OPS has partnered with regional and national level scouting teams and Pakistan Boy Scouts association to provide OPSians an opportunity to learn the skill sets and survival techniques delivered by learned scholars and experienced teachers from all over the country. Scouting is a practice forgotten by most academies but OPS still pertains its traditional learning seat and provides the youngsters the best opportunity to compete at national and international level.
We organized the Quaid-e-Azam Batch for first time in the history of any private school in Mardan. After that OPS continuously participated in scouting camps throughout the country. Every year a team of selected scouts is sent to Abbottabad, Takia Scouts camp to help them analyze the scouting world and gather the best experiences around. Keeping their values and traditions intact, OPSians never achieved less than 100 percent and throughout the years continuously named the honor flag after themselves which is given to the best team in a scouting camp and is competed for by the best private and government schools throughout the country.
