Shaheen Public School
Behind the great foundation of Shaheen group of Schools is the only name – the name of late Mohammad Ali Hafiz (Blessed be his memories). Hafiz Sahib saw the light of the day on 15th of August, 1937. Right from his teenage, he began to develop philanthropic nature. He was moved by watching the Educational backwardness of the inhabitants of down town or the interior of the city. As he grew older, his great desire was to find an everlasting remedy to this grave problem of backwardness. He began to ponder over it.
“In education lies the solution,” said he, “Education” he got the idea. He wanted to give practical shape to his ideas. He started with the opening of a night college at Zarab Khana (Saraf Kadal). Motivated by the good results and fruitful outcome of Night College, Hafiz Sahib took one step forward by inauguration of a school at Budh Gair under the name of SHAHEEN in the year 1972 – 1973. This school with the incessant toil of Late Hafiz Sahib progressed by leaps and bounds. Later on it was recognized by the Govt. as a High School. This attracted a large number of students particularly from the Down –Town Locality classes. Encouraged by the response from the public from the surrounding areas, Hafiz Sahib’s burning zeal for the Educational upliftment, of the Society in the interior of the city, enhanced day by day. To give vent to his inborn and innate desires, the patron started another branch of Shaheen Public School at Ganderpora, (Eidgah). “SHAHEEN” a bird who flies higher and higher. A name of his choice. The founder wanted that the students should melt like a taper in pursuit of knowledge.
