Pakistan Urdu School (PUS; Urdu: پاکستان اردو اسکول بحرین‎) is a private school functioning in Isa Town, Bahrain and was founded in 1956[1] by Bahraini and Pakistani trustees as an alternative English medium school for the Pakistani community in Bahrain. The majority of students are Pakistani nationals.

History[edit]

Pakistan Urdu School was established in March 1956 by a group of overseas Pakistanis who lived in Bahrain at the time. This included Mr. Ashraf S. Mohammadi, Mrs. Saleha Raheem, Mr. Haji Asghar Ali, Mr. Abdul Rasool Malik, Mr. Sayed Akber Ali and Dr. Mehitapwala. The school, which is managed by a board of trustees, prepares students for secondary and higher secondary examinations in arts, science and commerce. The present strength of the school is about 230 staff members catering to the educational needs of about 2,000 students from all nationalities. The medium of instruction is English. The school has separate classes for boys and girls. The school is affiliated with the Federal Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education, Islamabad, Pakistan. The Pakistan Urdu School has a team of dedicated teaching staff under the supervision of the school management and the guidance of the board. The school aims not only to provide proper academic grooming, but also moral upbringing of the students. This institution emphasizes academic excellence as well as encouraging co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. One of the main aims of the Pakistan Urdu School is to ensure hat its students not only attain useful scholarly skills, but also be productive and responsible members of society. All these attributes make Pakistan Urdu School an ideal institution, committed to the noble cause of imparting quality education on a non-profit basis. The trustees are committed that any surplus earned is reinvested on various developments of school facilities. In the past the school has invested in new buildings and moved the primary school from Manama to Isa town. More recently, it has undergone a major metamorphosis. New school canteens have been constructed, the play area was tarmacked and a proper area for school buses to arrive and safely transport the students was built. The school has also renovated the primary school classrooms, providing them with a new state-of-the-art look as well as the addition of new activity and audio visual rooms. The school has set up new computer laboratories for the girls’ primary section and middle school. The present strength of the school is over 2000 students and 200 staff members. It has 64% Pakistani nationals, 30% Bahrainis and 6% students of other nationalities (namely Malaysian, Jordanian, Egyptian and Sri Lankan).
