50 students 'fail' despite passing PEC examination
Lahore: Government Central Model School, Lower Mall, has denied promotion to over 50 students to class 9 despite the students have passed class 8 Annual Examination 2012, conducted by the Punjab Examination Commission (PEC), it is learnt.

The school management has denied promotions to next class on the basis of result of its own internal assessment of the students blatantly ignoring PEC exams held earlier in 2012.

The Punjab Examination Commission announced the results of Class-8 Annual Examination 2012 on March 31.

However, the school management has refused to accept the PEC results and started asking the parents to collect "School Leaving Certificate" and get admitted their children to some other school.The parents are being informed by the management that the school's Board of Governors has decided not to promote those students to Class-9th who failed or performed poorly in the school's own internal assessment. Interestingly, in some cases the students who got over 60 percent marks in Class-8th PEC exams have been denied promotion to next class, exposing the kind of blatant rejection of results prepared by the government's own body, the Punjab Examination Commission.

The latest move has not just greatly irked the students but their parents as well who are in a state of shock questioning as to why the school is not considering and accepting results of PEC established by the Punjab government itself.

Similarly, there are reports that many private schools have also been denying promotions to students to next classes on the basis of PEC results.

An aggrieved father told The News that his son secured over 60 percent marks in Class-8 exams conducted by PEC but he had been asked to collect the school leaving certificate by the management of Government Central Model School. "We have been told to find a new school for our son," he said, adding "This is sheer injustice."

He demanded the Punjab chief minister look into the matter and provide justice to all such students.

The News could not reach Government Central Model School's Acting Principal Mian Abdul Haq despite repeated attempts on his cell phone.

Schools Secretary Muhammad Aslam Kamboh was also not available for comments.

Lahore EDO (Education) Muhammad Pervaiz Akhtar who is also a member of the Government Central Model School's Board of Governors (BoG) refused to comment, saying it was an autonomous school and all decisions were taken by the BoG. "The government cannot interfere in affairs of the school", he added. To a question, however, he said no such decision was taken by the BoG under which the students who failed in internal exam but passed PEC exam would be deprived of promotion to the next classes.

Parliamentary debates held at AMC
Rawalpindi: Each year, during the 'Sports Week' that focuses on competitions of extra-curricular activities which are part of the curriculum of the Army Medical College (AMC), parliamentary debates are also organised which deal with issues or other subjects of interest.

These are hotly and very knowledgably contested by the teams from various 'companies' of the college, both by boys and girls. The event is managed by the students (young 'doctors to be') themselves, and they are given just an hour to prepare their arguments for and against the motion.

The debate was held in the Ayub Auditorium of the college which was packed with students, all of whom were eager to support the contestants from their company - the atmosphere of excitement almost palpable. After the chief guest, Lt. Gen (r) Kamal Akbar - ex-surgeon general and principal army medical college - had arrived, the programme began with a recitation from the Holy Quran. The judges for the event were a veteran correspondent, Ms. Hyatt and renowned newscaster, Prof. Shaista Zaid.

The presidents for the debate were both final year students, Jawaad Qureshi and Sadaf Irshad both excellent debaters and winners of contests in previous years. The vice presidents were Fahad Shakil, Hasan Tariq and Ayesha Rahman. The topic for the debate was, 'Culture is the most important factor in a nation's stability' - a subject that can lead to a myriad of 'for' and 'against' arguments!

The debate was fiery and it was interesting to hear the contestants voice their opinion in a forceful and well researched manner - it showed that despite their hectic study schedule, these young people are aware of and do take an interest in what is going on in the country. In the final analysis, Nisar-e-Fatima Changezi and Sidra Riaz from Ayesha Company were adjudged the best speakers, with sound arguments for the opposition and proposition respectively, so their company was awarded the first position and won the trophy - needless to say amidst cheers and slogans from their supporters! The runner up team for the event was Razi Company, represented by Daniyal Kamal and Hamza Jahangeer, who were also cheered vociferously by their colleagues.

In conclusion the chief guest was asked to say a few words, which he did with a touch of seriousness and a sprinkle of humour. Shaista Zaid also addressed the gathering.

During the tea break that followed there was an informal discussion about what was said - or not - during the debate. It is noticed that students of the AMC are generally well behaved and polite while having a sense of responsibility and respect for their elders - something that is quite apparent when you interact with them on various occasions. This proves that despite the fact that some people object to the disciplinary rules of military educational institutions, it is good they are part of the system because they teach self discipline as well - for as someone once said, 'true freedom is impossible without a mind made free by discipline.
