22nd October 1999: The Karachi High School (KHS) recently
launched a comprehensive website for students and parents.
This is yet another step the school has taken to promote
computer literacy amongst their students as well as further
enhancing the schools' standard of education.
website, www.khs.edu.pk offers
various links to educational sites along with school
related information. Both, children and parents can browse
and find links of their interest which range from the
school's hotline to a complete rundown on the institutions'
current activities. Respective grade syllabi, faculty
and administration information and academic achievements
are just some of the few links featured on this attractive
and comprehensive web page. The hotline is of particular
convenience as parents can send in their queries regarding
any school matter and their questions will be answered
via the same channel. This not only facilitates better
communication but also gives parents the assurance that
the school is attentive to parental involvement.
amongst the few schools that encourage students from the
mere age of five to get familiar with the computer. Keeping
in mind the importance of computer knowledge in the present
age, KHS is determined to make all their students
well versed in this field. "We are a laboratory where ideas
from all perspectives are developed, tested, criticized
and disseminated to the wider world. Our mission is to
impart the best possible education which not only make
our children outstanding students but also exceptional
and capable human beings," said Parveen Kassim, Founding
Member and Principal, Karachi High School. "Through
the introduction of computers and now the launch of our
web page, we hope to educate our students more thoroughly
in this field by making learning an enjoyable and smooth
process," she added.
Iqbal, Country Manager, Intel Pakistan, was also
present at the launch ceremony and offered his full support
to the endeavor. "This is the first step towards e-education
and Intel is an avid supporter of promoting computer
awareness at all levels. In order to be prepared for
the approaching century, it is imperative that we make
our children familiar with not only the computer but
also the ever expansive Internet." KHS, a co-educational
institute with about 750 children was founded in 1985.
It follows both the Matric and Cambridge system of teaching
with grades from Kindergarten to O'Levels. Founded with
the aim to impart the best education, KHS has
steadily been building on those very lines.
