I joined Cantt Public School Karachi in class III. I graduated in 1982 from XD. My favorite teachers were Miss Naheed Sultana Akhtar who was my class teacher in VII, Mrs. Shakira Abbasi (late) and Mrs Well.
I have the fondest memories of Cantt Public and the time spent there. The friends I am in touch with are: Mohammad Samie, Misbah Abbasi, Tanvir Rasheed, Waseem Kureshi, Navid Rasheed, Khurram Danyal and Faisal Akhtar. I am very impressed that all of us graduates of Cantt Public are successful in our careers. It says a lot about our alma mater.
