Chief Executive’s Message

Welcome to the Happy Home 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.

Our logo clearly depicts our motto, which is ‘Knowledge is Power’. Our founder, Mrs. Maryam Faruqi truly believed in this and held this motto close to her heart. The beacon of light in the logo represents the power of knowledge- to spread light in the darkness; to create hope in times of despair; to create a sense of consciousness in the otherwise ignorant society.
