LAMUN ( Little Angels Model United Nations )In a world of strife and starvation,anger and intolerance are theenemies of understanding.Prejudice is a burden thatconfuses the past, threatens thefuture and renders the presentinaccessible. What the UnitedNations does is to unburdenglobal nations of this enmity,prejudices and hatred so that manis not condemned to make warand we may live in peace.

FacultyTeachers are the very foundation on which the entire edifice of a great schoolrests. They are like divine gardeners who trim the unwanted shoots andfoster the growth of the tender plants named children. Regular motivationand training of teachers is an ongoing phenomenon at LAHS.These include sending the teachers to attend important seminars andsymposiums all over India and abroad and arranging for them special in-house training in language skills, computer, problem solving, spiritualempowerment by experts in the specific fields from time to time.An internal motivational bulletin The Mentor is published every month tokeep teachers focused on their role and bring out their hidden potentials.LAHS teachers are widely travelled professionals who have visited NASASpace Station and have seen the spectrum of life in Turkey, Malaysia,Mauritius, Nepal, USA, UK and visited many other countries.
Junior Youth Empowerment ProgramFor Little Angels High School, moral training of children is a serious concern. To thiseffect, a special junior youth program is destined to go a long way. Junior youth differ fromsmall children in many ways with their special mental and intellectual needs. The main aimof the Junior Youth Empowerment Programme (JYEP) is to empower the young studentsto understand the purpose of life and to become conscious participants in the process oftheir own growth and development and offer a worthwhile contribution to theadvancement of human civilization - a noble goal for which each individual has been sentupon this earth.To attain this goal, LAHS Junior Youth Empowerment Program focuses on certainobjectives, such as enhancing the language skills and the power of expression of childrenof middle school level, to prepare young students to approach the investigation of physical,social and spiritual reality in a scientific manner. It is an interactive program for junioryouth which uses open methods to engage our adolescents in a conscious effort to explorethe truth and analyze the constructive and destructive forces operating in society and torecognize the influence these forces exert on their thoughts and actions, sharpening theirspiritual perception, enhancing their powers of expression and reinforcing moralstructures that will serve them throughout their lives. There is a full-fledged dedicatedfaculty assisting children in this process of empowerment.
Career Counselling Providing education to a child does not simply mean minting him or her into a graduate and then leaving them alone on the pathway of life. Students need the right guidance for choosing a befitting career matching with their aptitude and caliber. Little Angels High School has a dedicated full time counselor along with a state-of- the-art Psychology Lab unique and one of its kind in the entire State. What is important is that this state-of-the-art Psychology Lab does not only help thestudents analyze their mental inclinations and areas of interest but also identify theirpsycho-moral strong or weak points by conducting numerous psycho metric tests for thestudents on a regular basis.In addition, the school regularly invitesveteran professionals and alumni from all thewalks of life to conduct interactive sessionwith the students in which they can have in-depth understanding about a certain career.
Sports Sports are an integral part of holistic education. We cannot imagine the lives of our children without games and sports. Children do not only enjoy sports but they even learn the most valuable lessons of life, such as courage, patience, tolerance, team spirit and discipline. At LAHS, games and sports occupy an important place in students lives. We are proud that we have one of the best and most well-furnished Sports Wing in Gwalior with copious play grounds for outdoor games and ample spaces for indoor games of all sorts. LAHS sports facilities incorporate all major sports and physical Facilities such asFOOTBALL, HOCKEY, CRICKET, BASKETBALL,KHO-KHO, TENNIS, TABLE TENNIS, JUDO, TAEKWONDO,YOGA, THROW BALL, ATHLETICS, CHESS,CARROM, SWIMMIMG, etc.Our students participate in the CBSE WEST ZONE &CBSE NATIONALS every year and have brought backlots of laurels to the school. LAHS students have stoodas winners in hosts of NATIONAL and STATE levelsports and bagged several Gold, Silver and Bronzemedals and many Overall Championships over theyears.There are regular sports classes for the entire school. Ina sense, sports comprise a part of compulsoryeducation at LAHS. LAHS has a full-fledged Sports Department with the most talented coaches and faculties specialized in their respective games. A specific feature is our Morning coaching program conducted throughout the year by the specialized coaches and LAHS sports teachers. This specialized training facility is free of cost for our selected students who are picked up from home by school buses early in the morning and brought to school for exclusive training.There are 12 dedicated Sports teachers at our school -- allvery well qualified and specialized in respective Games.
