Education consists of curriculum & Co-Curriculum. “Curriculum” is a very slow aspect of Education which entails ‘Bookish Knowledge & which is ever-lasting; the focus of education is upon mental development of a child. The holistic development of personality incorporates Mental, Physical, Emotional, Cultural, Social, Spiritual etc. developments; the ‘Mental Development’ is possible with the deep, sincere, continuous & devoted studies of subject or Subjects. The ‘Learning by rote’ is one among many retainable methods of studies.

The divergent aspects of co-curriculum like Music, Dance, Art, Sport etc. are part of Education, and not main part of the Education as these cannot replace ‘Knowledge’ for complete ‘Manhood’. These things also play an important role, but cannot replace ‘studies, learning, knowledge of subjects; with the help of these activities one may become a good artist, a good musician, a good dancer or a good player but one can not become a good engineer, a good administrator, a good orator, a good advocate etc. There may be one among millions lucky persons like Sachin and other very few entertainers, but country can be run only with Scholars, Professionals, Advocates, C.A., Writers, Orators etc. not by the musicians, Dancers, Actors, Painters etc. Hence due importance should be given to the Co-Curricular & Extra-Curricular activities in the School - Curriculum, but not at the cost of main objectives of imparting and achieving, teaching and learning, studies and knowledge. My special appeal is to the teaching community, parents and students that we should follow the dictum of ‘survival of the fittest’. We can remain ‘fit’ professionally, economically, socially etc. to survive and succeed in life and career.

We should stress upon keeping a balance between Curriculum and Co-Curricular, between activities like music, art, dance, sports etc. and pursuit of learning, knowledge studies etc.




It is great pleasure and privilege that The Lawrence Public School has successfully completed 44 years of its meritorious service to the society. For the last four decades, our school has been in the news for its value-based quality education, outstanding CBSE Results, and excellence in co-curricular activities. Our students bag top positions and win awards, be it Academic, Cultural or Sports Competitions. The credit for all this tremendous progress goes to the School Management, devoted teachers, promising students and zealous parents. We ponder that still we have to achieve higher goals.

I have always believed that ‘The Child’ is the joint responsibility of teacher and parents. Hence it is their sacred duty to provide congenial atmosphere both at home and at school. Let the child grow, bloom and blossom in the congenial atmosphere at both the places.
