Welcome to Garrison Academy Kharian Cantt. Having spent more than three decades as an academician and administrator in one of the premier educational institutions of the country with rich cultural heritage and traditions and subsequent to it as Principal in APSACS, it gives me immense pleasure to serve as Principal at the GAK.
Its fascinating location, gorgeous infrastructure and architectural distinction exhilarate and scintillate the first entrants to the premises. GAK provides a tranquil and serene environment to the students; though not an old foundation, is fast heading towards establishing itself as centre of excellence.
The hallmark of GAK lies in achieving excellent results in the Federal Board Examinations. It makes its presence felt prominently in the FBISE Islamabad SSC and HSSC Examinations every year and occupies an important place in the overall ranking of the APSACS-run institutions.
Students are a valuable asset to the GAK; it provides ample opportunities to them to exploit their potential to the optimum level. Strategies are evolved to develop creative approach of the Garrisonians to the extent possible. Arduous hard-work by the staff members, team-spirit and effective motivational strategies enable them to excel in the board examinations. Students securing more than 85% and 90% marks in the Board Examinations are awarded scholarships @Rs.1000/- and 2000/- per month respectively. Free education facility is provided to the students winning 1st three positions in the Federal Board. GAK administration is pleased to offer free education facility to the wards of martyrs (Shuhada) and students from the relatively less developed areas of the country including FATA.
People at the helm of affairs at GAK firmly believe in the vital role of the co/extra-curricular activities in the multidimensional development of students’ personalities. Students of GAK, set enviable examples of leading sister institutions in debates, declamation contests, quiz competitions, UN type contests and in a number of national & international competitions arranged by the well-known institutions of the country. Medals prizes won by ‘Garrisonians’ massively during the ongoing year speak volumes of the standing of the GAK in the comity of the elite institutions of the country. Besides the intellectual development of the students’ personalities, Garrison Academy attaches great importance to their physical growth. Spacious playing fields provide ample opportunities to the students in sports and games under the supervision of well-trained and experienced instructors. Garrisonians perform distinctly in the regional and zonal competitions of sports every year under the auspices of APSACS Sectt.
Curriculum of GAK prescribed by APSACS is rich in content, diversified and fulfils the national requirements. We follow the system in letter and spirit and make periodic revisions / additions in it, as advised by the APSACS Secretariat.
I deem it adequate to put on record the superb role of the BOGs GAK, who not only patronise the system at the GAK but also play an active role in providing facilities to the staff and students; to name a few, added recently to the system are: a high profile cafeteria, renovation of the academy auditorium, construction of two additional blocks for academics, construction of state-of-the-art science labs, updating of the central library with internet facility and a number of other facilities. BOGs is the pragmatic force behind the superb show put up by GAK.
GAK staff is fortunate to enjoy the additional perks and privileges as compared to their counterparts elsewhere. Provision of facilities like hostels (male & female), married officers accommodation, free treatment from the local combined military hospital, loan facilities, membership of the garrison club and fee concession for their children at par with the army officers give them a sense of relief and pride in the GAK. Committeed and responsible, as they are, aware of the modern trends and requirements of education at the global level. Majority of the staff is APSACS-trained and are responding well to the challenges of modern age.
Thanks to the co-ordination of the Regional Director APSACS Mangla region for coordination and implementation of APSACS policies / systems.
