Be Nishatian … Be SuccessfulPrincipal Zafar Hussain
Warm and Caring Start
• Nishat Boys High School provides a wonderful education for pupils. Children achieve academically but yet are nurtured and recognized for their own unique talents. We are delighted to extend our Early Years school provision for 3 - 4 year olds in our new play group and nursery classes. Special attention is given to the kids of these classes. They are taught with a novel and interesting techniques to sharpen their inclination towards studies. Nishat Boys High School’s Junior Section offers children a secure environment in which they are made capable to learn and socially develop at their individual pace. “We teach individuals and not classes” is the ethos of Nishat Group and this philosophy has its roots firmly embedded in our Junior Section.
Innovating Teaching to Engage Young Minds
Nishat Boys High School’s Junior Section is housed in a purpose built building, designed specifically for Early Years education. The classrooms boast the latest teaching resources and the designated environmental / activity area has been designed to create a wonderful learning environment for all the children in the School. We value the importance of indoor learning enormously and the children are highly encouraged to explore their talent and instinctive inclination with utmost serenity and tranquility of mind. The classrooms of Junior Section also offer a fantastic opportunity to the kids to get mental and physical entertainment. The School also boasts an outdoor adventure playing area as well.
The Learning Environment
Once you get inside the secure school perimeter, you can appreciate in full the school's setting. With nearly 6 kanals of land and a covered area of 120,000 sq ft., we possess adventure play areas, an environmental/activity area and several sitting places. The classrooms are bright, super cute, cheery and beautifully designed whilst the walls are decorated with inspiring displays of creativity. The school is equipped with interactive whiteboards and other necessary audio visual aids.
Happy, Healthy & Safe
We want all our children to thrive in an environment where they feel happy, safe and secure. We believe that the more resilient, resourceful and reflective they become, the more this helps them enjoy learning so that they may develop into resourceful, confident and independent individuals. We promote a healthy lifestyle by providing hygienic and nutritious food stuff to the students at the canteens, and by facilitating them with pure and filtered water throughout the day. We encourage our oldest children to become responsible members of our community and to help our younger children. They act as role models around the school. We do our utmost to make it easy for children to approach the staff with any problems and we teach that bullying is never acceptable behaviour.
This good practice continues in our Play Group classes where we encourage each child to develop a capacity for independent thought and self-expression. We provide a balance of activities designed to stimulate their imagination and natural inquisitiveness – something that, in turn, helps to develop their self-confidence and love of learning.
Nurturing Begins in Our Nursery
The Little Ducklings Nursery is one of our greatest assets. We stimulate our children’s natural curiosity, nurture their capacity to learn and enable them to form relationships and to express themselves as individuals. Our junior students are taught in a variety of settings so that our children may benefit from working within both banded and mixed ability groups. We have a long established tradition of recognizing individual needs and by creating special ability groups. We enable all our children to realize their full potential. Throughout the latter stages of our children’s education, we continue to nurture their development. All subjects of the National Curriculum are enhanced by cross-curricular study, workshops and planned activities.
A student’s performance is measured through different scales like class work, homework, round tests, terminal & annual examinations. Surprise class tests are the basic components of our assessment system to assess and encourage the hidden capabilities of the students.
Homework is considered to be the backbone of Assessment System as it promotes the students’ capabilities of doing task assigned by utilizing their creative skills in an organized way.
Quiz programs are also organized to check the students’ I.Q. level and their approach towards academic syllabus. Round tests are also conducted to prepare the students for terminal examinations. Syllabus is divided into different segments among all the round tests.
Students are promoted to next class on their achieved passing percentage (50% in each subject). In annual examinations, top three position holders are rewarded with merit certificates along with the trophies and prizes while other top ten students are rewarded with different kinds of prizes. In regular terminal examinations, top ten students are rewarded with different kinds of prizes. Students always remain very conscious of the kind of prize given in every terminal examination for which they work very hard.
