Oral Examination:
English, Urdu poetry and Islamic / Quranic verses have been added to the syllabus aiming to develop and augment the memorizing capability of students as well as to impart them to practice of perfect pronunciations and to introduce them to the poetic values and appreciation of literary work. Mental mathematics has also been added to the oral examination to develop concept building capabilities in our young budding minds. Every year in the first / second / third examination the oral examination will be conducted separately. It is obligatory for all the students to take and pass the oral examination.

Extra Curricular Activities:
A student is the pioneer of all activities in all fields of life. Therefore, in order to obtain this vital target our students should not only be kept inside class rooms for the knowledge of the syllabus but we consider it our utmost responsibility to bring out the creativity out of every student. For the fulfillment of this purpose debate competition, milad and art exhibition are regularly held within the school premises.

Fee Payment:
The monthly fee is payable in advance by the 10th of every month. Failing to which a fine will be charged till the last day of the month (which is mentioned as the voucher expiry date on the fee voucher). Once the voucher has expired, the name of the student will be struck off the register without any further notification what so ever. We expect all parents to cooperate with the respective campus’s accounts department as we consider tuition fee to be a minor issue and do not expect the student/child to get involved.

Meeting Time With The Principal: Please note that the meeting time with the principal is 10 am to 12 noon (Monday to Friday). Any parents coming to school before or after the said timings shall not be entertained in this regard. We expect full cooperation from all parents/guardians as these steps are only being taken keeping in view the current security situation of educational institutions in the country and for the absolute well being of your child. Moreover, when coming to visit the school, please do not forget to bring your original CNIC as you will be asked to deposit it at the main gate which you may take it upon leaving the school premises.
