Establishment of Khulna Public College
The present college building was constructed by the then government of Pakistan in the late sixties for the purpose of setting up a secondary school in Khulna city.
But as the war of independence started in the country, it was not possible to start school activities at the right time.
After a decade of independence, thanks to the interest of the local people and the sincere efforts of the then Education Secretary, Mr. Kazi Azhar Ali, the Sundarbans Boys Public School was launched on 20 January 1968 in imitation of the famous public school in England.
In the same year, the activities of the college section started and on 1 August 1986, the Ministry of Education issued a notification and renamed the institution as Khulna Public College. The notification was published in the Bangladesh Gazette on 16 August 1976. The Ministry of Education approved the opening of a day branch in the college in 2003 as the success of the college has continued since its inception and the demand for education of the people has been increasing.
At present the morning and day branch activities are being conducted successfully in the college. Khulna Public College has been able to elevate its position as a unique educational institution of the country by celebrating its 25th anniversary on January 20, 2012.
The college stands as a witness to a glorious history on about five and a half acres of land surrounded by greenery on the east side of the Khulna-Dhaka highway in the Boyra area under the Khulna City Corporation.
