The creative societies at Lyceum seek to promote experiential learning and promote active discussions through engagement with creative pursuits.
The Lyceum encourages students to learn by doing and actively participating in learning activities. Learning at the Lyceum is not limited to the confines of the classroom but extends to student societies and activities.
Leadership and Internationalism
As part of the Round Square worldwide association of schools, the Lyceum promotes values of Leadership and Internationalism as part of the school’s core values.
- Honour Society: to promote interactive learning by providing students an opportunity to volunteer to coach their peers in areas they are having trouble.
- LyCorp (Business Society): to develop leadership and entrepreneurial skills through business games allowing students to showcase their skills.
- Debate Society: to provide a platform to students to hone their debating and public speaking skills and to better understand world affairs. The Debate Society holds regular training sessions to prepare students to compete in national and international competitions.
Round Square started as a group of European schools, led by German educational philosopher Kurt Hahn, which shared unique and ambitious goals regarding human development. It has since grown to a family of 120 Global Member Schools around the world. The Lyceum, having been founded on similar principles, was the first and to date only school in Pakistan to be invited to join Round Square in 2011. As a Round Square school, the Lyceum commits to the principles of Internationalism, Democracy, Environmentalism, Adventure, Leadership and Service. Lyceum students have the opportunity to interact with students from around the globe at conferences, service projects, adventure trips and debates to name a few.
SPORTS AND OUTWARD BOUND
The Lyceum invests in physical health and fitness, and has very active sports teams including but not limited to the following:
Outward Bound / Lyceum Adventure Club
Inspired by Kurt Hahn’s Ten Principles of Expeditionary Learning, and guided by a love for the environment, nature and our beautiful country, the school organizes trips to the Great Outdoors, open to all students depending on trip capacity. These excursions foster youth leadership through participation in wilderness outdoor activities and often offer the experience of a lifetime. All adventure/outward bound activities are subject to a stringent risk assessment and are conducted by experienced staff. Students are expected to work as a team, learn about outdoor survival and safety and generally contribute to all aspects of the trip. Students learn to respect their environment and comply with the principle of leaving no trace.