Social Services Projects “Every human is born to carry forward an ever-advancing civilization”, said Bahaullah, the Founder of Bahai Faith. The same ideology has since long been maintained in our Vedic culture which emphasizes that “Sarve Bhavantu Sukhinah” (Let each soul be happy). Serving people and making them happy is not just a blank ideology for us. We translate it through our acts of kindness. The aspects of Social Service Projects are well integrated with our Junior Youth Empowerment Program (JYEP) because we believe that good knowledge is useless without good action.The spiritual empowerment our children gain at theschool campus is further implemented into activeinvolvement with these children with special needswho require a helping hand and, above all, true lovefrom all of us. Our students collaborate with anumber of humanitarian organizations. To name afew of them, they have a good rapport with ATMAJYOTI, a hostel for visually challenged girls. LAHSchildren help them in many ways including writingtheir examination papers as these visuallychallenged girls cannot do so on their own.. Ourstudents also extend a helping hand to AMARJYOTI children who are physically challenged andROSHNI, the rehabilitation centre for people withcerebral palsy. LAHS students frequently visit these institutions to mix up with these boys and girls with special needs, distribute sweets and fruit, spend their quality time with them, play with them and do many things to make them feel that they are useful members of our human society who can contribute to its upliftment. These associations have created a sense of value in the hearts of these children. Many of these physically challenged children set up their stalls every year at LAHS and sell out handicrafts made by hand. This effort has improved their self-esteem and also contributed to their economic advancement.
Saving the Ecology This small but beautiful world the Earth is the only home where humankind lives...the only peaceful lap of our common Mother. Yet, this mother is now trapped in the claws of the cruel giants who are depleting its resources and scorching its face with global warming. LAHS children contribute their humble mite in saving the earth for the future generation. LAHS has a vibrant Eco Club of students actively exerting value-oriented efforts for a safer atmosphere by tree-planting campaign and creating awareness towards the three Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle).LAHS declared itself a completely POLYBAG FREE ZONE more than 10 years ago when most schools did noteven think about the hazardous impacts of polythene.Little Angels High School pays its homage to Nature by spending a considerable budget on its beautiful gardensone of the Best Gardens in Gwalior having received Excellence Awards from Dainik Bhaskar for three yearsconsecutively.
Educational Excursions According to a well-known proverb: “Knowledge without travel is like a boat on dry land”. Our mind becomes static and confined by seeing the same people daily and following the same lifestyle with each sunrise. When we visit new places and meet new people, it casts an abiding impact on our minds. A physical journey promotes a mental journey into novel thoughts and nascent ideas.Educational excursions have, therefore, been an intrinsic element of LAHS education. Every year inDecember, when most of India is enjoying pleasant winter inviting people to bask in its golden sunlight, oursneakers go on board to places of endless charmslike the students in the famous book of HermannHesse Narcissus and Goldmund.LAHS students excursion trips have measured thenooks and corners of India. Ask them any placefrom the northern tip of India such as Jammu &Kashmir to the utmost south at Kanyakumari, andfrom Kolkata in east to Goa in west, and they willtell you all about their culture and cuisine,languages and traditions, religions and beliefs,everything.Our children have visited a number ofinternational venues as well, such as KennedySpace Centre and NASA in America, and arewidely travelled young citizens who have been exposed to the vibrant ambiences of Mauritius, Nepal, Turkey,U.K., and a number of other countries. In this way, they have been able to realize the Vedic vision of“Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam”, reiterated by Bahaullah that: “This earth is but one country and mankind itscitizens”.
InfrastructureA school is not just a brick-n-wall structure made up of class rooms. Life is added to education byproviding children state-of-the-art facilities which include:ComputersThe Computer Wing also includes separate Multimedia Library with scores of educational CDs.
