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.
