Beaconhouse School System has introduced an International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) in the twin cities, said a press release issued by the school. Becoming an IB school is a rigorous quality conscious conduit comprising candidacy and authorisation stages. Beaconhouse Educational Complex (BEC) is already a candidate school, now, pursuing the plan to get authorisation.
As a part of familiarising all stakeholders in the process of introducing the programme, which would run parallel to the A’ Level programme, an orientation session was held for prospective students and their parents.
Nazia Adeel, the diploma programme manager (DPC), introduced the design, its objectives and acceptance rate in national and international universities.
Nassir Kasuri, northern region executive director highlighted BSS’s mission to provide high-end quality education.
He also explained the rigorous process involved in hiring highly-qualified people for the administration and as teachers and how they underwent foreign training for professional development purposes.
Kasuri also highlighted the unique curriculum requirements of the diploma programme and how it would contribute to the development of the country at large.
“One of the distinct features of the IB programme is its commitment to foster international mindedness in students founded on the sense of justice and fairness through a carefully developed curriculum that ensures academic, worldly, and humane success,” he said.
Kasuri also pointed out how the “Green Campus” at Beaconhouse Educational Complex with purpose-built sports facilities is an ideal place to pursue the unique curriculum that combines academics, sports, and research for success in all aspects of life.
