“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom”. Mere inception of information is not the tenants of knowledge that inspires the wisdom of heart and learning of basic concepts of knowledge. Wisdom is a collective reinforcement of corrective humane behavior. The holistic behavior is rooted in multifaceted paths that are formed in the temple of learning. As Lawrencians, we focus on the formation of minds and hearts that foster God fearing ethical values ’ and spiritual human morality.
As one walks the hallways of the school every day, one can hear the chatter of eager minds, the shouts of excitement from the victorious athletes, the thump of dancers’ feet and the sound of voices harmonizing. The perpetual energy, movement and enthusiasm permeate the atmosphere at St. Lawrence’s. We are a school with a difference! We value individualism, creativity and innovation and strive to nurture them in our students.
Our motto ‘Spread the Light’ is at the heart of everything we do at the school.Discipline, values and integrity are the foundation of our school. We aim not just to impart knowledge to the students, but to inculcate in them wisdom, compassion and a humanitarian spirit. We have multicultural student population; hence we teach children tolerance and respecting each other’s . culture. Besides rigorous scholastic programmes, we seek to develop and nurture the different 5 facets of a child.The school encourages all students to participate in a variety of co-curricular activities from dance, art and drama to a variety of sports to social work to environmental conservation activities. It is important for a child to explore and find their strengths in order to ‘ reach their true potential. Whether a child is an introvert or extrovert personality, the aim is to nurture the child into a self-confident individual.
Our mission is to continue to do what we have always done; develop this school and the 1 students with integrity and values; also to give our students the best opportunities and the best all-round education. Our vision is to produce conscientious, smart and confident citizens of India who will go out into the world as torch bearers.

As I thank the members of editorial board for their marvelous and lucid presentation, I also wish all the readers a pleasant go through. May God bless us all and St. Lawrence intercede for us.
FROM THE HEADMISTRESS DESK
We live in a world where the pattern of education takes a leap every day with the modern technology. As an educator over a decade, I experience a tremendous transformation in the field of teaching and learning. With every notable change, I see teachers widening their possibilities in moulding the young generation entrusted to their care and students exploring ways to be creative and efficient .Parent’s wholehearted cooperation in every innovative idea suggested by the school makes things easier.
At this era of time, the team of Management and Teachers at St. Lawrence School focus on building our student’s abilities to a higher level of learning in a safe and secure environment. We emphasize on their skills to device effective solutions to real-world problems. We encourage them to become thoughtful and caring individuals with an awareness of social, environmental and global issues. We as a team inculcate in our students the skills of Critical Thinking, Communication, Collaboration, and Creativity.
God Almighty has chosen each of us as parents and mentors at this period of time, to carve out a great generation for the present and future. Let us redefine the way of Teaching, the way of Learning and the way of Nurturing. Let us embark on a journey, as a team of co-creators in building strong, wise, sensitive and genuine human beings for this beautiful world.
Youth is not only a generation but is also a Feeling and an Emotion. Walk with them, Beside them Before them and Behind them, as a LIGHT to guide them.
