ABOUT THE SCHOOL
The Emergence of Pakistan with the changing horizons and new aspirations
required a new leadership in almost every walk of Public and Social
life. Thus the need of the hour was a Public School to lay special
emphasis on Islamic Ideology, revive our glory and restore our
cultural heritage besides character building and personality development programmes and usual academic activities; a Public School disciplined
on the style of Harrow or Eton. The building of such an institution
is an uphill task but real men are those who established such colossal
monuments, worthy of the Nation, the teacher and the taught. Such
institution illumines the life and character of the young generation
which is but the future hope of our Millat.
This project was taken up by the Government of Bahawalpur. Its
foundation stone was laid by Alahazrat, Sir Sadiq Mohammad Khan
Abbasi V, in March 1953.
No country can prosper and flourish unless its people are properly
educated so that they may know what is happening in the world around
them and are able to discern between good and bad. The problem of
education becomes all the more important and pressing in these fast
changing times when our people aspire to attain full rights, and
benefits of democracy and an enviable position among the progressive
nations of the world. The achievement of this objectives needs large
finances, careful planning, vision and better methods, New
need to be evolved whereby our educational institution should not
merely produce baboos and petty job-hunters but youth with strong
character, great capabilities, initiative and drive to shoulder
the responsibilities lying ahead of them.
The Ruling House of Bahawalpur the scion of Abbaside Caliphs of
Baghdad which had earned worldwide fame as patrons of education
and knowledge – has distinguished itself in the Orient as
great lovers of art and learning. The grant by them
of big Jagirs
to religious institutions which served as
centres of education and
enlightenment in those days is a vivid expression of their desire
to maintain the noble traditions of their illustrious ancestors.
Their zeal in this direction has continued unabated and as a result
of this, satisfactory progress is being achieved in the field of
The Bahawalpur Government under the kind patronage of the Ammer
of Bahawalpur and dynamic Chief Minister Makhoomzada Hassan Mahmud
very timely, visualized the need of an institution which should
nourish in its fold polished young men to fit in the future set-up
as administrators, educationists, scientists, engineers and diplomats.
The scheme was discussed in all its details by the experts and
as soon as they were convinced of its usefulness and feasibility,
plans were drawn up, necessary formalities were gone through and
the P.W.D. machinery was put into gear.
Just opposite the Bahawalpur Forest Reserve, on the left side of
the road to Dera Nawab Sahib where there was a vast area of 180
acres covered by wild growth or mounds of earth and deep depressions,
like irregular water catchments caused by excavation of earth by
the owners of brick kilns across the road, bulldozers and hundreds
of labourers began to work.
The opening ceremony of the School was performed by Ala Hazrat
the Ameer of Bahawalpur on 18th of January 1954. The school started
functioning with the main School Block, a senior and Junior Boarding
House with accommodation for 50 boys each and five staff
Within two years, a Mosque, two Swimming Pools, a Hospital, a dozen
more staff bungalows and all the ancillary buildings were completed.
To begin with, the School had only 37 children and 7 teachers. Khan
Anwar Sikandar Khan, the first Principal developed this institution
from scratch and converted a veritable wilderness into a campus
of panoramic spectacle.
It was a Herculean task to make a beginning on nothing more than
450 acres of barren land. At present this institution ranks among
the foremost Public Schools of the country. It has now
Houses where more than 500 pupils reside varying in age from 5 to
18 years, including girls.
With the exception of Aitchison College in Lahore and a few Public
Schools in Karachi there was no institution of high standard between
Lahore and Karachi. This institution was thus established with the
specific objective of providing Public School education to the children
of Bahawalpur Region in particular and the whole country in general,
so to produce leaders in various walks of public and social life.
Sadiq Public School is situated on the national highway, 392
from Lahore, 828 kilometres from Karachi and 100
Multan. Bahawalpur is in southern Punjab, 350-375 feet above sea
level and linked with Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad by road, rail
and air. The temperatures vary from extreme hot in summer to very
cold in winter.
