The School and life in Bahria Town Lahore


Dear All
I am an overseas Pakistani and I am coming back in July next year. I have planned to live in Bahria town purely for it's security. I checked schools in Bahria but could find only one. Can somebody guide me about the standard of the school, as my kids would be going to class 8 & 7 and they both can't read or write Urdu at all, or is there any way they can avoid Urdu as a subject altogether.
Please I need your help and suggestions. I chose Bahria because of it's security only, I am not from Lahore but I want to settle down here
Kindly advice. Thanks to all of you in advance.

Urdu and Pakistan Studies are exempt for student who have foreign nationality in most schools like beaconhouse.

Welcome to Pakistan Mazhar Sahib.

You are right that there is only one school in Bahria Town (Bahria Town School) Lahore. It is a good school and many people like me are satisfied with it though some people in Bahria Town are not satisfied with the standard. Unlike UK & USA, parent's/home role in Pakistan is more important than teacher/school in the success of kids.

Bahria Town school offers alternatives (Easu Urdu) for overseas students who are not at home with Urdu. You may contact school office on phone number 00924235341641 or 00924235341643 to confirm it.

Bahria Town Lahore School is also discussed in following posts:

Thanks Mr. Kaisrani. I posted my reply before I saw your answer. It is truly an excellent website, where you can have so many friends even if you don't know any of them personally. Hats off to everybody at LRE and CMY for providing such a platform

I think this site is fortunate to have people like Mr. Kaisrani, who are willing to invest their time and help others. His advice has always been down to earth. God bless you Mr. Kaisrani. I am your unknown fan.

@ Mr asim, if you don't like Pakistan... its your choice but please don't disheart others. U don't like Pakistan.. please go and live where u like(then eventually we all have to go to another not ending world).

Dear friends
I can understand the frustration most of my Pakistani brothers have, but living abroad is not easy as well. One can't imagine the isolation and pain of living away from the loved ones. Even money wise it is not as rewarding as you think. One thing I have experienced myself is, I am a much better Pakistani now than before.
I sincerely thank everybody on this forum especially Mr. Kaisrani and Mr. Aamir.

Dear Mr. Mazhar

Have you considered Askari 10 or 11 in Lahore. I also live outside Pakistan so I am not sure but I was made to understand during my last visit that security in these two housing schemes is also good. You will get a few very good schools near these societies as well.

If there is any reason for not selecting Askari 10/11, please do share since I am also considering to relocate to Lahore and was thinking to get a house in Askari 10.

Mazhar Sahab!

I fully agreed with mr Mazhar ,living abroad is not easy/if u are earning on the other hand u are loosing a lot,,specially ur home land ,occasions ,and many more,, i am also a overseas pakistani,,living abroad,aerned money but lost much ,,

according to me the people living in pakistan are much better then us,,

i would like to say that if we choose right candidates for govt,its the best country in the world to live for..

any how salam to all

As long as GCE O level is taken from Pakistan, Urdu and Pak studies are not exempted. refer to http://www.ibcc.edu.pk/. I would also recommend Askari because of its security and priximity to best schools like BHSS and city. A friend of mine from Dubai has family in Askari and they are extremely satisfied with the security and schools are nearby as well. Bahria is good too, but you will have to have a driver + car for schooling if in case u did not choose the school is Bahria.

Quality and standard of daily life necessities (Schools/shopping Malls) are much better around the area of ASKARI-10 area.

The price of 10 marla house at Bahria Town sector-c is about 60-70 lac (20 lac plot price + 40~50 lac construction cost) while in Askari-10 the house price is over 110 lac with poor construction.

Gauhar replied on Tuesday, December 20, 2011 02:56 PM PST

certainly Askari-10 was secure in past, but robberies & decoities in askari-10 is not a news now a days.as far as schooling in askari-10 is concern,you will have to have a driver for children for school also.

Aamir replied on Tuesday, December 20, 2011 09:25 PM PST

If your considerations are Education of children and security then consider Paragon City where, LGS,LACAS at present and City School, Beacon house, Islamic school in future will be at 5 minutes walking distance, while living at a secure place.
