Pingu’s Mega Launch Ceremony was successfully held in Karachi at Global Marquee this month to acknowledge and recognise the excellence of the UK-based brand Pingu’s English International School. More than 1,000 guests were present, including parents and local authorities.
The Mega Launch event was attended by Kashif Memon, CEO at Pingu’s English Pakistan, and the guest of honour was Derek Price, CEO at Linguaphone Group Headquarters. Senior executives from major companies, Muffasir Atta Ahmed, President of Karachi Chamber of Commerce, were also in attendance, along with the Vice-President, Hanif Rehan, educationists, the famous TV show host, Owais Rabbani, politicians and reporters from different News Channels (GEO news, AAJ News, K21).
More than 1,000 parents travelled from all of Karachi’s six campuses (FB area campus, PECHS Campus, Gulshan Campus, Airport campus, DHA Campus and Clifton campus) to attend the Mega Launch Ceremony.
Speaking at this well-attended event, Derek Price commented: “I was privileged to be able to attend the Pingu’s English Mega Launch event in Karachi earlier this month.
“Without a doubt, it was the best attended launch of Pingu’s English we have seen with over 1,000 parents in attendance. This is truly impressive for a mid-week event, but it reflects the absolute commitment Pakistani families have for their children’s education. I was asked a series of probing questions at the end of the presentation and I was impressed with the depth of the family’s appreciation for their children’s progress with Pingu’s English.
“The team from Pingu’s English in Pakistan couldn’t have done more to make visitors like myself welcome, but they also showed a really strong relationship with the parents of kids attending their respective campuses. I look forward to my next opportunity to visit this impressive market!”
At the ceremony, Derek Price and Kashif Memon issued the certificate and awards of commendable contribution to the heads, principals, partners, and teachers of Pingu’s English School.
Several parents at the Mega Launch were interested in enrolling their kids in the new Pingu’s English Kindergarten programs. These were recently added to the programs of Pingu’s English School in Pakistan.
Kashif Memon added: “Due to the brand’s good reputation in the country, Pakistani parents tend to choose Pingu’s English because it differs from the classic didactic approach to teaching and learning, which addresses certain areas of education but does not use a more holistic approach to teach the child. Pingu’s English International Kindergarten will provide Pakistani children with a whole new experience in terms of learning through playing, with a well-reputed UK brand and respected international Curriculum that is far advanced in terms of its approach to early education. We are glad this Mega Launch has given parents a networking opportunity with other parents and enabled them to see how ambitious and established we are in the market. ”
We, at London Headquarters, wish Pingu’s English International School Pakistan and their team all the best for their future endeavours.
