Glorious 50 years of BAF Shaheen College Kurmitola

BAF Shaheen College Kurmitola is a reputed college in Bangladesh and it is an ideal educational institution located in a pleasant environment at Bangabandhu base Dhaka Cantonment. This college has 50 years of glorious history and tradition and I am proud to be a teacher of this college and at the same time I feel happy. BAF Shaheen College Kurmitola is run under the direct supervision and competent leadership of the Bangladesh Air Force. One thing I want to make clear here is that many people understand a person to be a shaheen but in fact it is not a person, Shaheen refers to the eagle and the eagle is a symbol of the Bangladesh Air Force. BAF Shaheen College Kurmitola is one of the best colleges located in the middle of pure nature and noise-free environment of Dhaka Cantonment which has a team of skilled teachers. It is a standard and reputed educational institution run by the Bangladesh Air Force under the Ministry of Education of the Government of the People's Republic of Bangladesh and the Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Dhaka. The reputation of the college is growing steadily due to the tireless efforts of the skilled governing body, experienced teachers, students and parents. This renowned institution was established by the Bangladesh Air Force in 1972 and was then named as Air Force School. In the year 1980, this institution was renamed as BAF Shaheen School and in 1982 the institution was upgraded to Class XII and renamed BAF Shaheen College Kurmitola. Here students from KG to class XII have the opportunity to learn in a beautiful and orderly environment and the college has a glorious result in the examinations of the Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education. Students are doing glorious results in primary and junior scholarship examinations in every year. The English version has been introduced along with the Bangla medium since 2010 and since 2015 the English version students have been participating in the regular SSC examinations and the trend of success has continued. The English version of the college branch started its journey from the 2019-20 academic year and through this the educational activities got institutional completion. ''Education, restraint and discipline'' is the main principle of this college
