Universities under one roof
Karachi: Naheed Malik is a teacher at the Sarghodian Spirit Trust Public School Rashidabad. She stands at her stall with her students at the Education Expo. The school had put up a stall at the Islamabad Education Expo as well.
"We have existed for six years. It's time people know who we are," Malik says, explaining why she had put up the stall.
Rashidabad is a boarding school for boys located 30 kilometres from Hyderabad. It was established in 1993 by the Sargodhian Spirit Trust.
Her student, Shoaib Ahmed, who just completed his O Levels, says that coming to Karachi increased his exposure, and familiarised him with the sort of universities being introduced there.
In the middle of the hall stands a crowd, watching a woman dressed in white from head to toe perform tricks with her hands. She belongs to Aloha Pakistan, an institute for mathematics.
Aloha stands for Abacus Learning of Higher Arithmetic, and was established in 1993. In the age of iPods and Smart Phones, Aloha goes centuries back and teaches children math through two simple tools: the abacus and the hand. "It is an ancient Chinese method of teaching," Mrs Zeeshan Nadeem, the woman in white explains.
After success in Lahore, Mrs Nadeem has come to Karachi to promote this particular form of learning math.
A fighter plane engine that stood at the stall of the ATS training institute attracted several young boys. "It is just for promoting our stall," says a young student enrolled at the ATS that offers diploma courses that lead to jobs as technicians in airline companies.
Though the ATS is not registered with the HEC, it collaborates with Air Blue and also has courses registered with Edexcel-UK. For many young students just out of college, the fair provided the much-needed career-counselling.
Maham Zafar, who decided to apply for a BBA programme in two of the universities being promoted at the exhibit, says, "I do not have to visit each campus separately to find out about deadlines and application processes." Here at the exhibition, she says she can find a large number of universities "under one roof".
Sidra Hassan, an ACCA student, has a stall representing her institute. She thinks that through the education expo she can learn what to do next.
Another student, Khizr Tariq, who has just done with his intermediate, has decided to enrol in a BBA programme. He came to the exhibition with a group of friends to decide which university to attend. The news
