Pakistan, as a network planner engineer. My desires for higher education urged me to apply for admission in internationally reputed schools of Engineering. I was successful in securing the prestigious Erasmus Mundus Scholarship for two years graduate study. I am holding a teaching / research position at the Computer Vision Research Group, COMSATS institute of IT, Lahore. I often reminisce my days at FGS. I express my earnest gratitude to my teachers and mentors.
Kanza Nadeem – Year 2009 (A’ Level)
Looking down memory lane, I can see flitting images of national holidays celebrations, award ceremonies, Kangaroo Mathematics contests, Spelling Bee Contests, Heart stone Certificates, essay-writing competitions, Eid Celebrations, Milad preparations and all other events that FGS participated with high spirits.
My journey at FGS has been dynamic and thrilling. I began here as a young child of five years and completed my education up to A’levels, never imagining the diverse experience this alma mater will lead me to. The teachers at FGS have always encouraged students to participate in co-curricular activities, increasing their array of experiences while adding to their confidence. I always felt honored and lucky to be able to represent my institute at various forums, including Kangaroo Mathematics, Spelling Bee, Chenab College debates, etc. As a Grammarian, I was awarded “Academic Brilliance Award” for maintaining academic performance throughout my administration (BBA) at my university (National Textile University) while excursing on other pathways of learning.
My excellent grooming in the careful hands of my mentors at FGS was well-reflected in my Global Exchange Scholarship to the USA (2012). I learned the importance of availing every other opportunity at FGS and in doing so, embarked on a journey of educating people in the USA about FGS for improving my knowledge, polishing my personality and imparting most valuable lessons of life to me.
The culture at FGS is imbued with values of honesty, integrity, determination, trust and discipline that have contributed to its success in shaping a responsible and civilized youth. I congratulate the present Grammarians on becoming part of a great institution. I take pride in being part of a stellar network of teachers and students. I wish the best to my institute, its teachers and students for a bright future!

I feel honoured that I studied here from such brilliantly able teachers of FGS.I am thankful to my teachers and my parents for their co-operation and support. May this institute progress more in the world
Muhammad Abdullah – Year 2016 (SSC)
