Hosting ABRSM’s High Scorers’ Concert – Delhi NCR on 1st February,2020.

At Lancers we strive to ensure that our students are given opportunities to shine beyond the confines of the classroom. We believe that to nurture a passion is the only way to create genius. The recent collaboration with ABRSM is one such endeavour. The collaboration between Lancers International School and ABRSM opens a pathway for quality musical pedagogy which further allows students here at Lancers to learn so much more than what is in their textbooks. Our association with ABSRM is one more in a long line of non-scholastic activities that give the students the edge they need in the world today. We acknowledge the fact that a grade from ABRSM carries a worldwide recognition and that the exams are designed to motivate learners to develop their musical prowess. Our aspirations go beyond achieving certification. As a leader, I believe that creating and responding to music provides for developing life skills that one aspires to possess.The purpose is to enable all of our students to acquire abilities to create music that will inspire others, to go beyond the norms of traditional and lead a better and more expressive world. Students provided with opportunities to express themselves and be acknowledged globally is a legacy parents and schools should encourage. And what more means of expressing oneself can one ask for in creating music.

At Lancers International School, celebrating Christmas is joyous and an uplifting occasion. As the school is a happy place for children, Lancers organized a Carnival this year on 21 st of December, 2019 with the joint efforts of students, parents and teaching faculties. The preparation started two weeks prior to the Carnival event by decorating the Christmas tree with shiny balls and flashy lights, making Christmas art pieces/ wall hangings for the purpose of enhancing the school foyer. The carnival was a display of creative thinking, leadership skills and teamwork spirit. Through this event, parents and students connected with others and tiny tots got a chance to enjoy rides and other secret Santa games.

The Lion King At Lancers International School

Lion King

This year’s Early Years Production was The Lion King. All our students from Nursery to Grade 1 had the most amazing time dressing up in fun costumes and dancing in front of an audience of over 400 people. This was our eighth production; some of the earlier ones being Moana and other Disney stories. All the children were dressed in colourful animal costumes and that made them very happy.

What made the production a success was not only the fact that the students were extremely confident and comfortable on stage, but also the props designed added an authentic feel to the production. Speaking of design, our school principal and teachers came together to create a glorious and tall mountain using desks and chairs, covering it with recycled newspaper and draping it with fifty yards of silk cloth to make it appear as if a river is flowing through the rocks with tall giraffe cut-outs on the side. On the other end of the stage was the majestic Pride Rock, peppered with beautifully painted cacti. The LCD screen with The Lion King poster at the back rooted the audience into the production even more and the parents felt proud and emotional.

Shares Mrs. Sana, one of the parents, about one of our teachers, “At the outset, please let me congratulate you for making such a great dance performance possible by KG-B. It’s only and only your hard work and devotion that made this possible… considering that some kids didn’t even remember the steps until one day before! Had you not motivated them and channelised their energy into a positive way, then this would have never been made possible. I loved Alina’s performance and the Grace with which she danced. Adored it completely. I am not saying this just because I am her mum but also because she portrayed great courage to put up a great show even though she had a nose bleed early this morning. We all love you and admire you and want to thank you for making our kids the best.”

Says Mr. Sameer, another proud parent about one of the teachers, “We would like to thank you for arranging such a wonderful show and for giving our son the opportunity to star in this drama. Yes, he was over the moon! As parents, we enjoyed every minute of it and enjoyed performances of every child. Thank you again for everything. You have indeed made a big impact on Sayhan over the past few months, which is evident from his constant joy in attending school on a daily basis.”

Shares Mr. Justin, yet another happy parent about the performance, “I am writing to say that we loved The Lion King and we think that you, the staff and the kids did an excellent job! This show was fantastic for the kids age range and I couldn’t have been more proud of (especially my Pumba). Thank you very much for all of your efforts, I know this was no small feat to pull off.”

