It is often said that it is the journey rather than the destination that matters and the same goes for the schoolís incredible evolution since inception. Ever since its birth in the year 1936 in the bylanes of Lahore, the school has been striving hard to deliver quality education and holistic development to the countless students whose parents decided to invest their time and faith in us and let us lead them through.
I feel immense pleasure and pride for being fortunate enough to witness our dreams coming true with such vivacity and perfection. The school has been a constant source of unfathomable knowledge, creativity and value guidance to millions of students over the years, and nothing but time stands testimony to this. Courtesy to its quench to excel par excellence, the school has been holding its head high as one of the pioneering educational institutions. I am experiencing tears of mirth as I retrospect and recollect the rich legacy of Adarsh Public School.
The triumph that I am experiencing at this juncture is beyond the array of the floweriest of words. One moment my pen halts at the incredible mission with which we embarked upon this journey, at the other, it leads me to the indelible landmarks that we have created so far. Today, as I sit back and write this, I feel overwhelmed with nostalgia. It seems almost like a dream come true that the seeds of vision that had been planted 75 years ago have come to fruition with such finesse and adroitness.
It goes without saying that the sojourn and the satisfying accomplishment is due to the blessings of that supreme, omnipotent and omnipresent power in front of whom we all bow our heads; the good wishes of our elders and sustained efforts of this large APS faculty, many of whom may not be associated directly at this Platinum Jubilee Celebrations, but in their own times they proved to be the pillars of this institution on which the school stands today Ė firm in its conviction to bring forth the best of latent talent. The emerging trends and technology and all that was good and adaptable in the past are all rolled in one package to be transferred to the coming generations. I envisage a new generation - techno savy, smart, confident having a broad spectrum ready to embark on a journey which is rich in values, culturally flourishing and idealistic Ė always striving for simplicity conjoined with high thinking.
