First Pakistan Idol
There is no platform where a Beaconite has not left a mark – be it academic or non-academic. Our students have always proved to be unmatchable in their confidence and commitment. We are proud to share that once again a Beaconite has taken the country by storm – an individual who fostered his musical skills on the stage of Beaconhouse to become the first ever Pakistan Idol. Zamad Baig, an alumnus of BSS Jhelum, passed his matriculation in 2008. During his years at BSS he used to take part in all the competitions and activities in school to harness his passion. He worked diligently with his music teacher, Mr Shahjahan Alam, who is still part of the team at BSS Jhelum. Students of the BSS Jhelum Campus supported Zamad by actively taking part in the voting process, eventually contributing to his win.
