7. The Lahore Lyceum
As indicated in the school logo “Knowledge for strength and probity”, the major aim and objectives are directed towards significant contribution and participation in the development of Nation building through Promotion and widening of the scope of education
Responding to the need and demand for a good quality educational institution at Lahore, a group of public spirited, highly motivated and renowned educationists got together to set up this institution in 1983. At the outset, only one building at a beautiful location on Aziz Avenue, Canal Road was selected to house the school. The idea was so perfectly transformed into a plan and was so skillfully executed that it received not only an encouraging response but also a warm welcome from the people. In a short period, the school reached up to its maximum capacity. There was a great demand for further expansion, so another building was selected to open a separate girls’ branch almost adjacent to the main campus. The hard work, dedication, honesty and sincerity of the purpose worked and need for yet more branches came forth more forcefully. Campuses in important localities at Lahore and other main cities were set up. In approximately 28 years’ time, 12 campuses with a large number of students from early school to O’ level classes had come up at main cities of Pakistan.

8. Sacred Heart School
The purpose of the Sacred Heart School is to groom its pupils through a well designed curriculum into well integrated and accomplished young women who will be able to take their place with dignity and poise in a multifaceted society and that they will also be able to make a significant contribution to it.
The beginnings of the school can be said to be closely linked to the Great Famine which plagued our country at the end of the 19th Century. It was this famine that was instrumental in bringing the Sisters to the sub-continent in the year 1897. They answered the call from the Roman Catholic Hierarchy to leave their home, kith and kin to care for the many children who had become orphaned and abandoned. However, by the end of 1906 the Great Famine had become history and the flow of orphaned children slowed down to just 70. By 1908 the number had further decreased and only some 50 children remained to be cared for by the Sisters This meant that some of the rooms which constituted the orphanage were no longer required. All possibilities of an additional work of charity to bring in some financial aid for the remaining children were explored but all proved futile. It is well known that in time of great adversity that God enters more into our lives and a misfortune can bring about another ‘good’. It was thus that the Sacred Heart School came into being.

10. Convent of Jesus and Mary
The Convent of Jesus and Mary 86 Clifton Karachi is an educational establishment under the management of the Sisters of Jesus and Mary, who conduct such institutions throughout the world.
The Congregation of Jesus and Mary was founded in 1837 by Claudine Thevenet, in France at the time of the Revolution. She was a woman of deep faith and her greatest anguish was “that men should die without ever experiencing God”. She desired to form the young. For this purpose she established orphanages and schools where the young could be taught to aim at their entire self-development
The first group of Sisters came to India in 1842. The Convent School in Sialkot was founded in 1856. Other establishments were founded in Murree and Lahore in the same century. However, it was only in 1959 the Convent School in Karachi was opened, chiefly to cater for the educational needs of English speaking children in the Clifton area. It is the aim of our school to bring about the all-round development of the child’s physical, spiritual, intellectual, cultural and social growth, so as to form girls with integrated personalities, while taking into consideration the personal need of the individual and also that of the changing world of today. We strive for the spiritual and human formation of the pupil, and promote the dignity of the human person while fostering social relation. The young student is thus given a chance to acquire a better knowledge of the world and as a consequence a desire to be a real service to others.
