The entire programme was focused on building cultural values in Lyceumers from their formative ages.
The annual primary concerts of Gr.02, 03 & 05 students of Lyceum International School, Nugegoda were held recently at the school’s main hall.

The programme included a mix of English, Sinhala, & Tamil items. The hall and backdrop were beautifully decorated too.
It is no easy task to put together an event of this magnitude, and it was made possible thanks to all hardworking teachers & students at Lyceum, Nugegoda.
