2015-2016 By the Numbers
PKS management introduced the Montessori method of teaching in 2014, starting with the lower grades, in all PK schools. The curriculum concentrates on phonics-based reading and early writing for pre-K through second grade, merging with mainstream government curriculum after that. In grades 3, 4 and 5 there is an additional special focus on creative writing, in an attempt to break away from rote memorization and enable students to think independently and express themselves.
School is about so much more than books. At PKSS, we want to ensure that the children have the space to discover individual talents and build their confidence as individuals. In addition, we focus on developing a sense of social responsibility among students – civic values, good citizenship and environmental awareness, all are woven into the school experience through different thematic events.
As far as visual and performing arts are concerned, a range of co-curricular activities are organized on a regular basis for children to express themselves. Sports are encouraged for everyone – both girls and boys love to play cricket.
Volunteers play an important role in facilitating and supporting many of our co-curricular activities, particularly student volunteers from private schools and organization supporting arts in Islamabad. In the past, we have had special events for mural-making, declamation contests and student performances.
