(Air Cdre(Retd) Jahangir Akhtar)
Shaheen has travelled a long distance of 16 years. Like a marathon runner, it has done it at a steady pace. As you all know I had no experience in the academic field, however I did bring along my air force experience relating to operations, administration, management and planning. Planning of operational matters is not exactly what it is for academic issues, but the experience has been a great help in organizing the system in an orderly manner. No task can be accomplished without proper planning, setting the goal and thereafter getting down to its achievement.
Over the past few years, a very disturbing element has been the teachers leaving Shaheen to seek government jobs which have become available in abundance during this period. Similar situation is being faced by other private schools and colleges as well. However, we have always managed to find as good or even better replacements of the departing staff.
Once again I would like to reemphasize the importance that we at Shaheen give to the character building aspects of our students. Every morning a question called, ‘’Question of the Day’’, related to moral values is discussed in each class. ‘’Knowledge of the Day’’ is another daily activity that is meant to enhance general knowledge of the students. Spoken English has of course been given its due importance at all levels in the school and college sections.
We will continue our endeavors to turn our students into well behaved and civilized young men and women, disciplined citizens and patriotic Pakistanis. We seek the parents’ cooperation to achieve our objectives.
