We have also initiated Quality Circles in our school. Students work in groups, identify problems in school and come out with solutions to solve the same. This helps to build up team spirit, enhance analytical abilities and presentation skills.

Points are awarded for the different Inter-House competitions.

"Education is nothing but to teach a child to think". This is one of the best loved quotes of
Albert Eienstein. You all are aware that the vision of our school is to develop Confident, Competent and
Compassionate citizens through value based quality education. Keeping this in mind, we, the science department, put our heads together to spot talents and nurture them through science projects..Thus the SCIENCE FORUM took shape. It is an effort 'of the students, by the students, for the students as well as the parents!!' You might wonder why it is 'for the parents'? We feel that as Children are supported physically, intellectually and emotionally by the parents, it is best to display it to the parents so that they can, question, appreciate, applaud, encourage and, be delighted to see their wards fulfilling the vision of the school.
The science forums are open to class eight students who, at the door step of their
Teens have a lot of potential energy ready to be converted to kinetic energy. Five such forums
Were conducted on different topics as given below:-
|2nd July 2011||Electromagnetism & Plate tectonics
|6th August 2011||Tissue culture, stem cells & Chemistry in kitchen
|3rd December 2011||Optics & Caves
|18th February 2012||Heart diseases & Chemistry in daily life
|3rd March 2012||Energy & Course of a river
Few of the parents attended all the sessions. We as school are happy and certain that children gain a lot through this kind of exposure.
We dream of a day, when every session would be flooded with parents, encouraging the
Children, patiently holding the hands of their loved ones directing them along the right path.
Every class is taken for a field trip once a term.
- Classes IV to VIII are taken on Outward Bound Camp to stay overnight
- Class IX attends the value camp.
- Classes IX to XII are taken for trekking and camps as part of IAYP
Outward Bound Camps
All Students from classes IV to VIII are taken for Outward Bound Camps. The students accompanied by the teachers stay overnight and enjoy trekking in places like
- Centre for Economic Social Cultural Interaction, Kadavur.
- Gandhigram Rural University, Gandhigram.
- Palani Hills Conservation Council, Batlagundu
- Kodaikanal hills
We wish to give our students in class IX an experience of community living and service. We conduct residential camps during the terminal holidays. The camps help our children to imbibe good values. The students undertake service projects in the nearby villages. These camps also help to bring the teachers and the students closer. In Lakshmi School, there is a good rapport between the staff and the students.
The International Award For Young People
"The International Award for Young People" Programme (formerly called " The Duke of Edinburgh Award " ) was introduced in the year 2003-04. Under the IAYP, students go long distance trekking and learn to plan, trek and cook. They also learn to get along with each other, share and care. Students have been going to Palani hills, Kodaikanal and Masanakudi in the Nilgiris.
Every year cross-country run is organized for classes IV and above. Students run around the neighbouring places through the fields covering a distance of nearly 3 to 5 km and finally end the run by crossing obstacles set up in the school campus. Teachers also accompany the students to motivate them.
House Variety Show
On Fridays the four Houses - Anbu, Aram, Arivu and Arul take turns to give a short entertainment programme. Talent in each individual student is identified and brought out. The programme is organized by the students themselves.
The school celebrates the following in a grand manner to promote active learning and participation
