A Pledge to Serve
Service, an essential value engraved in every true Lyceumite’s heart, encourages them to strive with the sole purpose of serving the community as much as they can.
The support staff at the Lyceum has always been a major highlight of each and every activity, be it pulling off successful events or looking after the comfort and well-being of both the students and the school, the support staff never fails to do their best.
From the wise shayari of Yaseen bhai to Rahat bhai’s melodious voice and Zulfiqar bhai’s heavenly coffee, the passion and dedication towards each individual task is visible.
To honour such great personalities, a group of students – both from the Student Council and the student body – planned a Lunch for the 85 support staff members of Lyceum. While the lunch was itself was scheduled for 1:00 pm, the students were hard at work from 9:00 am. They spent this time helping with the lunch preparations and decorations. The dedication and commitment shown was remarkable, as was their enthusiasm to give back to the support staff.
While the main course was prepared at the Kitchen (Aloo Pulao and Chicken), the students prepared the starters and desserts including the vegetable cutlets, salad, lemonade and Kheer themselves. The students also served the entire support staff throughout the lunch, making sure that they fully rested and enjoyed the meal (though, they insisted to help out in any way). With Miss Annabel running around to help as much as possible and capturing the best moments in her camera, the entire event was a whirlwind of activity and joy that resonated such a pure dedication and appreciation for the entire community.
We sincerely hope that the upcoming students will uphold this outstanding legacy, if only to see the sweet smiles of the support staff once more.
