New Ortus is basically an idea of a non-profit based school which will provide high standard education to the students of the vicinity. The concept is to provide free education to 50-60% of the students those who belongs to underprivileged background and remaining 40% students those who can afford will be charged a low fee to cover operational expenses only.
New Ortus will be established in the Abbottabad city, which is located in the K.P.K province of Pakistan. Abbottabad city is chosen because of its important geographical location. It’s centrally located in the region and easy accessible from the surrounding rural areas.
Right now, after conducting survey of the location it is concluded that most of the educational institutes are unable to provide high standard of education. While, the schools which are capable to provide better standard of education are offering very expensive fees structures.
The main goal of New Ortus is to provide high standard education on reasonable costs. After New Ortus starts its operations, the generated funds will be re-invested back into the school activities. New Ortus have plans to give 100% free education to the needy and bright students which will make up to 60% of the students.
Initially New Ortus needs funding to establish an institute. After establishment of its setup, it has enough capabilities to run its operations smoothly without any external funding. As, New Ortus is a non-profit project so any earnings of the institute will be re-invested in the school for the betterment of its students.
New Ortus will be a co-education school, offering education up to primary level. Later on it will be upgraded to middle and then to the Secondary level. New Ortus will hire the best available faculty, as the standard of education of any institute depends totally on its faculty. New Ortus will follow the British educational standards and will be offering the syllabus which is being taught in the best schools of United Kingdom. New Ortus will be equipped with the latest computer lab and well-maintained library.
Moreover, after the school timings and on weekends the premises of school will be used to offer numerous life skills and social awareness workshops. Also, training courses will be given to the faculty members so they can improve their teaching techniques according to the latest educational requirements.
