International Kangaroo Linguistic Contest was organized for the first time in Pakistan by Kangourou Sans Frontières – Pakistan. The KSF Pakistan brings together the experience of education experts from around the world. It aims to promote a culture of critical and clear thinking as well as good communication skills. The contests provide an international recognition to the school children at a very early stage of their life.
Dawood Public School’s vision is to empower women and develop their capability to be productive citizens of this country. The school has a well-established reputation of producing excellent academic results; and now to further support its students to choose subjects of their interest, the School introduced additional subjects to be offered in ‘O’ and ‘A’ Level, supplementing these with fully equipped labs and an art studio certified by the Cambridge International Examinations (CIE). Furthermore, to encourage a zero-tuition culture, extra classes have been incorporated as part of the daily routine where students will receive appropriate attention to meet their academic needs.
