Soan Valley Public School

Encouraged by the phenomenal success of PVPS, KEF planned to replicate similar schools in other parts of the country. Thus, Soan Valley Public School was established in May, 2005 at village Pakhowal (near Rawat) about 35 km from Rawalpindi. The entire funding for the school came from KEF UK. The school building located in Pakhowal Complex (covering an area of over 51 kanal) serves as an adjunct to Institute of Teacher Education as a resource centre and venue for initial teaching practices. It has been built to take classes up to HSSC. In 2008, a second prep class was added to accommodate maximum children, specially the girl students from this remote and academically impoverished area.
The initial faculty for Soan Valley Public School came from PVPS. Mrs. Joan Atkinson, who was the pioneer principal of PVPS and the first Director of Institute of Teacher Education, returned voluntarily to steer the school during its formative period. With passage of time, the faculty has been replaced by local teachers trained in the Institute of Teacher Education.
Like PVPS, the SVPS has been provided with all the modern educational facilities. Its library, named after Miss Anna Finn, a London school teacher (who ran seven consecutive marathons on seven consecutive Sundays in UK and France to promote the cause of KEF, in 2007) has almost 10,000 books, mostly donated by KEF UK.
