Ministry of Education has been informed about the opening of the institutions. The process has already begun alongside the procurement of furniture and recruitment of more than 100 teaching and non-teaching staff. The staff is going to be hired for 3 years on contractual basis.

These seven constitutes will comprise of 1 school and 6 colleges. The growing need of the students will be greatly catered after the inauguration of these educational institutes after 3 months. Moreover, the load on model colleges in the city will see an exponential decline once the institutes are completely operational.

- Islamabad Model College for Boys G-13/2
- Islamabad Model College for Girls G-14/4
- Islamabad Model College for Girls G-13/1
- Islamabad Model College for Boys Pakistan Town
- Islamabad Model School Gohra Shahan (classes 1-5)
- Mera Bagwal College Bhara Kahu
Importantly, Mera Bagwal College did not get the much-needed attention from the previous governments. However, the classes are set to resume from August with fully functional facilities.
One of the FDE speakers’ added:
“When people of Bhara Kahu and its adjoining area will have a state-of-the art model college in Mera Bagwal, then why would they admit their children to colleges located in an urban area?”
Government’s bid to provide quality education in all nooks and corners is quite evident.
