Chief Executive’s Message
Welcome to the HHS School System website. We at HHS strongly believe in our motto- ‘Knowledge is Power’ and this is the driving force behind all our actions. At our School, education does not pertain only to academics, rather we believe in the holistic development of every individual. In these times of intense competition, while it is important to acquire theoretical knowledge, it is equally important to be equipped with problem-solving skills and hands-on experiences. We believe in taking the academic and co-curricular hand in hand- our focus on curriculum is evident from the positions our students secure in the official examinations and our emphasis on co-curriculum shines through the positions our students acquire in national and internal competitions in a variety of fields. I am proud to share that we have developed a reading programme by the name of ‘CLOVER’, which aims to instill the love of reading in students. This is a mandatory 20 minutes reading period at the start of the day, and as per the parents has improved vocabulary, provided fluency in speaking and writing, and created the desire to read.
It is this training & development, which enables our alumni to attain success in different walks of life not just in Pakistan, but also all over the world. It gives us immense pleasure to know that our students and alumni have the potential to compete for scholarships, in competitions and their professional lives all over the world, and are working to make a difference.
The evolution of the Happy Home School System to the HHS School System, along with the visual update, aims to continue our Founder’s dream of providing an inspiring education for every student, while moving forward with the times and focusing on meaningful, joyful learning that will prepare our students for the future. The lit torch on the transformed HHS visual identity, a nod to the famous HHS candle, acts as a symbol of truth, enlightenment, leadership, and dedication to education for the last 75 years, and the years to come!
