of The Vision
Chand Bagh School, the first project of Chand Bagh Foundation
opened its doors in September 1998 as a fully Residential Public School. It
was established by Late Lt.-Gen Ghulam Jilani Khan on the pattern of
his Alma Mater the Doon School at Dera Doon, India.
The Vision of the Founders was to establish a unique educational
institution having its own characteristics and environment,
distinguishing it from the day schools, grammar schools, boarding
schools or a combination thereof. At Chand Bagh School the entire
community of students, teachers and their families, staff, servants
and their dependents, live, work and play together, sharing all
their problems, anxieties, joys and sorrows. This develops an ethos
wherein the School becomes a living and pulsating extended family.
Living and working together in an environment which is their home
and abode, the interaction between students, teachers and community as
a whole helps in achievement of wider goals. Indeed friendliness and
mutual trust is a salient feature of life at Chand Bagh School. The
on campus atmosphere and environment is stimulating, inspiring and
conducive to creative activity, learning and inquiry. This serves as
a tool to prepare boys for the challenging, fast changing and
demanding contemporary world.
The success of such a system depends upon the selection of competent
and dedicated teachers of the highest caliber and motivation. Great
pains are thus taken to select the teachers and to facilitate them
in an effective discharge of their duties. Teacher/Student ratio is
maintained at 1:12 to ensure individual attention. In addition each
boy is assigned to one Master who acts as his tutor, friend and the
guide. The emphasis is on more informal relationship between the
teacher and boy. Similarly discipline is based on cooperation and
common sense rather than authority.
A unique component of the vision is to inculcate dignity of labor
and to serve the community by engaging in socially useful productive
work. The resolve is to show that our next generation is worthy and
capable of leading the world.
