The Tech School Takhat Pari has been the pioneer of school education by COTTAGE Trust. It was established in early 2017 in a rented building constructed as a shopping complex in Dhok Chaudhrian Chowk. The Trust spent significant amount of money to give the rented building shape of a school. Additional land was incorporated, land was filled to develop a playground, a veranda was constructed and a boundary wall was developed to enclose the area.
On March 1st, 2017, classes with 12 students and 2 teachers officially began in this campus. Teaching techniques appropriate for the students of this area were adopted.
Over the last six years, the school has developed reputation of a centre of excellence in primary education. The school ran out of space in 2019 and therefore the landlord was convinced to construct a new block for the Montessori. We have adopted single national curriculum and found no difficulty since we were already working on similar lines. Modern labs, libraries, including computer laboratory and playground are available at our school. It is a frequent practice to include the internet into teaching methods. Besides, teachers training is a regular feature, hence we are developing the human resource as well.
The school is situated falls within the province of Punjab and accordingly is registered with the Rawalpindi Education Authority. Punjab Govt. has introduced Single National Curriculum (SNC) from Classes 1 to 8. Books printed by the Punjab Curriculum & Textbook Board have been selected for The Tech School System. Medium of Instructions is a mixture of English and Urdu. From PG to Prep, AL GABA Readers and our own designed printed notebooks are being used. For classes 1 to 5, SNC books are being used. Since SNC does not include the subjects of Science and IT in the initial classes, books for these additional subjects have been selected from Al GABA Publishers:

Meanwhile, we tried our level best to continue studies through door to door visits, dropping circulars at shops, announcements in mosques, most important, we started SMS and WhatsApp service for parents and students to get in touch with teachers, school and the system
