In 1981, responding to the private sector demand for a better quality of education compared to what was being imparted at government-run schools, The FPS Founding Team took this great leap into the extraordinary. The first branch of the school was opened in the PECHS area as it occupied a central position in Karachi and was considered a logistically better accessible area. Today, Foundation Public School is a well integrated network of 9 branches (6 in Karachi and 3 in Hyderabad , Sindh).[1] FPS Introduction

FPS History

It all began way back in the 70s when an ambitious and determined individual won a Rotary Scholarship to a Master's Programme in Educational Administration and Supervision at the Syracuse University, New York. While in the U.S. Yasmeen met and became friends with another Femme Extraordinaire Sabiha Mohammad who was and continues to be, passionately interested in Early Childhood Education. Sabiha was completing her training in America Montessori Society in the U.S. at the time. This commonality of visions and passions of 'Learning to Educate', brought Yasmeen and Sabiha further close, close enough to set up FPS; there has never been a moment of looking back, just 'Standing on tip-toe to look beyond'. On their return to Karachi, providence had it all chalked out for them; both Yasmeen and Sabiha began work at the same school; Yasmeen as a Vice-Principal and Sabiha, the head of the Infant Section. Opportunity came knocking at their doors when a school building came up for rent. The two enterprising women, along with Sabiha's cousin Raza Minhas who had returned from the U.S. securing an MBA degree for himself, leased the property and the first branch of FPS opened in P.E.C.H.S on October 14, 1981 with 14 students and 5 teachers. Today, Foundation Public School is a well-integrated network of 10 branches (7 in Karachi and 3 in Hyderabad (Sindh). It is one of the very few educational conglomerates which read the need and spelt it out so successfully by stepping on a path where most 'feared to tread'; one of the fewer still who withstood the rising accusation that it had strengthened the hands of those who were auctioning education at exaggerated prices. But the founders of FPS have proved to its detractors that to buy quality, any price is too little. 'Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world' - [2] FPS History

At the after school club activities we invite guest speakers, photographers such as Ahmed Jalbani, Ali Khursheed and Noor-ul-ain from prominent universities such as Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture, who share diverse perspectives and skills in photography and conduct workshops with the students to enhance their skills. Photography competitions are also held to promote young talent. Field trips are also planned to provide interesting photographic opportunities for members.[4] FPS Club System

Save Zoo

FPS Zoo
FPS Zoo
The Save Our Zoo Programme is a project of Foundation Public School. It was initiated in 2010 by a group of passionate A level students of the Student Council to re-establish the bond between man and nature, and to rekindle the love for animals.The Karachi Zoo is our cultural heritage and it is our prime responsibility as citizens of Pakistan to take care it. Our objective is to uplift the general appearance of the zoo and to spread awareness about our role towards the animals and the upkeep of the zoo. In its fifth year, the SOZ programme has reached greater heights. The students have shown a lot of care and enthusiasm in making this a successful programme. The efforts, time and fund collection that our students have done for the project is highly appreciated by the management. On the occasion of the 35th year celebrations of the school and as part of the SOZ programme, “A Family Day at the Zoo” was held recently at the Karachi Zoo. It was attended by 6000+ parents and students. A fun-filled day with a lot of activities and food was well enjoyed by everyone. FPS Leads!
