A colourful ceremony at Public School and College (PSC) to mark its annual day had the audience spellbound on Wednesday.
The event was held to acknowledge position holders in education, sports and arts.
Students presented an enthralling performance of songs and dances. It is widely believed that the establishment of PSC in the early 1980s proved to be a milestone in the region’s history, as over 70% of officials serving in influential positions have graduated from this school.
Lt Col. Javed Aslam, the school principal, said, “Keeping our tradition alive, the students have grabbed all top positions in Secondary School Certificate, Higher Secondary School Certificate and undergraduate examinations this year as well.”
Spread over 100 kanals, the school has over 4,200 students, with separate buildings for girls and boys. The school has around 140 teachers. It has 104 classrooms, three computer labs, eight science labs and a library with over 20,000 books.
The government had announced that it would bear half of the school’s expenditure at the time of its establishment, said a member of the administration. However, today the government bears only 12% of the expenses.
