It was in mid 80's that Syed Ihsan Ullah Waqas and Mr Liaqat Baloch, the founder members of The Makkah Foundation and eminent social workers, realized the need for setting up a superior quality school that could provide quality education to the children of indigent and lower middle class at an affordable expense. A piece of land measuring 66 kanals, in a comparatively underdeveloped area of Southern Lahore, was purchased by the Foundation from the Department of Housing & Physical Planning, Govt of the Punjab,in July 1989. The ground breaking ceremony of the Foundation's first educational venture, The Punjab School, was held on 14th August 1990. This School took a modest start with Preschool, Junior & Girls High School in April 1992 and Boys High School in April 1994 in three blocks of single-storey buildings. During the period of nine years, after its inception, some more philanthropists and social workers joined hands towards promoting this cause that enabled us to add a separate block of Junior School, another storey of Preschool, and two floors each of Boys and Girls Schools in addition to constructing a multipurpose hall and a swimming pool.
