HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

Karachi Grammar School extends its deepest condolences at the passing away of HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

Prince Philip visited Karachi Grammar School in 1959. The 1960 edition of The Grammarian included photographic memories of his visit that we are sharing here. He also planted a tree that is still thriving in the grounds of the Middle Section campus in Saddar.

Karachi Grammar School started offering the Duke of Edinburgh International Award Programme for our learners in 2016. The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award (DofE) is a youth awards programme founded in 1956 by Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, that has since expanded to 144 nations. It is an experience of self-discovery in four domains: Services, Skills, Physical Recreation and Adventurous Journey.

Since its introduction, 415 students have been registered for the programme with approximately 200 students having received the Award. The remaining participants are at different stages of completing their journey.
