Another Bud Blooms

‘Let a hundred flowers bloom, let a hundred schools of thought blossom.’ - The minds of children are like little, fertile gardens, in which seeds can be planted in order to grow into beautiful flowers in the future.
Having this prime idea in mind, our Founder, Mr. Mohan Lal Grero has taken another massive step towards bringing education closer to the masses, by extending a new branch of the Lyceum International School network to Kurunegala, which will be inaugurated on 16th September 2016.
The population of Kurunegala is expanding and one of their basic necessities - education, is slowly becoming an exigency, which has to be fulfilled immediately. Just because these children do not live in a metropolis like Colombo, it is not appropriate that they be deprived of gaining quality education on an international level. At the outset, the school will cater to students of Lower Nursery, Upper Nursery, Pre-Grade and Grade 1, after which, the school will grow and absorb children of other age groups as well.
Lyceum Kurunegala will incorporate all the norms and traditions, which are part of the very life of Lyceum International School - all the religions will be respected and pr
ayers will be broadcast at the beginning of every day, religious classes for all religions will be conducted by well-qualified teachers and all subjects will be taught following a general / centralised syllabus and schemes of work. Extra-curricular activities will also soon be introduced for the children to flex their bodies and minds and there will be regular supervision by experienced staff attached to the parent school in Nugegoda.
With every stride that our Founder, Mr. Mohan Lal Grero takes, he is very ably assisted by his wife, Mrs. Kumari Grero (Co-ordinating Principal of Lyceum Schools). Together they have created a wonderful path to provide quality and affordable education, whilst filling all the lives they touch with knowledge, love and hope. In this journey, there is also another important personality, their son, Mr. Nikitha Grero, who is also the Director and has brought innovative and unique ideas to make various new developments in the functioning of each and every Lyceum School. This modern approach will aid in the growth and success of the Kurunegala branch as well, as his all-pervasive presence is seen and felt, wherever and whenever it is necessary, in any Lyceum School.
