Houses compete with one another at Academics achievements, Sports (Cricket, Futsal, Badminton, Basketball, Table Tennis and Swimming), Scrabble Competition, Debate Competition, Qirat Competition, and Trilingual (Arabic, English & Urdu) Literary Competitions and in other ways, thus providing a focus for group loyalty.
Merit points for behavior and academic achievement aggregated for comparison among houses.
It is a year-long programme of inter-house events, with points contributing to the award of the The Benchmark Cup at the end of the year.
School is a seminal part of child’s up-bringing. It is a place where a child explores his innate skills and abilities, enhances his intellectual understanding, strengthens his personality and prepares him for future challenges and responsibilities.
Here, at The Benchmark, we believe that academic excellence does not come only with classroom lessons. It is achieved through holistic application of learning i.e. the students not only excel in their subjects of studies but they also groom as healthy and strong citizens with a decided vision. Students will not only learn the art of incorporating their knowledge with their areas of zeal, they will participate in activities with like-minded folks and engage in sharing their ideas and knowledge. Moreover, with these societies, students will learn time management skill; a foremost trait required to climb the ladder of success here and hereafter.
To top this all, it’s a tremendous opportunity for school and parents to put our heads together and explore the God-gifted talents and acquired inclinations of a child and help him be a part of society that appeals his taste.
Following is the list of the seven societies we have,
- Seerat-un-Nabi (SAW)
- Scientia Society
- Society of Geographers and Historians
- The Society of Performing Arts and Public Speaking
- The Literary Society
