Twice a year, the school takes a few days off for a mid-term activity, ‘Explorations’. In this event, group of students, accompanied by a staff member, undergo a variety of activities that both challenge and stimulate them, such as treks, camps, excursions, visits and social and community service projects.
There is a wide variety of choices and every student must opt of at least two hobbies and two sports per year. Our educational process runs throughout the year through a dynamic sequence of Inter-Class/ Inter-House and Inter-School Competitions in various co-curricular activities. At Lyall Public School, communication skills are given utmost importance. While general communication takes place in English, the Literary Club at the school schedules a number of activities in the calendar, to ensure that children get ample opportunity to participate in oratory competitions as well.
Language plays an important role in human life. English, being a global language, enables a person to be more competitive. Keeping the enhancement of English language in our minds, BIS has introduced the ‘English as Second Language’ (ESL) class for the students. The programme is all about improving the English language of the students by giving them optimum opportunities to communicate interact and express themselves under the supervision and guidance of their language teachers.
These activities create enthusiasm and interest among the students and also play a very significant role in the training imparted at the school. All the students are expected to take part in one or the other activities. The school also celebrates birth anniversaries of noted personalities and festivals one day prior to their specified holidays.
Students of LPS are exposed to various life skills which enable them to be better equipped to face challenges in life. There are different clubs and societies to encourage and create interest among the students. All students are encouraged to play inter-house tournaments and participate in sports and all school activities, to promote all-rounder sportsmen. This emphasis also instills team spirit skills for life beyond the school days, and a wider appreciation of spirit in general.
