Welcome to Government Post Graduate College Charsadda
PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE AND BACKGROUND OF THE ESTABLISHMENT
OF GOVERNMENT POSTGRADUATE COLLEGE CHARSADDA
Education is the key to prosperity and positive progress in the society. It stands for institutional and professional training on the one hand and full development of the personality and potentialities one the other. Education is a dynamic process which evolves society and the individual simultaneously. Without harnessing the vast human resources available to our economic development, the objectives of social development will remain unfulfilled. An effective system of higher education not only serves present needs of the society but also helps to give direction and impetus to the course of human progress. Higher education is the agency’s primary responsibility for extending the frontiers of knowledge for examining and interpreting the ways of man and nature.
With this end in view, an intermediate college was commissioned in the ancient and historic town of Charsadda in September 1960. For about three years, classes were held in the small building of Government Primary School of Babara. In 1963, with the generous donation of 33 acres of land by certain local philanthropists, college building was constructed. The college was upgraded to degree level in September 1971, both in Arts and Science Subjects.
It was mainly on account of the relentless efforts of Prof. Arbab Hameedullah, a former principal, that the college was upgraded to the Postgraduate level on 16-02-1998. Three Postgraduate Departments in the subjects of English, Economics and Political Science offer masters level education to sons and daughters of the district of Charsadda at their doorstep. The college is affiliated to the Board of Intermediate & Secondary Education Peshawar and Bacha Khan University Charsadda.
In line with 16-years education for graduation degree, the college, at present, offers 4 years B.S Programmes in 10 subjects while 3 other BS disciplines are likely to be included this year.
We provide a congenial educational environment to the students of our college with the co-operation of our students and their parents.
Let me request the parents to meet the teachers at least once after three months to know about their children’s attendance and problems related to their education.
