The Aga Khan Girls Hostel, Hunza is located next to the School. It was built to provide accommodation for girls from Northern Pakistan’s remote areas. Most residents would not normally have access to secondary and higher secondary education in their hometowns. The existing schools currently offer primary and middle level (Classes 5 to 8) requiring students to travel to another town on foot for higher education or others to eventually give up their studies.
Equipped with a multi-purpose hall and study room, the hostel can accommodate 81 students. It offers quality facilities specifically focused on developing their overall physical, social, spiritual and intellectual growth. The Hostel offers regular religious education, Quran classes, career development sessions, health seminars and moral and ethical lectures by prominent local scholars.
The Hostel offers students easy access to the computer lab, library and classrooms in the main school building. Lecturers from reputable institutions regularly speak to boarders on health and hygiene, careers and scholarships and social and moral values. Medical assistance and vaccinations is available to residents, if necessary.
The School’s fully equipped 24-computer laboratory offers students access to audio-visual and printing facilities. All students are given basic computer training and the AKHSS Hunza emphasizes education through computers by encouraging students to include web-based research for various class projects and assignments.
The library carries over 3,000 books and reference resources. It subscribes to local, international periodicals (English and Urdu) and other monthly, daily and quarterly publications like the National Geographic, Scientific American, Educational Leadership, Herald, Readers’ Digest. Students can borrow books on topics ranging from Anthropology to Zoology during scheduled library periods.
Audio Visual Section
Based in the Library, the Audio Visual Section provides various teaching media to assist learning. Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Urdu and English Literature videos are accessible to teachers and students.
For students to clearly develop and understand scientific theories, it is essential to practically experience them. The School has three adequately equipped science laboratories with equipment, apparatus, chemicals and required instruments for Physics, Chemistry and Biology experiments.
During breaks, the cafeteria provides teachers and students a relaxing environment. It offers a variety of food and snacks including pastries, curries and bread at reasonable prices. Food quality and pricing is closely monitored by the school administration.
