Stars is a High School for children aged between four and fifteen studying between Playgroup and 10 grade of our local education system. It was opened in 2003 as a High School to serve the educational needs of Shahdara, together with the rural area extending as far as Muridke in the North and Sharqpur in the South-West including the adjoining villages on Lahore – Sheikhupura Road. Under the auspicious leadership of its Chairman Mr. Muhammad Younus and the headship of its founder Principal Mr. Sheraz Amjad, Stars School grew in name and stature within months of its establishment and, in 2004, it was granted Affiliation with the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education, Lahore. This new status has conferred upon us new rights, responsibilities and regulation.
Shahdara, situated on the bank of the Ravi, was formerly the main entry-point to Lahore from Kashmir and Kabul and was used as an encampment garden across the river from the Lahore Fort and as a place for royal tombs. The name Shahdara first appeared in the Akbarnama in the mid-1590s in connection with Akbar’s visit to Kashmir. It is a site of Mughal architectural masterpieces the most important of which are the royal tombs of the fourth Mughal emperor, Janhagir (died in 1627 at Rajauri, Kashmir and was buried in the Dilkusha garden, Shahdara), his brother-in-law Asif Khan, and his wife, Noor Jahan.
At the present time, Shahdara has become a noted center of fast-growing educational activities in Lahore. Stars group is a major contributor to the educational activities in Shahdara. Our soaring logo stands for the vision of the literate sphere of Shahdara represented by the Ravi and Jahangir’s Tomb. The Three books in upright position symbolize enlightenment and advancement. We believe that the rising tiers of Stars will cast their light to illuminate this region and as they rise higher they will illuminate the whole world. At Stars we are devotedly working to produce such enlightened and empowered leaders.
