The Karachi United School Championship started out quite smoothly for the Lyceum, contrary to expectations. A dominant performance in all 3 group matches helped the team top the group as intense training followed. A thumping win in the round of 16 eventually set Lyceum up for a hard-fought victory against Bright Success in the quarter. With the team in the semi-final, chances to lift the KUSC trophy, that seemed real bleak at the start of a year, now looked like an actual possibility. A convincing 3-0 win over Agha Khan, the team that beat the current champions Cedar, set the stage for one last showdown against Nixor college. With nerves taking over and the crowds cheering, a thrilling final ensued; an equally matched performance took the match to penalty shoot-outs where Nixor prevailed as Champions. It was an unfortunate, heartbreaking end for the Lyceum team that grabbed the fair-play award in addition to the runners up trophy. Raneem Ul Hoda (C) was declared as the Most Valuable Player of the tournament.
LySlam is thrilled to invite you to Slam Night 2020: Days of Future Past, an event that is designed to celebrate words, soul, creative expression, and is an occasion in which our students write original work and have the courage to present slivers of their very selves.
This is the time to celebrate the ones who scrawl phrases on the back of their notebooks when inspiration strikes, the ones who:
‘promised myself that I would always put things down on paper
whether they were letters to women
who never knew I loved them
or in sticky notes to bullies
demanding their immediate surrender’ – Mike McGee
Over 9 years, LySlam has become a memorable platform to nurture one’s creativity and confidence, making it as wonderful to perform as it is to watch.
The details of the event are as follows:
Date: 13th February 2020
Timings: 6:00 to 8:00 pm, please be seated no later than 5.45 pm
Venue: The Lyceum
Entry fee: Love, passion, respect, and energy!
The event is open to all, including people from outside of the Lyceum.
Blythe Baird, in her piece ‘Pruning Into Art’ says, “Poetry is the way I choose to expose the myth of reality”. Join us in our exploration of time and reality, artfully brought to life by words and voices in the form of contemporary slam poetry.
At the end of our competition and showcase segment by members of LySlam, we will have a few limited spots for an open mic, which is open to all. However, if anyone does wish to perform in the open mic segment, please send your piece to us 48 hours beforehand. And if anyone wishes to invite friends and family from outside of The Lyceum, please fill out this form:
We look forward to seeing you, and we hope (and know) you’ll have a wonderful time!

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.