World Culture Day Celebrations At Lancers International School

world culture day

If our World Culture Day had a theme song, it would be John Lenon’s Imagine. The goal of celebrating World Culture Day at LIS each year is to expose our students to different cultures and traditions. It’s a way to come together and learn from one another.

Whether it’s art, sports, food, music, textiles or even subtle cultural nuances, the World Culture Day at LIS covers it all. It also gives our students an opportunity to be more accepting of other cultures by deeply learning about them.

But learning at LIS is also about having fun and involving them in celebrating this rather unique and fascinating day. This year’s theme represented many interesting countries including Thailand, Egypt, Canada, Australia, Spain, Russia, UAE, Germany, Philippines, Italy, China, France, Mexico and England. Each class represented a particular country, and stalls and games were set up accordingly.

Speaking of games, students got the opportunity to take part in many famous games of these specific countries and also got a chance to learn about their many well-known landmarks. For instance, one of the students re-created The Great Wall of China in the classroom using props, paint and cloth. Similarly, one parent from Canada taught students how to play ice-hockey in class. Another parent introduced students to Japanese Origami.

What makes the World Culture Day a success every year is that the parents are just as involved as the students are. Whether it’s preparing lectures and presentations for students, helping children prepare traditional food, organising stalls and games for students, parents are actively involved with World Culture Day.

Among other interesting activities planned for the day, what stood out was that each student had a hand-made passport that he got stamped during his visit to every class representing a particular country. The teachers and principal acted as Immigration Police and helped students navigate moving from one class to the next and have a marvellous time in the process. The next day students dressed in their traditional clothing to school and that triggered another engaging dialogue within our diverse student community.

The Armenian Ambassador Visit Lancer International School

Lancers International School organized an event for the consummation of Community Project. It was attended by His Excellency Mr. Armen Martirosyan – Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Armenia in the Republic of India (2015-Date) and Former Ambassador of India to Armenia and Georgia (2009-2012), Mr. Achal Kumar Malhotra. The co-organizers of the program -President and Vice-President of Indo-Armenian Friendship NGO – Rananjay Anand & Ruzanna Ashughyan, also graced the event with their presence.

Indo-Armenian Friendship NGO, also known as IAF, was officially registered in Armenia since 2011. It is committed to benchmark India-Armenia relationships on the world-map while acting as a connecting bridge between India and Armenia. The NGO promotes people to people connection, strengthen cultural, socio-economic ties and trade engagement for a prosperous future with great emphasis on bilateral engagement. It also aims to educate Armenians on India and Indians on Armenia.
Another important highlight of the event was the book ‘India – Armenia – So Far yet So Close’ authored by His Excellency Achal Malhotra. He said,” The book is an attempt to bridge the gap. It is meant to remind some of the glorious moments of close interaction and peaceful coexistence. This is a dedication to the 25th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between India and Armenia.”

India –Armenia relation

Armenia and India have developed ties in different spheres, among that energy, business, security, etc. Unfortunately, education and particularly relations in higher education is not among the sectors so far enforced and developed. Lancerians chose Armenia and its culture as the subject of their research this year with the following aim
First of all to empower relations between individuals in India and Armenia engaged in academic activities,
Second to popularize the Armenian higher education opportunities among students and researchers in India and become a fertile ground for future collaborations and co-operation

Third, through this guided and academically oriented tour to present Indian colleagues the possibilities and opportunities available in Armenia for international students and researchers.

To foster academic, educational and cultural relations between Armenia and India, Lancers International School hosted the event. This memorable event helped the pupil to understand the Armenian system and opened the doors to explore Armenian opportunities.

Community Project at Lancers

The motive behind involving students for a Community Project was to help them collaborate and pursue service learning. Being a part of IB school, CAS (Creativity, Activity and Service) is a mandatory component of the curriculum that provides academic rigor of the educational programme. As part of IB MYP requirements, MYP students formed groups and spent dedicated time working on their Community Project. Therefore, Lancers International School is one of the best international schools in Gurgaon where students enjoy being challenged intellectually, socially and personally.