Monthly attendance reports are given to each and every student, and the students are asked to get them signed necessarily by their parents. The main purpose of this exercise is to make sure that students don’t bluff their parents by absenting themselves from the campus and to develop a sense of responsibility and awareness regarding attendance among them. This report clearly shows the attendance percentage of the students. In this way, parents are informed of the regularity of their child every month.
Homework plays a vital role in upgrading the students’ abilities and capabilities. Homework is based on classwork so that the students may complete their task easily on their own at home. Assigned homework of all the subjects is divided equally in the working days of the week. The homework of English, Urdu and Mathematics is assigned on daily basis while the homework of other subjects is assigned on alternate days. Parents can easily have a view of syllabus / classwork covered through home task assigned, and can help their child in learning the material.
• Re-checkers & Super re-checkers inspect the material taught in the class by the class teachers. • Academic Coordinators play a vital role in internal inspection. They are properly trained & experienced for this purpose. It is their prior duty to submit the report of daily performance of the teachers to the Principal at the end of each day. • In the end, the Principal super-checks the work of the class teachers, checkers, helpers, re-checkers, Super re-checkers, and even the coordinators’ performance is also inspected keenly.
The Director forms an Inspection Team on his own. The team is authorized to inspect any Branch at any time. It is the premier duty of the team to present the actual report on the basis of facts and figures in order to ensure the quality of education.
Progress of a child is the result of collective efforts of the teachers as well as of the parents. Institute bears the responsibility to make the parents informed of the progress of their child. Every result of terminal examinations is checked and signed by the Chief Executive, and then progress reports are given to the students to get them signed necessarily by their parents. Solved answer sheets are also given back to the students to let them know their mistakes and causes of failure. Parents can easily approach the teachers and administration by visiting Campus Office during the Campus timings to discuss the academic condition of their child. Progress reports are to be signed and returned by the parents/guardians within two days from the date of issuance.
Round /Grand Test Reports
Round /Grand Tests are given before the terminal examinations to prepare the students for them. Since these tests are at gross root level, students get an ample opportunity to ask questions about different topics during the revision of the assigned syllabus. The result cards of the Round / Grand Tests are mailed directly to the parents so that they may observe the performance of their child in the class on regular basis. Progress reports are to be signed and returned by the parents/guardians within two days from the date of issuance.
At Nishat Boys High School, different teaching strategies are exercised like group discussions, educational activities, emphasis on writing skills, working on science projects, research skills building and knowledge & ideas sharing. Key skills and different educational techniques are exercised in various classes to enable the students to proceed towards the level of comprehension and competence. In an English medium institute, it is compulsory to make the student speak English fluently and unhesitatingly in the presence of his teachers and other fellow students. If the students feel reluctance in speaking English confidently, parents are required to provide them with friendly environment to promote and enrich their spoken skills.
Parent Teacher Meeting
Every child’s achievements are celebrated through individual learning journals which monitor each child’s progress and are shared with parents on a regular basis. Parents play a vital role in the education of their child. Strong communication link between parents and teachers is of key importance if children are to reach their true potential. Parent teacher meeting is one of the prominent features of the academic activities of the institute. This activity is frequently exercised specially during the round tests and terminal examinations. During these meetings, the parents get informed of the academic performance of their kids. Their drawbacks in performance are vividly discussed during these meetings. Various strategies are devised in this regard by both the teachers and the parents. The consistent link between the teachers and the parents makes the students utterly involved in their studies. This frequent process has positive and productive effect on the students by making them alert, responsible and profoundly involved in their studies. Meetings are arranged in a quite serene environment with sumptuous high-tea. Parents can easily have a view of syllabus / classwork covered through home task assigned, and can help their child in learning the material.
Special Communication with Parents
In the most exceptional circumstances, parents can contact the relevant coordinator to arrange an individual Parent Teacher meeting during and after the school hours. We hold special parent consultations and the teacher is readily available at other times if the need arises to discuss their child. The Administration of Nishat Boys High School strongly suggests that parents must benefit this facility by discussing the academic condition of their child which will definitely prove helpful to the parents, the teachers and the students. All of the three main concerned parties get a good opportunity to understand each other, and with mutual coordination, parents and teachers can remove any shortcomings which a student is facing in the class.
