Extra-Curricular

In addition to sport facilities for volleyball, cricket, and football, AKHSS, Gilgit also has a number of clubs and societies. The objective is to provide a forum for students to plan and implement various activities in the pursuit of their individual interests. Leadership development is an additional benefit underlining all these activities.

English Literary Society

The English Literary Society provides a forum for students to arrange various literary activities including different competitions such as English debate and essay writing. Thus, the society is actively engaged in developing students’ literary and communications skills.

Science Club

The Science Club involves students in activities and discussions that expand and enhance students’ scientific knowledge while developing their psychomotor skills.

Art and Music Club

The Art and Music Club strives to preserve the rich cultural heritage of Pakistan’s Northern Areas, and uses this environment to enhance students' learning experiences. AKHSS, Gilgit regularly produces local musical functions, cultural exhibitions, and Annual Parents Days. In addition, the club organises art competitions at school and inter-school levels.

Hiking Club

World-famous for some of the highest mountains in the world, including K2, Nanga Parbat and Rakaposhi - the region is a hiker’s paradise. The main objective of this club is to encourage students to appreciate nature and pursue an activity that fosters physical well-being.

Environmental Club

The Gilgit Environment Club was established in 1998 to create environmental awareness amongst students. Since its inception, the club has organised and participated in many environment-friendly programs for students to create awareness about environmental issues.

Urdu Literary Society

As many our students come from a variety of backgrounds and linguistic traditions, the Urdu Literary Society motivates students to engage with the Urdu language. The Society arranges activities and functions that help students learn and improve their language skills.

In addition to the above extra-curricular programs, AKHSS, Gilgit arranges annual student study trips of educational interest at local, regional and national levels.
