Studies continue as EMS deploys MS Teams in response to COVID19 lock-down. April 2020
The affects of the Corona virus pandemic has permeated every facet of our lives, from our personal hygiene, how we interact with our family, what we eat, how we dress, where or if we travel, how we work and now how we educate our children.
This has been a steep learning curve for all educational institutions across the world, including Pakistan. How do we continue to educate our children, delivering the high level of education they rightly deserve without students having to leave their homes.
EMS has stepped up to the challenge by deploying high level modern technology such as MS Teams that support collaborative online learning with clever management practice to minimise disruption to our students educational development?
The use of MS Teams and its associated Microsoft Office 365 applications has opened up a whole new world of educational possibilities and we look forward to exploring these opportunities as we move forward into a world post Covid19.
EMS progress to DI STREAM Xtreme 2020 finals. March 2020
In March 2020 EMS students were due to take part in the 3rd Destination Imagination National Tournament! This tournament is an exciting and innovative series of challenges based on the application of the principles of STREAM (Science, Research, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics). Students work in teams to research, design and build a solution to their preferred Challenge. In solving a Challenge, they learn the creative process—a powerful learning tool that helps students assess problems, reflect on their progress, learn from failure and turn their original ideas into reality. Mastery of STREAM prepares students for today’s and tomorrow’s jobs – and can ensure that our country become a leader in technology and innovation.
Teams from all over Pakistan were invited to participate in this Tournament with the winning teams getting an invitation to go to the Global Finals which were scheduled to be held in Kansas in May 2020. Unfortunately, the Global finals were cancelled due to the corona virus pandemic.

EMS students excel in IGCSE 2019 Results. August 2019
The students this year were pioneers for the changed syllabus as well as for the revised grading system. The new grading system follows the UK Govt requisite for numbers 9-1 which was exciting but a bit nerve-wracking for the first batch. The changed syllabus had brought in many new topics and varied paper formats.
20 of the 24 students are featured here as they scored 5 or more 7s (a 7 is equivalent to the old A).
The batch acheived a total of 45 9s! (9 is a new grade point, created to separate the top 3-5% A*s!) Alhumdulillah

EMS High School wins the National FIRST Lego League Championship for the third straight year. January 2019
Three teams registered and took part in the competition. Preparations began in October. First there were the Regionals in January where two teams won Regional Champion awards and the third was also selected for Nationals
In Nationals last night our teams made us all super proud:
Team NovaBauts won the Championship Award. Team Omegabots won a category award for their Core Values and the Robot Game top score award. Team Moonwalkers won an award for Project Innovation.
These children have worked tirelessly and so very enthusiastically to bring this honor home. Last few weeks we were at the school working away 13-15 hour days. All the sweat, blood and tears and the many many duas from parents and well wishers has led us to this. We are so very grateful.
NovaBauts will be representing Pakistan at the FIRST Lego League World Festival in Detroit, USA this April InshaAllah. Omegabots will be representing Pakistan and EMS at the FLL Event in Izmir, Turkey this May InshaAllah.
We will be working extra hard to iA keep our flag and heads held high.
Over 45 teams from across Pakistan had taken part in the championship while 21 had made it to the Nationals.
Reminder: EMS BOTistotles won the Nationals last year while EMS Alphabots were the Champions in 2017. Alhumdolillah!!!
