Dear Fellow Alumni,
The Lyceum School has made its name in the field of education and become a benchmark in ‘A’ Levels, and continues to excel with the passage of time. Besides, its educational excellence, it has also made a name for itself in extracurricular activities, especially Community Service, Theatre, Debates and Sports. Today, the Lyceum Alumni Network spanning all over the world is proof of its direction and contribution towards quality education. The Alumnus has assumed their rightful places in various organizations and disciplines all over the world.
All good educational institutions have Alumnus and we, belonging to a very reputable Institution, should likewise have one. As former students of The Lyceum we all have old memories of our Alma mater and should build upon these associations.
We thus formed an Executive Committee comprising of myself, Shehrzad Aminullah (Class of 1991) as the President, Aysha Sheikh (Class of 1989), Vice President, Arij Javed (Class of 2005), General Secreatry, Uzma Abassi (Class of 1996), Treasurer and Jibran Nasir (Class of 2005), Legal Advisor. This Committee has been fully endorsed by The Lyceum School. Once we are over our teething problems, are a little more organized, we will filter the information from the Membership Forms, and form Sub-Committees looking at different activities such as Community Service, the Newsletter, Creative Arts, Sports Club, etc.
As we are scattered all over the world, with a strong presence in the United States of America, United Kingdom and United Arab Emirates, we are planning to introduce the USA, UK and UAE Chapter of the Elysium. We already have a few commitments, but would like to have at least two Class Coordinators for the 24 Batches of ‘A’ Levels that have graduated so far. Any of you, who would like to volunteer for the Sub Committees or as Class Coordinators, may contact one of the Executive Committee Members. We also have our Facebook Page:
which has been visited and liked by over 1700 people.
In this short span of our existence, Elysium has managed to have a Reunion Reception at The Lyceum Premises in January 2011, a Formal Dinner at the Beach Luxury to celebrate 25 years of The Lyceum in August 2012, an Elysium vs Lyceum Football Match in November 2012 and more recently an Alumni Cricket Match in January 2013; but there is still a lot more to be done!
We plan to have more get-togethers - may they be in the form of Garden Parties, Bar-be-cues, Festivals, etc. We would like to have Alumni Members as Guest Speakers, whether at the School Assembly, during Career Week or at the Graduation Ceremony. In this way they will be able to share their University and Professional experiences and guide prospective College and University Entrants at The Lyceum.
Local Community work is a very popular area, where I am proud to say that our School has been a pioneer in establishing, and we as the Alumni intend to complement this noble cause and participate in such activities. Forming an Alumni Blood Bank is one project that has sparked our interest.
Most of us have experienced our Lyceum Theatre Group which is very active and that is another area that we intend to be part of by putting up an Alumni Production. We will eventually be publishing a Newsletter – “The Chronicles of Elysium”, so do keep us posted of any achievements, significant happenings, etc.
All this will not be possible without your help and cooperation. Our Membership Form has been uploaded on the School Website. You may e-mail them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a scanned passport sized photograph and your CNIC copy. Alternatively, Membership Forms are available in School and you can fill them out and return them to School together with the required documents stated above in a sealed envelope marked Elysium. Using either Option, Please let us have the Completed Form with the enclosures.
We Welcome your ideas and look forward to any suggestions you may have regarding this group. Please remember that without your help and cooperation, we cannot succeed in our Aims.
