I am proud of the role Beaconhouse has played in setting new benchmarks in education over a period of four decades. Today the Beaconhouse group has over 315,000 full-time students in eight countries, making it one of the largest school networks in the world. Over the years, our schools have helped students become critical thinkers and problem-solvers, equipping them with the confidence to stand out from the crowd.
6As we continue to grow and evolve, each day brings with it new challenges and opportunities. I am delighted, therefore, to introduce our newest educational venture for those who seek to equip themselves to deal with the challenges of a rapidly modernizing world. In this context, Concordia Colleges aim to offer world-class education, across the nation, which is both cost-effective and standardized. The Colleges is not only aiming at academic excellence but also nourishing intellectual and personal development across a range of extra and co-curricular domains.
Extracurricular activities are globally accepted as an added advantage for the grooming of students. They inculcate in students time management, team-building and problem-solving skills. I am happy that Concordia students are very actively engaged in sports and extracurricular activities and have secured positions and medals in Punjab level competitions.
In this knowledge-based age, education is undergoing rapid transformation. The emergence of increasingly affordable digital products such as smart phones, tablets and e-readers is reshaping the way we think about teaching and learning. Concordia Colleges hope to attract enterprising students and faculty who are prepared to lead a revolution in pedagogy and open up new windows of learning.
I invite you to join our community of learners and acquire the skills needed to stand proud and play a role in the future of Pakistan.
