The Financial Daily - - NATIONAL -

KARACHI: Da­wood Pub­lic School, a well­renowned and lead­ing girls' school in Karachi, es­tab­lished over 30 years ago, wel­comed the new batch of A-Level stu­dents with a sub­stan­tially en­hanced pro­gram, as an­nounced at an ori­en­ta­tion for stu­dents and par­ents. The unique fea­ture of the pro­gram is mea­sures to elim­i­nate the need for tu­itions, which has be­come a com­mon prac­tice oth­er­wise. These in­clude sub­ject sup­port classes men­tored by se­nior stu­dents and con­ducted by ex­pe­ri­enced teach­ers to pro­vide ex­tra time for stu­dents who re­quire fur­ther un­der­stand­ing of a sub­ject.

The school has started the new aca­demic year on the back of ex­cel­lent re­sults of the pre­vi­ous A-Level batch, in which 23.75 % A*s and A's from a batch of 60 stu­dents. More­over, the school opens its gates for the new A-Level batch with new ini­tia­tives be­ing in­tro­duced to fa­cil­i­tate stu­dents both aca­dem­i­cally as well as so­cially. The school in­tro­duced sub­jects like English Lan­guage, Lit­er­a­ture and World His­tory last year, which only a few schools of­fer in A-Level as a full fledged module. New clubs and so­ci­eties have been cre­ated in­clud­ing Read­ing Club, Art & De­sign Club, Yoga/Skating so­ci­ety to pro­mote ex­tracur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties in its stu­dents cater­ing to their interests.

Com­ment­ing on these new de­vel­op­ments, the school Prin­ci­pal Ms. Huma Thaver said, "The level of com­pe­ti­tion among stu­dents this year was very high. We got about 130 en­tries for ap­pli­cants into the A Level pro­gram from across all schools in the city but only hand­pick the best. Our new batch in­cludes stu­dents with 21% A*s and 40% As. Our vi­sion is to em­power these young girls to be­come pro­duc­tive cit­i­zens of our so­ci­ety. -PR
