About The Punjab School
It was in mid 80’s that Syed lhsan Ullah Waqas and Mr Liaqat Baloch, the founder members of The Makkah Foundation and eminent social workers, realized the need for setting up a superior quality school that could provide quality education to the children of indigent and lower middle class at an affordable expense. A piece of land measuring 66 kanals, in a comparatively underdeveloped area of Southern Lahore, was purchased in 1989, by the Foundation from the Department of Housing & Physical Planning, Govt of the Punjab. The ground breaking ceremony of the Foundation’s first educational venture, the Township Campus, was held on 14th August 1990. This School took a modest start with Preschool, Junior & Girls High School In April 1992 and Boys High School in April 1994 in three blocks of single-storey buildings. During the period of nine years, after Its inception, some more philanthropists and social workers joined hands towards promoting this cause that enabled us to add a separate block of Junior School, another storey of preschool, and two floors each of Boys and Girls Schools in addition to constructing a multipurpose hall and a swimming pool.
By 2001, the School had become one of the leading schools of Lahore. Encouraged by this success, the Foundation extended the educational facilities to Kot Khawaja Saeed, another educationally backward area of Northern Lahore. School followed school in quick succession; the third school of the chain, established in Johar Town, went functional in 2007 and the fourth campus in Gujranwala became operational in April 2010. The fifth school of the chain, another a state-of-the-art campus spreading over an area of 52 kanals at went operative in 2013.
Our students have produced commendable results in the matriculation examinations during the past many years. One of our students Ms Asma Masood secured 3rd position in 2004. Achievement in the Year 2005 was epoch-making, when one of our girl students Ms Ayesha Iqbal topped the Board. The results of 2006 were even more historic when one of our students, Muhammad Suhaib Haider Naqvi topped all the eight Education Boards of the Punjab and another luminary, Muhammad Umer Alam, secured 3rd position in Science Group (Boys) in Lahore Board. The Board results of 2007 were no less an achievement, as one of our girl students, Ms Iqra Jalal, secured third position in the Board in Humanities Group. A girl student of the Township Campus got 4th position in 2008, missing 3rd position by just one mark. In 2009, a girl student of the Township Campus got 9th position in Science Group.
